Peruvian Taste Opens in Charlestown

A new dining spot that features Peruvian food has come to a hidden little corner of Charlestown.

According to a post from Eater Boston, Peruvian Taste is now open on Arlington Avenue, taking over the space that had been home to the Charlestown Cafe. The new eatery--which is tucked away on a side street just north of Sullivan Square--offers such items as aguadito (Peruvian chicken soup), lomo saltado (steak with tomatoes and onions), causa rellena de pollo (chicken and potatoes), chicharron de pescado (deep-fried fish), arroz con pollo (chicken and rice), and more, including Peruvian-style Chinese food and a variety of breakfast dishes.

The address for Peruvian Taste is 78 Arlington Avenue, Charlestown, MA, 02129. Its website can be found at
