Piqueo's opens in Bernal

Neighborhood Peruvian comes to Bernal in the shape of Piqueo's, the long awaited replacement to Moki's space opened last Friday.

From the Chronicle review:
The cuisine: The menu is dominated by piqueos, or appetizers, such as beer-battered fried smelt for dipping into huancaina al rocoto limon, a creamy sauce infused with rocoto chile. The same chile adds warm heat to halibut ceviche served with potatoes and Peruvian toasted corn. Queso fresco-stuffed yucca balls are fried until crisp, then served with huancaina sauce. Large plates include the iconic lomito saltado -- beef stir-fried with soy sauce, tomatoes and fried potatoes -- and chuleton Alberto, a grilled pork chop on a bed of savory, chewy barley with smoky adobo sauce.
