We ordered picantes de camarones (camarones at this restaurant were whole and big prawns) and they were prepared in a slightly spicy sauce, a cau cau de camarones (a dish with shrimp tails in a tomato, potato sauce with palillo, a spice similar to tumeric and a mint-like herb called hierua buena), 4 Peruvian beers and 2 coffees for S/.116 (around US$30) with tip.
