yuyo peruano- austin, texas

YuYo Austin

New eateries opening in Austin every day, especially in the fast growing east side.  Just north of downtown, YuYo is one to experience.  Reservations are a must, Happy Hour is exceptional, the Rose Sangria will cure a crave and the ceviche so fresh.  You’ll need more than one serving of fried plantains and do not pass on the Palta Criolla.  When in Austin, do Peru.
