Happy Peruvian Independence Day! Thankfully, Chicago is home to an assortment of Peruvian restaurants where you can celebrate culinarily. One of our favorite places to get Peruvian in Chicago is Taste of Peru. ToP is located in an unassuming stripmall storefront on North Clark and despite the small size of the restaurant, the menu is quite extensive. The restaurant has an expensive selection of seafood, including a few varieties of M’s favorite citrusy seafood salad – ceviche. For entrees- The aji de gallina ($11) – shredded chicken in walnut sauce and Lomo Saltado – Peruvian rib-eye ($11) are both excellent, and there is even live music on weekends.
