Los Cabos II

1525 Champa St. Denver, CO 80202 | Downtown Denver | 303-595-3232

Location Description:

Peruvian food is some of the strangest, most delicious stuff in the world, a mish-mash of centuries of cultural influences thrown together onto one plate. Spanish conquistadors, Arabs and Moors, explorers bringing spices from India, Italian cartographers, historic Creoles, African slaves and Asian immigrants - they've all added a little to the rich history of Peruvian cookery, and you can taste all of that (or most of it, anyway) at Francesca Ruiz's friendly, unassuming Los Cabos. You can occasionally catch soccer on the three televisions, and the display of native art (don't missed the stuffed llama) might make you feel as though you're imbibing in some sort of museum or cultural center instead of a treasure trove tucked behind an unassuming LoDo storefront.
