Tumi Fine Peruvian Cuisine

2160 N. Alma School Road, 116 Chandler, AZ 85224 | Chandler | 480-821-1717

Location Description:

This tiny, no-frills spot of mostly gratifying traditional Peruvian cuisine in Chandler comes courtesy of chef-owner Oscar Graham, who was born and raised in Lima. Like any good Peruvian chef worth his sea salt, Graham makes an outstanding ceviche, but there are other good dishes as well. Start with a selection of unique appetizers featuring ingredients like boiled potatoes, Peruvian corn on the cob, and grilled pieces of beef heart, then move on to entrees like spicy, seafood-laced arroz con mariscos (the Peruvian version of paella); the beefy stir-fry lomo saltado; and Graham’s excellent pollo a la brasa, well-herbed Peruvian grilled chicken made with over twenty ingredients.
