Manolo is an old fashioned Lima caféteria (coffee shop)
and churreria in the heart of Miraflores. It’s an institution,
founded in 1968 and is a comforting favorite of families of all
ages. You see grandparents who may have met there, and new families
bringing their kids. There’s a huge menu of sandwiches, pastas,
seafood, and desserts
The portions are big, the crema volteada (“turned over” cream, like
a flan) nearly covered the plate. The meals are family sized because
this is a family place. While there are tourists here, there are
plenty of ordinary people enjoying an old favorite as well.
But really there’s one big reason to come to Manolo: the churros. You
have two varieties, filled (relleno) or unfilled, and three flavours
of filled, chocolate, vanilla, or dulce de leche. Six plain churros
or one filled churro for 6 soles. Less than 2 US dollars.
