Palacio del Sancochado - Restaurant Lima - Peru

The Palacio del Sancochado is not just a restaurant. A uniquely limeña local legend for over 30 years, it relies on word of mouth and little else. Owner Juan Ruggiero's creative coup offers up more than lunch on its menu – it has to, since only lunch is served and only one plate offered. He has converted his elegant 75-year-old childhood home into a virtual temple of time past, featuring everything from first-model jukeboxes to tintypes and just about anything uniquely obsolete. The total effect is intoxicating. Juan's local clientele, stone–soup like, has made its own donations. The food? The one-entrée-only special is a proudly Peruvian platter of potatoes, yams, yucca, carrots, cabbage, garbanzos, rice, creole sauce and a half-kilo of beef. You can forget about eating anything else the day you dine there. Open Monday-Friday noon-5 p.m.
