For South American cuisine, it’s hard to beat Jose Chu-Jon’s place. Formerly called Lucuma, MIA Empanadas is a restaurant in South Bountiful that features empanadas and tamales with housemade Peruvian-style aji dipping sauces such as para los labios ardientes (“for burnin’ lips sauce”), aji primavera, amor serrano and huancaina. The real draw here, however, is the sweets, such as tres leches and pionono cakes, frangipane, tarts (premade or made-to-order), scones, dulce de leche and fabulous flan in three flavors: original, de queso (cheese) or chocolate. Before heading out the door, treat yourself to a chicha morada, a purple corn drink infused with pineapple and cinnamon.
