Flor De Mayo
Posted by Linna on 11/19/2010
I went here with a group of friends on a Friday night a few weeks ago, and it was pretty packed, so there was a little bit of a wait. But it was delicious!!! I got the lomo saltado, as did 3 of my other friends and it was heaps of food, for a great price. There is no doubt that two of us could have split the one dish, but it was so tasty! One of my friends got the baked chicken which she gobbled down like no other. It's a ton of good food for very good price! I'll def make the trek back here :)

I have had mixed experience with delivery from Flor De Mayo before but thought I'd give them another shot. After 40min without receiving my delivery order I gave a call and was told my order was on it's way. 20min later, I still didn't have my food. When I called back, all I got was an earful of excuses. I understand restaurants get busy, however, not giving any warning that your food will take over an hour to be delivered is unacceptable and without even an apology. If you want to actually eat, I suggest ordering from a different place.

Eggrolls crust is thick as a slice of old bread, soups carry canned mushrooms. Nothing seems remotely fresh as well as sauces are totally bland.

The food is not that good. The Chinese food is actually pretty bad. The Peruvian food - which is a much smaller menu than the Chinese - is pretty good, but not incredible. The roasted chicken that is so highly touted was actually a bit dry and didn't have that much flavor - I was thoroughly underwhelmed. The only dish I had that was very good and would consider ordering again is the Aji de Gallina. The decor is very awkward - caught somewhere in between a divey diner and a decent sit-down restaurant. The service is inconsistent and mostly devoid of any personality. It's reasonably priced, so it's not a regrettable experience, but it's not exactly a bargain either. And the prices seem to be gradually going up over time. In this case, reality doesn't match the hype.

I heard the hype over this restaurant and was really looking forward to trying it. I'd been craving wonton soup for a while so I ordered that first, it tasted like bland dumplings in water, there were no wontons. IDK what it was but it wasn't wonton soup. For my entree I got "Shrimp in Deviled Sauce" which was alright.. pretty good, no complaints. I do like that they clean their shrimp out, many places do not. There was also shrimp in my special fried rice which they were nice enough to leave the ham out of on request. I was told by a fellow diner that I must order it, that it's amazing.. but it was just okay. Not good enough for me to wrap up the leftovers.

This place had pretty good reviews but I really don't see why. It claims to be a "Peruvian/Chinese" restaurant but it really is just a Chinese restaurant with the menu items listed in Spanish. I ordered the "Peruvian" Lomo Saltado which was basically beef fried rice. The fried plantanes that we ordered were virtually tasteless and were supposed to be the "crispy" variety, but came out soft and chewey. For some reason, there was a was a line of people waiting the be seated the whole time we were eating, but the food was very mediocre. I don't understand the appeal. It was an alright value and the service was decent, but the food was disappointed which is all that matters.
