Manjares Dulces Peruanos. Av. Aviación 3364. San Borja. Lima

A craving for a rich, frothy cappuccino led me to this dulceria in San Borja, in the thicket of Chifa (Peruvian-style Chinese food) restaurants. Nowhere else in Lima is there such an abundance of Asian joints, and this pastry specialist sticks out somewhat.
The cappuccino, at a whopping 9 soles ($3) was well worth it, even if it was sweetened with condensed milk (only acceptable in Vietnamese cà phê sữa Đá) and I was tempted to eat the entire slice of torta de chocolate that I then wisely had boxed and delivered home to Mrs. Delusionaryculinary.
All their cakes and desserts look very good, and they seem to specialise in fresh fruit blends too. Service is very friendly and the cashier is incredibly playful and smiley. The muzak is tolerable and toilet facilities incredibly clean.
