El Rincón Que No Conoces

363 Bernardo Alcedo
Alt. cuadra 20 de Petit Thouars
Lima, Peru
TEL: 51-1-471-2171

A self-made Lima legend, chef Teresa Izquierdo Gonzáles opened this restaurant in 1978 to serve classic, home-cooked Peruvian and Creole dishes. Contrary to its name, which translates to "the corner place that no one knows," this Lince District eatery has become a favorite for classic Peruvian dishes—like the tacu-tacu (beans and rice) and the causa (layers of mashed potatoes, avocado, and chicken or tuna). The white building is smartly designed with shrubbery outside, while inside, the casual dining room has homey yellow walls, brick-like tiling and simple wooden furniture.

Insider Tip:

During the Wednesday lunch buffet, which is served in large earthenware pots, you can sample all the best-known Creole dishes in one meal.
