    El Fogon: true local flavor

    Though just off the Plaza de Armas, this is a tourist restaurant that seems to still cater to Peruvian tourists. The menu is in Spanish only and relies heavily on Peruvian standards. The decor is a bit tacky and the flourescent lighting irritating, you can't deny that you are in a true local place.

    Favorite Dish: This is a place to try lomo saltado (a beef strip stir fry garnished with cilantro and served over french fries and rice). We also had our first taste of mazamorra morada (a purple pudding made from purple maize).
