A big, fancy expensive shopping mall. Might as well stay in the US as to go here. Very nice inside, but not really "Peruvian".

It´s located on Mercaderes, a street closed to traffic that ends at the Plaza de Armas.
This street has a starbucks, burger king, kfc, and pizza hut! I was so surprised to see it!
We went to Ekeko just for the public bathroom, which was always hard to find in Peru.

I have eaten here 2 or 3 times, and the second time got REALLY sick. It was either the mayonnaise or unwashed spinach, so be careful what you order. Although it's good, it's way over priced. It makes Capprichios look cheap and that used to be one of the most expensive places in town to eat!
