About our Family
When Esperanza Luzcando came from Peru in June 2011 for her son's graduation, she fell in love with Arizona. In December 2011, Esperanza and her husband, José Ramírez Sánchez, decided to move to Arizona with her family and open a business.
The idea of opening a restaurant was born and El Chullo Peruvian Restaurant was inaugurated in 2014.
"When we decided to open our restaurant, we always had in mind to offer traditional food with different recipes learned throughout our lives, as served at our home" says Jose Ramirez Sanchez.
"We are very happy that Peruvian food is becoming more widely known worldwide. And we always invite all our customers to visit our beautiful country and to learn about our culture and above all enjoy our delicious cuisine" says Esperanza Luzcando.
What is "Chullo"?
"Chullo" is a peruvian ancestral garment symbol of the andean culture made to protect themselves from the extreme cold in the Andean high places. In these towns, they fulfill a purpose, which is to identify the characters of the andean population. Depending on the place where they are made, colors, figures, motives and shapes are in harmony with the traditions and local uses.
