We were searching for a new place for our "Friday dinner with friends". Searching on tripadvisor I saw that Machu Picchu was rated in first place in Raleigh, so we decided to give it a try.
We made a reservation in the phone and got there on-time, so no need for waiting for a table what is a rarity on a Friday evening.
The restaurant appearance is very good. Our waiter was the owner himself and we also met the cook. They were all very friendly and gave us a very good impression.
Since we didn't know much about Peruvian food, we asked him for some recommendation and we finally decided to follow it. The name of the dish we had is the Jalea (me and my wife actually shared the large portion option for 2). If you like seafood, you will not be disappointed with this dish because you will find all sorts of it in one single dish, and they were all very well prepared and tasty. The size of the dish is also very generous (we could hardly finish it).
Our friends ate other dishes and they said they also liked them.
We intend to go back to this place and explore other dishes we saw people eating, and they all looked very good. The spices used in Peruvian cousine are somewhat different from what we are used to, what makes this place even more exciting for us (finally something different in town).
