Last night I took up your advice and ate dinner at Machu Picchu on Buford Highway. I had actually tried to eat there in the past, but could never find where it was located. So, for those of us with even less directionality than Crapquest, Machu Picchu is in the Publix shopping plaza behind Wendyís.
What stood out the most at Machu Picchu is their service. Since I had never tried Peruvian cuisine, and donít even really know where Peru is, I needed some help from the staff. They brought me out a booklet and showed me pictures of several entrees on the menu. Kindía like eating at Dennyís!
For a starter I tried the white fish ceviche, which cooks the fish in an acidic marinate such as lemon and limejuices. This was not my favorite part of the meal, but my dining partner thought it was good. Normally ceviche is served cold, but at Machu Picchu it was slightly warm which I thought was strange. Perhaps it is the Peruvian way to prepare ceviche?
As an entrÈe I had the mixed seafood on rice, which was an enormous assortment of marinated squid, mussels, and shrimp. I think it was #47 on the menu, if youíre curious. The seafood was cooked to perfection and had a buttery flavor that kept me munching until I was very full. Unfortunately I didnít make it to dessert, but thereís always next time.
The manager came over towards the end of our meal and gave me a little handcrafted pin made in Peru. What a sweet ending to a wonderful meal. I highly recommend this restaurant to you.
