La Canta Rana in Barranco

La Canta Rana
Pasaje Génova 101

Behind the police station, la Comisarí­a de Barranco, at the 500 block of Avenida Grau, entering via Colina, as you go towards the sea.

Thanks Mario for reminding me aboutLa Canta Rana.

Owned by Vicente Furgiuele, an Argentine who has lived in Peru for years,La Canta Rana, The Singing Frog, has been an institution in Barranco for over 20 years.

Among their signature dishes: calamari in a prawn and cheese sauce, seafood tacu tacu, grilled young octopus, shrimp or fish in garlic sauce, and different types of ceviches, among other seafood dishes.

They also serve pasta and steak.

Aside from the excellence of their food, there is a very friendly atmosphere at this restaurant.

It's a very good place to watch Argentina play.

Simply, the best cebiche in Lima. And for sea urchin lovers "al natural" with a side order of "leche de tigre" (tiger's milk) make sure your lover is close by! ha ha
