Lomo Saltado

I love Peruvian food. But since we are new friends, we are still exploring what I can eat in Peruvian cuisine. 

When I moved to the Bay area, I was in charge of looking for our new apartment. I went to see several places but an apartment had a huge extra point: there was a Peruvian restaurant!! We are now in a small town, but having a Peruvian restaurant and Peruvian grocery, which I haven’t had a chance to go yet, was so rare and I immediately wanted to live in the town. 

Every time I go out to eat Peruvian food, I am excited to see what will be our new food, but mysteriously, we always order Lomo Saltado because it has our favorite food: fries! At first, I felt a little weird to put french fries on stir-fried food, but actually it was so good and it won’t turn down my excitement. Can I make it on my own…? Of course!!
