Check out Philadelphia Magazine's review of Vista Peru, one of Old City's new restaurants! 🍽️

    Playing Favorites: Vista Peru Reviewed
    There are people out there who love Peruvian food, and there are people who've never tried it. No one falls in between. Vista Peru is a potato lover's paradise. All Peruvian restaurants are, really. They're places where the potato is taken in strange new directions - used as filling, like bread, as a center-plate star - and respected as the miraculous tuber it is.
