Great family-run restaurant just up an alleyway from Plaza de Armas. Absolutely delicious lomo saltado and aji de gallina chicken. The owner's spicy sauce is an excellent compliment as well. Try it!

We were looking for someplace that offered traditional Peruvian dishes and Sumaqcha fit the bill perfectly. Our meals were excellent, the restaurant cozy, the owner/server very friendly and helpful. We only regret not having time to return for another meal.
