Rincon Del Sabor – 330 N Main St., Brockton 

Rincon Del Sabor serves Peru’s vibrant flavors and colors with its breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu. The restaurant has meals for every hour of the day. 

Need a good morning pick-me-up? Pork cracklings, fried sweet potatoes, and creole sauce on French bread might be worth trying. Or even the thinly sliced beef steak with onion and tomatoes served on a sandwich.

What about the classic dish ceviche? It’s raw fish marinated in fresh lime juice, served with red onion, roasted corn, and sweet potatoes. 

The seafood menu has over a dozen dishes, ranging from Spanish seabass in fish stew to fried fish with yucca rice and a Peruvian-style paella.

Maybe seafood isn’t your vibe; there are plenty of food items, from fried rice and your choice of protein to stewed chicken and grilled steak served with fried rice, French fries, and fried eggs. 

Let’s not forget the desserts of Peruvian bread pudding, tres leches, crème caramel, and roasted milk custard.
