This place does not offer only chinese food, but Peruvian, too, made a little in Chinese style. Place is very delicated, and still not expensive, for instance a beer is 6 soles (quite normal price). There are many favourite dishes:- chichonfan con verduras or lomo- ensalada de pepino con calamar picante- filete de pollo con tausi a la plancha-...more

USC Joyeria: Different and beautiful jewelry
There a thousand silver jewelry places in Lima but I really liked this one because it was different. The rings are gorgeous and the prices are really great for one time only designed stuff. It’s at the Inka market in FRONT of Hiroaka(there are two Inka markets in Miraflores), right next to a huge computer place. It’s called USC Joyeria and it’s towards the back, near Av. Arequipa. It is a great find after being in Cusco for a month where stuff was really expensive!Related to:

Miraflores Tourist Traps
The standard of the chinese food has changed a lot since I last came to Peru.
Never, ever go to the chinese in Comandante Espinar near Pizza Hut.
Food is horrible, wine is foul and the staff incompetent and agressive.
There's another chinese restaurant where the food is really not top quality, in the corner of Benavides with Schell (big restaurant)
Unique Suggestions: There are happily still some good restaurants like the one in Larcomar.
Miraflores Sports & Outdoors

This forms a heavy green protection over the sand and stone and makes the hillside very nice looking.The beach side of Lima - specially in Miraflores - is a sight you never forget. It makes you want to come back another time just to look again.(on the photo...more
