You start the meal with super-thin house-made plantain chips-the best we've ever had-and a dipping sauce not unlike mint chutney with a little more cream. We couldn't help but empty the bowl while we waited for our appetizers. The chupe de camarones ($10) could hardly be called an appetizer. A hearty Peruvian stew with prawns, fresh cheese, potatoes, a fried egg, and a slice of rustic bread in it, it could easily be a meal-a perfect lunch on these cold-ass days. The ceviche clasico ($13), fresh, raw fish in "leche de tigre"-lime juice, red onion, and cilantro-was out of this world. The bold citrus flavor, combined with the freshness of the fish, will make you forget the name of your favorite sushi joint. We also got the ceviche mixto ($15), the same thing except that in addition to fish, it featured calamari, octopus, shrimp, and habanero peppers. Both are served with glazed sweet potatoes, Andean corn (like posole), and crunchy corn kernels. Amazing.
