Amar

The ceviche at Amar, in El Paso.

Amar means “to love,” and the family behind this restaurant lovingly merge the flavors of Peru and Mexico on their adventurous menu. Begin your journey with the Ceviche Amar: mussels, octopus, shrimp, and mahimahi in leche de tigre decorated with crispy calamari. Continue with the lomo saltado, chunks of beef tenderloin nestled among french fries and sauteed tomatoes and peppers. Or the empanadas de maiz, which come loaded with either succulent shrimp or fresh spinach. Desserts are spectacular; consider the guava cheesecake or an alfajor filled with cajeta. The fabulous patio will make you feel like you are on vacation.
