When most people think of Peruvian cuisine, they think of ceviche—fish cooked strictly by the acidity of lime juice, with added onions. As a national export, that tangy, coastal dish can be bought from carts on the streets of San Diego to Europe’s finest restaurants. However, it takes a Peruvian to perfect the recipe, and El Rocoto owner Macario Diaz serves up a mean ceviche. But he also serves Peru’s other culinary specialties, namely pollo a la brasa and lomo saltado, at this quaint hole-in-the-wall.
