La Picantería

Peruvian in Lima

Just blocks from the famous Surquillo market, diners share two long tables to feast on sea urchin omelette, stuffed rocoto peppers and stewed osso buco. These traditional plates, hailing from both northern and southern Peru, come with an edge. Chef Héctor Solís knows chiles and doles out just enough heat to leave you at the edge of wanting more.

Few dishes are offered in individual portions. Family portions feed two to four people.
