Last Thursday we had a team lunch at work and picked up food from Mamita. It's a peruvian place sandwiched between the BMW dealer and the Mercedes dealer. Talk about bringing down the property values.

I had Pescado a lo macho. Fried fish filet topped with sauteed shrimp, squid and octopus, served with rice. It's similar in seasoning to the saltado de mariscos. It had the onions and the tomatoes and the soy sauce based sauce, except for one difference, instead of french fries, you use breaded fish filet. Point for cake right there. I like the french fries and all, but come on, it's fish and about the same price as the saltado. At about $10.95 it's not a cheap lunch, but it's good.

i LOVE mamita's! if you're sharing between at least 2 people, try the seafood chowder (i think it's called chupa de mariscos) for a rich, hearty, and quite satisfying change. it's got a bounty of seafood (fish, squid, shrimp, octopus, crab), rice, and an egg in a milky, slightly tomato-tinged broth. perfect for sharing along w/ some saltado and/or ceviche.

I forgot to mention, the octopus had a weird texture. At first I thought they put chicken in the mix, but upon closer inspection, the "chicken" had suckers on it and the skin was purplish. It had the taste and texture of chicken thighs. Bonus.
