Description: The love of family, friends and great food is a tradition for the Egoavils.Having relocated to the United States from Peru in 1992, they sought the opportunities their new home offered. They have now realized their family dream of owning and operating their own restaurant. El Tule was previously the home of another restaurant offering Mexican fare. The Egoavil Family has infused the eatery with a vibe all its own. El-Tule’s Mexican-Latin fusion includes traditional Mexican offerings as well as the addition of Peruvian menu items. Peruvian food has been gaining momentum among foodies across the nation, and prior to El Tule was extremely hard to find in the Delaware Valley. El Tule offers both indoor and outdoor dining. Guests may bring their own wine or alcohol of choice. Our patio is dog friendly.Subpages

“Excellent Food Served With Pride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

We are first timers to El Tule. We took advantage of the pre fix dinner selection during restaurant week (March 17-22) and are now raving fans! The quinoa salad and ceviche were absolutely delicious. The owner made sure we understood every selection on the menu. The foods authenticity and chef’s pride came out in every dish. Service was excellent and there was a genuine good vibe about the place. Can’t wait to go back.

“Walked into warmly decorated space and ate excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

We started with the Peruvian sampler plate, a feast of the eyes as well as the tummy. Since potatoes come from Peru they Are incorporated in almost every dish, Lovely different textures and flavors of the different types of potatoes as well as Yucca. The small accompanying salad, pickled onions with pickled radish and jalapeno was an excellent complement to the rest of the dish as well as the avocado, cool creamy delicious. The other two dishes that we got, chaufa vegetarian-a quinoa and vegetable dish-savory seasoning and tasty. Chicharron, a traditional pork dish was Succulent nice tender pieces of pork probably from the shoulder cut. Large portions and while well-prepared I probably will I will never get it again because well it is pork, and not on my cardiac diet. On my next visit I plan to get the seafood cerviche and other delights.

“Authentic fresh Latin American food in central NJ!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Had an excellent lunch experience at El Tule this week. Ceviche was fresh and delicious! Quinoa soup was also very tasty. The spicy pork tacos weren't very spicy but had good flavor. The side of beans clearly were made from scratch (which isn't always the case in many Mexican restaurants at this price point). So many more things to try on the menu! Our server was great and very helpful in explaining the less familiar Peruvian dishes. We'll be back again soon.

“I wanted Nachos....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

I was in Lambertville and really in the mood for nachos. I was so pleased with this restaurant and the blend of Mexican and Peruvian food. The Mexican Hot Chocolate was great, the nachos were excellent and both our lunches were fresh and delicious. The 3 salsas were also yummy! Looking forward to a dinner shortly.
