The Hats of Peru

October 10, 2007

I really dislike the RGJ’s food critic, mostly for his swipes at Peg’s for not being “representative” of Reno. Regardless, I do keep track of his work. Recently coming up for review was Machu Picchu, Reno’s only Peruvian restaurant. Bin and I went and checked it out last night. We were literally the only ones in the restaurant, which is a shame. We both had steak based dishes. The meat was delicious and the sides, although carb heavy, were divine: fried yucca, tasty rice, fried plantains, and french fries.

I give it a strong “recommend.”

    Next time we’re in town… we’re there man! South American countries know how to prepare steak. And fried plantains rock.

    Well, when you put it that way (fried this, fried that) no wonder I liked it!!

    It almost feels like you could pass through a world of eco-systems with a day-hike, but I know it’s hundreds of miles.

    I’ve never had the guts to go for proper ethnic restaurants. I’m always so desperate to have a “good experience” when I take the time and money to go out, that even though I almost always like ethnic food (in fact usually better than Amero-bland chain resturants) I never get around to eating it.
