Meet the Business Owner...

Elizabeth Mostacero

Head Chef and Business Owner

  Elizabeth Mostacero is a Peruvian-born chef, raised in the urban setting of Peru until the 90s, when she moved to the United States. She has studied as an event planner and business owner here in the United States, as well as trained with fellow chefs in Lima.

Elizabeth believes in taking out the "fusion" in some of Peru's most classic meals. Her events and food bring back a sense of nostalgia for those who've had a similar upbringing. For those new to South American flavors, it's an exciting new journey and also a comfortable home-cooked meal. 


 We specialize in traditional and authentic Peruvian food that can make you feel as though you're at home enjoying a warm and delicious meal filled with love! Our recipes have been passed down for generations and remain unchanged. Our food and chicha morada are always freshly made using true Peruvian products, this is what makes our food authentic. Come visit our restaurant or book a private event to experience a culinary tour of Peru in the heart of San Diego.
