Taste of Peru
Some may remember 1998 as the year that Google came into existence, but equally important is that Taste of Peru opened in Rogers Park. Their ceviche is a loaded combination of squid, shrimp, and corvinha cooked in lime juice and complemented by sweet potato and choclo. We also like their arroz con mariscos (a mountain of pillowy yellow rice and seafood) as well as their lomo saltado with savory skirt steak, onions, tomatoes, and french fries. The space is decorated with Peruvian artwork and only has a few tables, but it’s a great BYOB spot for a casual dinner with friends.
