Sol del Peru
57 Garrett Road
Upper Darby, PA 19082
This small Upper Darby restaurant does the hearty food of the highlands, and it all ends up piled high on the plate. A skirt steak arrives topped with a fried egg, astride french fries, plantains, rice and salad. (Señor Atkins has no standing here.) The delicious anticucho de pollo is a more manageable portion: a chicken brochette, succulent and spicy, grilled to a crisp.
Must-Try: Anticucho de pollo.
The Deal: This is classic Viejo Latino: unambitious, unadorned Peruvian comfort food out on the Delaware County line. The servings are immense—a typical plate is the skirt steak topped with a fried egg, paired with both French fries and fried bananas, and accompanied by rice and salad.

Love to go to El Balconcito every time I have a chance because it is the best I have tasted on Peruvian food. The Pisco Sour is amazing, you should try it. The Arroz con Saltado, Ceviche mixto, parihuela, arroz con mariscos, inclusive el arroz chaufa. Lo mejor de Philly!!!

El Balconsito I and II, is good.Pollo a la Brasa (call before 11:30am to reserve you Pollo, because after 12:30pm is gone!!), cebiche ok also, jalea is good, parihuela it is one of its best. In my opinion, Chifa Restaurant is not authentic Peruvian food, I did when i Garces fusion is interesting but not enough to compare with Peruvian taste.
Sol del Peru, forget about it, never recommend this Restaurant, sorry but not. I will try to go a new restaurant The Chicken House in newark, Delaware (Red Mill Shopping Center), my friends told me that its good and have a variety of peruvian dishes.

Last time I went in, Sol del Peru was under new ownership, name and menu. New place wasn't great. Sol del Peru sure was. Sorry to see it go.
