Tumi was my “pick”. I have been several times. I had first-timers with me and everyone was surprised/impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. All selections were happily explained. The size of the meals transformed the table into a virtual feast. I would say some of the entrees could easily feed two people. I had a good Peruvian beer- can’t remember name, but made a mental note to order the passion fruit and tequila sour in the future. Perhaps come back on the weekend when they have entertainment. One dining companion said it was the best yucca she ever had. I thought the chicken someone else had was extremely flavorful sautéed with fresh tomatoes and onions. Bread was served warm- always a nice touch. The donuts were a big hit. Prices extremely reasonable- considerably huge portions.

If you are looking for simple dining with authentic Peruvian food, then Tumi is your place. Great prices for the quality and portions, and they pretty much have something on their menu for everyone.

I visited for lunch. There was a sign out front announcing that they would have live music that evening. I wish I would have known in advance because I would have liked to have experienced the restaurant when there was music. It was a quiet afternoon, with a few other tables that had families sitting at them. I was greeted as soon as I came through the door and the smiling waiter placed me at a table along the center wall, directly next to an unplugged fan/heater tower. The interior is nicely decorated in a way that definitely tells you that you are in a Peruvian restaurant, but was not too kitschy. The walls are made to look like a courtyard in a colonial Peruvian village, and there are the obligatory depictions of Tumi’s on the wall, very important, the bathroom is clean. I was there in the fall, and there were autumn leaves decorating the sink and a vase of flowers in fall colors on the vanity table. I assumed they change this décor for the seasons, which is a nice touch, and an unexpected attention to detail. When my companion arrived, she noticed the fan tower next to me and asked if it bothered me. I moved it over away from me. There were no lunch specials, so I decided to order several appetizers so I could get a taste of some of the restaurant’s variety. Many of the items found in the entrée section are also offered in some form as an appetizer. I ordered the papa a la huancaina and found the yellow sauce to lack flavor. The best spicy flavor came from the verde sauce they give you with your bread. I’m glad that the servers left the sauce on the table to put on the other items, because we ordered our dishes spicy, but were not served spicy. We also ordered the tiradito pescado and the Tumi Trio. I love to try tiradito wherever it is served. My introduction to Peruvian food was in a high-end restaurant, where they serve the tiradito like a fish carpaccio, very thinly sliced. Tumi serves more basic food, so the tiradito is served as fish strips. It is presented with a steak knife, but it was marinated well, so I could cut it with the fork. The quality of the fish, I want to reiterate, was excellent. I mixed some of the verde sauce with the fish and liked it. The Tumi Trio includes the beef hearts, the yucca chunks and the mussels. I thought the anticuchos could have also used more seasoning than just salt and were a little tough in texture. The choros were my favorite. The topping was very fresh and the mussels were cooked well. The lucuma ice cream is, first of all, enourmous, I could not believe the portion size. It is also creamy, very delicious and was a great meal topper. I had a pleasant lunch and I think it is a nice restaurant. It is not the type of place for which I would make a special trip, but it is a nice addition to the neighborhood it is in and I would recommend it as a nice spot for Peruvian food served fresh. I don’t think there are many Peruvian restaurants in the area, so it is a good place for those who are curious about Peruvian food.
