FrontGlenn Lindgren: Being surrounded by water, you'd think that Florida would have plenty of fresh seafood available.

Jorge Castillo: But getting good seafood can be a hit or miss proposition.

Glenn Lindgren: So when we find a good seafood place, we return time and time again.

Jorge Castillo: One place we've found that is consistently great is a Peruvian restaurant called El Chalán.

Raúl Musibay: You better be hungry when you go to El Chalán because they serve you a huge plate of food for a very reasonable price.

Jorge Castillo: Corvina or sea bass is a house specialty. It's available in combination on several entrees, all of which include squid and octopus.

Glenn Lindgren: I was never a big fan of squid and octopus, but the sauce they use is so delicious, I ate everything!

Jorge Castillo: You can also say, "Hey guys, hold the squid and octopus."

Glenn Lindgren: My favorites include: Corvina al Chalán (Chalán style sea bass), Corvina de Mariscos, (Sea bass with seafood), Camarones al Ajillo (garlic shrimp) and Pescado a lo Macho (Fish Filet Macho Style).

Raúl Musibay: The non-seafood entrees are very good here. Two combinations: Combinado al Chalán and the Seco de Res Combinado give you a good introduction to Peruvian food.

Jorge Castillo: The Bistec a la Chotillana is a thin cut steak smothered in a delicious sauce with onions and tomatoes.

Glenn Lindgren: El Chalán is definitely worth a trip. It's right across from Tropical Park, one of Miami's favorite parks.

Raúl Musibay: Don't be surprised if you see one or all of us there. We love it.

Glenn Lindgren: If you are in South Beach, check out their sister site: Chalan on the Beach. Same menu, same great food.
