Side StrEATS: Peruvian restaurant Casa Chaskis in West Long Beach

Peruvian gastronomy, for instance, has been heavily influenced by an influx of Asian immigrants to the region over centuries. These influences show through characteristics such as the use of woks while sauteing or stir-frying noodles and rice.
