Located in the Collectivo de Chira across from the Mercado de Limoncillo on the prolongacion Tacna just over the bridge in Rimac you will find a fantastic locals restaurant. I first ate here last year on the way to take my step daughters to school for a quick lunch, since then I have been back numerous times.
The Cristo Rey a small open air cebicheria inside the Chira Market with some fantastic food. They serve a different Menu special daily along with fresh cebiche and chicharon de calamar. Everything here is made fresh that day and I have not had a bad meal here. Price for Menu is S./5 soles or about $1.75 USD and changes daily.
Last week I tried their Menu special of Chupe de langostinos which was fantastic! It came with chicharon de calamari and cebiche for S./7 other choices for starters are papa huancaina. The chicharon is great and the cebiche is spiced perfectly.
They open around 11 AM and close late in the afternoon. The Cristo Rey is a great place to eat a tasty meal on a buget and the service is friendly and fast. Enjoy and maybe I’ll see you there!
