Youll find spaghetti and insalata caprese on El Chalans menu, but its the papas a la huancaina, carapulcra, and chicha youll want to order. This friendly, bare-bones El Sobrante restaurant serves gigantic portions of homey Peruvian (and Italian) food. The Peruvians innate genius with potatoes hey, they invented em shows up in just about every dish, including the top-notch ceviches. Despite their Spanish and Quechua names, most of the comfort-food dishes would make your Irish grandmother feel right at home.
