Mexican fare definitely takes center stage in this town, but luckily that's not all we have to offer when it comes to south-of-the-border cuisines. Case in point: Tumi Fine Peruvian Cuisine in Chandler, a cozy little spot where chef and owner Oscar Graham gives the Valley a taste of South America.

The ceviche, as you might imagine, is quite good. If you're a fan of bright, citrusy flavors and raw fish, then it's definitely a must-try dish. But for those who want to branch out and explore more of the restaurant's menu, try the Mariscos con Arroz.

If you've ever eaten Spanish paella, then this dish should seem familiar. It combines seafood, rice, and chile peppers to make a dish that's generous in portion size as well as in flavor. The giant platter of rice will be littered with pieces of lobster, scallops, shrimps, and mussels and sprinkled with a layer of Parmesan cheese. Just remember to bring a friend, as a single order can easily satisfy two hungry diners.
