If we asked you to name a Peruvian restaurant a short walk from the Lorimer L stop in Williamsburg, you might immediately say Llama Inn. But there’s another Peruvian spot that’s less crowded, less expensive, and still very enjoyable, and that’s Chimu. Most dishes on the menu are under $20 for a generous portion, so two people can easily share an appetizer (like the avocado stuffed with shrimp and vegetables) and an entree (like the fried rice with a ton of mixed seafood) without spending too much money. This place also works well for casual group dinners, when you can split some wine (all bottles are $40) and sides, like the fried yucca with a variety of sauces.
