Juanita’s Cafe pretty much only makes Peruvian sandwiches, and they’re really good. Each one comes on a giant, flat roll that’s soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside, and you also get your choice of regular fries, sweet potato fries, or salad. Most of the sandwiches involve large chunks of meat, like the Chicharon, which has crispy pork shoulder, sweet potato mash, and a spicy salsa. Come with your family or a big group, try some chicha morada (a sweet Peruvian purple corn drink), and sit outside on the patio when the weather is nice.
