Miraflores Peruvian Express is a Peruvian restaurant in Westminster. It’s unapologetically Peruvian and outstanding. With its small kitchen space, it offers a limited menu, so you can expect those dishes to be those that have penetrated OC’s palate: awesome pollo à la brasa, puckering ceviches, spreads of tallarín that resemble the tastiest mounds of noodles since a trip through Little Italy. Even better are rarities such as anticuchos (skewers of beef heart as delicate as tongue) and aguadito de pollo, a chicken soup turned nearly emerald thanks to the spicy presence of ají; the $5 bowl is large enough to feed three.
