Ranchito Mi Peru 2 is a true huarique in Miami - a typical restaurant serving hearty, homestyle dishes. These are typically the most affordable places to eats in Lima, but they’re still popular with every social class. Weekends are the best time to come here for beloved but hard-to-find traditional dishes. Saturday is when they serve the excellent Afro-Peruvian dish called chanfainita, a stew of chopped cow lung with diced potatoes in a spicy ají panca sauce. The bofe (lungs) here are tender and slightly chewy, offering a nice contrast to the powdery potatoes. Sunday specials include another rarely found classic - pachamanca a la olla, an Andean dish of various meats marinated in native herbs, potatoes, corn, and slightly sweet humitas steamed together in a pot.
