SF Weekly's Description

At this Peruvian stall in the heart of the Mission Market, the stews and Chinese-Peruvian stir-fries are decent, the papa a la huancaina (potatoes with cheese sauce) could feed a family of four, and the pan con chicharron contains all the markers of a perfect sandwich. El Perol piles slow-roasted pork butt - with all the flavor of carnitas and all the tenderness of braised pork belly - into a crusty French roll. On top, the cooks layer finely sliced onions and grilled sweet potatoes; drizzles of a green chile-vinegar sauce set off all the flavors. Dessert means one thing: a heart-shaped alfajor, a shortbread sandwich cookie filled with dulce de leche, which will send powdered sugar all over your clothes and have you returning within the week.

    A good place to eat Peruvian food, my favorite is the "Papa a la Huancaina" and "Seco con Frejoles"
