Newest restaurant from Gaston Acurio, this time having anticuchos as the main protagonist of this new success story. This restaurant offers not only anticuchos, but also some other criollo Peruvian dishes and nice grilled meat.

As with all Gaston Acurio's restaurants, you can expect fine dishes, with great taste, good presentation and a nice ambience. How ever, you can also expect a big line unless you make reservations.

Price Range: Moderate to expensive

Pasta Sciutta

Phone: 442-7273

Small restaurant located in the border of San Isidro and Lince, a few blocks away from the Financial District of San Isidro.

They offer good and affordable pasta dishes like spaghetti, fetuccini, ravioli and other, prepared with their own home made pasta. The Fetuccini a La Napolitana is quite good and will fill you up (fetuccini with meat red sauce, covered with ham, grilled chicken breast and mozarella cheese gratin).

They also offer lunch combos but since they are located near the Financial District, it can get crowded at lunch time.
Price Range: Inexpensive

Old and traditional chifa located a few blocks from the main plaza of Miraflores. It has a very simple and old decoration but the food is quite decent. Taipá a la plancha as well as their arroz chaufa especial (fried rice with shrimps, duck and pork) are pretty good.
They have lunch and dinner combos (menus) that are great for everyday lunch or dinner if you work or live nearby. Beside, they offer delivery to surrounding areas.
Price Range: Inexpensive
