Cusine Neighborhood Peruvian Sweetwater

Peru Criollo

Peru Criollo sits on Southwest 108 Avenue and Bird Road. The location is easy to find, and the place itself takes after simple, Latin American-style diners,with several wooden tables and chairs and a long bar. It has a large selection of seafood and Peruvian specialties such as their ceviches, several soups and multiple appetizers. However, it also serves a variety of chicken, meats and salads. I ordered the usual ceviche and lomo saltado. The food is brought promplty after ordering. The portions are a good size, and that’s coming from someone who doesn’t enjoy meager servings.

The ceviche was the better of the two, although its flavor was a bit different than that from downtown seafood restaurants. The fish was tender and thoroughly soaked in a rich, lemon-based sauce. The lomo saltado, however, was somewhat bland. Although it was bathed in sauce, the meat felt slightly dry and could have used more seasoning. While not a bad option, it could certainly consist of a better flavor for its $12.99 value. Overall, the experience was a positive one in regards to food quality and service.
