From Lima, with love

Sample the broad diversity of Peruvian cuisine or stick to familiar Tex-Mex at this dual menu eatery.


Restaurant Reviews

Doug Hill
Mamaveca Mexican Restaurant
2551 Hemphill Dr., Norman
573-4003

What worked:
a fine selection of well-presented Peruvian and Tex-Mex dishes.
What needs work:
We were served only bland red salsa, but there’s a spicy green version, too. It would improve the dining experience to offer both.
Tip(s):
It’s a Mexican restaurant with Peruvian soul.

Greg Horton
Fall is the best season for wine because warm days mean whites and bubbles, and the cooler evenings beg for big reds that have been avoided all summer.
