A friend had recommended us to eat at El Pallar when we passed by Ica. We stopped for lunch. I ordered the "costillar de cordero" ( lamb ribs) with "picante de pallares verdes" (green lima beans and chili sauce).

Terrible food! The restrooms were so dirty... You can imagine how their kitchen is. There were dogs walking freely inside the restaurant. One of the worst places I've ever been to! You'd better look for another restaurant.

This restaurant is tucked off the main highway that seem a little odd, but the food is impressive. They serve delicious typical Ica dishes, lima bean (pallar) specialties and very large plates...beware!!
