Stumbled across this place by searching our GPS for SA food places. It's small the staff are friendly and they have a small amount of bakery goods for sale. No liquor license so no Pisco sour. We ordered a number of appetizers: yuca fritters, side of sweet sliced sweet potatoes, fried yummy plantain, and the entree of pescado a lo... More

Visiting San Diego and decided to try a new restaurant. We didn't want to drive too far from our son's home in Pacific Beach. Found the Latin Chef here on Trip Advisor. We were definitely not disappointed. Fresh, tastes food. Reasonable prices and friendly service. A memorable meal. Can't wait for our next trip so we can visit it again.... More

Make sure to call them before going there to see if they actually have there the things written on the menu. Went there yesterday, I was soooo looking forward to have some coxinhas and my friend wanted to try their kibes, and they didn't have any left! Seriously? Very disappointing. We left the place empty stomach, not a nice first... More

We love the Peruvian food here. Each time we are in town we have to go here at least once. The aji de gallina, lomo saltado and pescado a lo macho are all delicious. Also save room for lucuma ice cream. Be adventurous and give it a try you'll like it.
