I reviewed La Lucha Sangucheria in a previous post, but I felt that they deserved a second visit, to try their burger (16 soles) and fries (6 soles).
I ordered the burger and an order of fries, and added a fried egg to my burger. The burger had cheese and all the usual fixings, and they asked me which sauces I’d like on it when I was placing my order. Nice personalization.
The order of fries was massive, and I barely dented the towering portion. It could definitely be shared by a few people as a side to their sandwich or burger.
Both items were cooked to order and to perfection. The burger was well made with everything you would expect on a burger, all housed between a freshly baked bun.
The large cut fries were crispy on outside and cooked fully on the inside. Huayro, a golden yellow Peruvian potato, was used to make this exceptionally good batch of French fries.
Their house-made Chicha Morada (6 soles) is refreshing, with a hint of cinnamon and fruit flavours. I always order a second cup to go after finishing one with my meal.
La Lucha continues to impress, and they have been added to the Our Favourites category. They have multiple restaurants throughout Lima, and they’re always busy.
Directly in front of Parque Kennedy you’ll find 2 separate La Lucha locations within the same block, and there is an outside dining area that is dog friendly – one of the few dining areas in the Parque Kennedy area – in front of one of the La Lucha restaurants. Look for the people playing chess in the side alley, with the La Lucha next door to La Republica, and you’ll be able to enjoy a burger and fries if you’re with your dog.
