Question: When's the last time you went out for Peruvian food? That's what we thought. This tasty South American fare may not be as widely available as say, Italian or Mexican, but we'd venture to guess that there's a cozy BYOB restaurant tucked away in your city somewhere — perhaps you've already found it.
While it's fun to try a cuisine you don't eat on a regular basis, sometimes navigating the menu can be a bit confusing. So, if "chupe" means nothing to you, you're not alone. To help you out (and maybe, even impress a dining companion), we've got six gorgeous snaps of Peruvian dishes you need to know. If you happen to live in Chicago, you can try them out at the brand-new restaurant Tanta in River North (just check out these amazing Yelp reviews!). Sorry, it's not BYO — but you can get a mean pisco punch.
