The top 5 Peruvian restaurants in Toronto
Peruvian restaurants in Toronto are the go-to spots for lomo saltado and pollo a la brasa. Explore a fusion of flavours from Peru’s Indigenous recipes mixed with some international ingredients and wash it down with some boozy pisco, Peru’s national drink.
Here are my picks for the top Peruvian restaurants in Toronto.
This Annex restaurant serves up dishes like lomo saltado, a popular traditional Peruvian beef stir fry dish with onion, tomato and potato that showcases the Chinese influences on this cuisine.
This low-key Roger’s Road spot serves up Chifa – Chinese food made Peruvian-style that’s incredibly popular due to the big Chinese population in Peru. Portions are huge here and you truly get a bang for your buck on favourites like lomo saltado.
The brainchild of the chef behind Byblos and Patria, this eclectic spot on King West is definitely the hot spot for Latin American dining. Full of fun and colourful custom decor, Mira – which means ‘look’ in Spanish –is undoubtedly the hippest place in the city for Peruvian.
This Peruvian- and Japanese-inspired restaurant on Bay in the Financial District has a number locations around the world including Miami and London. The food here represents a fusion and evolution of Peruvian-Japanese fare and is best experienced by choosing from one of several tasting menus.
The North York restaurant on Oakdale Road is dishing out traditional Peruvian cuisine, including meat platters, seafood specialties and a number of tasty vegetarian dishes.
