Mi Peru

Posted by DID 15 Jul 2014 4 Comments

In the heat of the summer, if it was possible to exist solely on ceviche I would. So when Mi Peru opened, I was pumped about the first Peruvian restaurant in Durham to not just carry the albeit great classic rotisserie chicken, but also classic Peruvian ceviche.

A family venture, Peruvian couple Edwin Vergaray and Gladis Muñoz with the help of their daughter opened Mi Peru just behind the Target shopping center and across from G2B.

We stopped in on a Saturday night and tried the Chorlos a la chalaca (green lipped mussels mixed with tomatoes, onions, corn and lime juice ($7.99) and the Ceviche Mixto (shrimp, calamari, bay scallops, mussels, octopus, tilapia in lime served with corn and sweet potatoes ($15.99). Fresh and bright, the ceviche mixto was the perfect summer dish.


Bonus, the plantains, classic fried corn nibbles (canchita) and the ubiquitous two-litters of Inca Cola of all Peruvian restaurants serve.

    Had a great lunch last week. Lunch special 7.99. Soup, choice of 3 entrees, and two sides. Homemade beef, been, and barley soup. Rich, savory, and satisfying. !/4 delicious moist savory roto chicken, great frejoles, and so-so yucca. Slightly sweet purple corn drink with pleasant spices. A great place! Lots of attractive entrees for dinner. $-$$. 3.5 stars at least. Daughter speaks native English. Pleasant service. Mom cooks great food. I look forward to learning more about this unique Peruvian cuisine.
