Runas Peruvian Cuisine

$$$$(954) 534-9146
Hours:FRIDAY12:00PM to 11:00PM

Runas is a Peruvian restaurant just a block north of Downtown Hollywood. It’s located in a historic building and split between a dark clubstaurant space and an ornate vintage bar that reminds us of a Toulouse Lautrec painting. The food here is some of the best Peruvian food in South Florida. Ceviches and tiraditos are their specialty, and they nail a classic ceviche. But they also make some really unique riffs on the classic, including the ceviche runas, which is infused with smoked ají and torched before arriving at the table. It gives us everything we love about ceviche and pollo a la brasa (AKA Peruvian rotisserie chicken) in one refreshing, spicy bite.

They do other Peruvian dishes very well, too. The lomo saltado has tender medium rare chunks of sirloin, a non-traditional touch that works great. They make a proper tacu tacu that you can get as the base for their saltado or smothered in picante de mariscos, a creamy and spicy seafood sauce. You can also come here just to drink. The bar has spirits imported from Peru, like different piscos and Peruvian craft beer.
