Located in Lince is La Esquina del Sabor (The Corner of Flavour) an inexpensive restaurant located on the corner of the large fruit and meat market called Mercado Lobatón #1 -Lince.
This small restaurant features an assortment of daily specials and a fixed menu – the daily specials each come with a soup as an appetizer and chicha water (made from purple corn).
When I went they had five or six different stews as entrees available, which I was able to see in their steam table and choose; I had the cau-cau, which was a rooster and potatoes stew in a yellow sauce with a side of rice.
The meal, at 9 soles, was a perfect lunch while I was on the go. It wasn’t an enormous portion like you’d get at a chifa restaurant, which was good, since I didn’t want to be bloated for the rest of the afternoon.
