Flor de Mayo

484 Amsterdam Ave. (b/w 80th & 81st)

People come to eat, not so much dine, at Flor de Mayo. When your order comes to the table, you’ll find yourself gulping it all down, too. The staff is attentive – honest and even hands-on – they’ll point you to the best dishes on the menu (and firmly dissuade you from others). The Chino-Latino restaurant doesn’t do fusion, but rather, executes either cuisine excellently. Go for the Peruvian specialties. Start with the Ceviche de Pescado, soaked in lime and crowned with rings of red onions. The Papas Arequipeña, a spicy, creamy potato and egg appetizer, is interesting at first; opt for some spring rolls instead. The Tallarin Verde with Camarones al Ajillo, pasta coated in Peruvian pesto and topped with meaty shrimp doused liberally with garlic, is guaranteed to become your new food craving. Your eyes will be bigger than your stomach – but your stomach will acquiesce – when it comes to the Lomo Saltado, stir-fried beef with tomatoes, onions and fries over rice, a nod to Peruvian Chinese food. You’ll wish you were leaving with leftovers – but, despite the heaping portions, you won’t be.
