Howdy! Wanna pet my llama?

This is the door greeter at Machu Picchu (3375 Buford Hwy., 404-320-3226). He stares out the window with his llama.

I had lunch in this Peruvian restaurant a few days ago. It's been around awhile, with a reputation for inconsistency, but I dined very well on beef stewed in a cilantro sauce, served with rice and red beans. The sauce, full of peas, was mild but I spiked it with a shot of fiery aji, made from hot chilies. Generally, I love Peruvian sauces for their creamy texture.

Although my dish was not among them, Machu Picchu serves generously sized lunch specials for about $8.
