Mi Peru an alternative to conventional Mexican fare

Mi Peru South American Grill in Henderson offers a departure from conventional Mexican cuisine.

The restaurant, in a shopping center near West Horizon Ridge Parkway and South Stephanie Street, serves traditional Peruvian fare. Owner and chef Raymi Mosca, a native of Peru, previously had a restaurant in the capital of Lima.

A popular lunch special, cau cau de mondongo, is tripe (cow stomach) cooked in yellow chili, onions and potatoes and served with rice ($8.95).

Each order comes with a small plate of crunchy, roasted corn and spicy green sauce and a bowl of vegetable and noodle soup.

Other popular plates include the house special chicharrones ($14.95), pork chunks served with yams and salsa, and lomo saltado ($16.95), sauteed strips of beef with tomatoes and onions and served with French fries and rice.
