Bistro Peru Sanford (Vegan Guide)
Bistro Peru is an authentic Peruvian restaurant serving traditional and fusion dishes within the space of Hops and Wops Brewing Company in Historic Downtown Sanford.
My husband and I had the pleasure of visiting Peru last summer and enjoyed so many veganized traditional Peruvian dishes and were thrilled to find out that Bistro Peru is very accommodating when it comes to veganizing dishes.
Although there are no vegan-as-is dishes on their menu, if you tell them you are vegan they will work with you to find a delicious dish that will work with your preferences!
