If you want to eat well and cheaply do not miss Chan Chan, a specialist in Peruvian cuisine. The restaurant is named after the Chan Chan ruins near Trujilo in Northern Peru, the largest pre-Colombian city in South America and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the district of Monserrat this restaurant is highly recommended for those looking to taste delicious dishes of Peruvian cuisine at affordable prices. We recommend the varied ceviches, typical Peruvian food; and and for dessert, the delightful suspiro limeño.
