Anticuchos like beef-heart skewers are a revered street-food snack for Limeños, and Tia Grimanesa sizzles up some of the tastiest in the city. Starting out with a humble food cart, her succulent garlic-, onion- and vinegar-marinated meaty lollipops were so popular, she was able to open a brick-and-mortar spot. Grimanesa devotees anxiously await opening time—5 p.m.—to snap up a portion, teamed with boiled potatoes perfect for mopping up excess juices. It's usually standing room only, so prepare to lick those fingers clean.
