LIMA | Tio Mario is a family business, a few steps from the Bridge of Sighs in Lima’s Barranco District. The restaurant specialises in anticuchos (Quechua for “cut stew meat”) a popular Peruvian street food. Anticuchos can be cut from any type of meat, however it is predominately beef hearts and other types of offal that are used.

Don’t let the idea of offal scare you – the meat is delicately marinated in lime juice, vinegar, and spices like ají pepper, garlic, and cumin and then grilled. The result is flavourful, tender, juicy meat. The picarones (a type of pumpkin and sweet potato doughnut) are also highly recommended.

A word of warning, Tio Mario does not take reservations and can get very busy during peak times – we recommend visiting between 5:00pm and 7:00pm, before the dinner rush begins.

Tio Mario is admittedly quite touristy, but don’t let this dissuade you from visiting – the food is reasonably priced and of a consistently high quality.
