Description

Miami New Times' Description

Few diners can resist this casual, traditional Peruvian eatery's jalea mixta, a platter of lightly battered fried seafood and yuca garnished with a crunchy chili-and-lime-marinated onion/pepper topping that beautifully balances the dish's grease component. One order is a meal for two, but if four split it as a starter, they could sample some of the other classics that make Peruvian cuisine one of the world's most diverse. Tacu tacu, a savory spiced patty of rice and canary beans (served here with a steak), is a creole specialty reflecting African diaspora influences. Lomo saltado - a stir-fry like lo mein but with French fries instead of noodles -- is 19th-century Asian-Latin fusion: soy sauce and technique courtesy of Chinese immigrant workers, potatoes one of the 3,000 varieties grown in the Andes. And cau cau (tripe and potato stew in smooth yellow aji amarillo sauce), an ancient Incan dish, might be for the adventuresome, but El Chalan's cau cau de mariscos, a house special substituting shellfish for the offal, is accessible to all.

    Their Ceviche is AMAZING!

    For some reason the fried calamari here is among my all-time favorites. And the ambience is much improved with the new decor and especially the new softer lighting.

    Your average Peruvian restaurant. For better food & less crowd, check out El Flor de La Canela...or Limon y Sabor.

    Best Ceviche in Miami. The price is right, the food is fresh and the place is always jumping. Better than the food trucks!!
