Translated as "The Fine Fishhook," this is a classic Peruvian cevicheria, and the onion-laced ceviche mixto is a wonder of tart, fresh, marinated seafood, including clams, mussels, shrimp, squid, and corvine-the firm-fleshed national fish of Peru. Equally good is pulpo al olivio: a dense heap of octopus tentacles dressed with a purplish olive mayo. Seafood excels at this comfortable redoubt under the J tracks, but you can also find Andean delicacies as well, including papas a la Huancaina and papas a la Ocopa (respectively, boiled potatoes with cheese and peanut sauces). Don't miss the goat shank swimming in cilantro gravy.
