La Carreta is a successful Peruvian restaurant located in my home town Orem, Utah. My husband and I found a groupon and we decided to try it out. The food was so delicious and the owners so loving, I just had to highlight them for my blog. Here’s a link to their website.
Alejandra is a women full of hugs and kisses. She truly treats all of her customers as if they were her own children. She is the heart and soul of the business. She does what she does because she loves it, she doesn’t care much about the money. She always greets me with a kiss and is sure to ask how I’ve been, even though I had just met her. Even though she was very busy, she was extremely willing to meet with me for this blog.
Since La Carreta is a family run business, sometimes on the weekends, Alejandra’s grand kids come in on their own free will to help out. They eagerly clear plates and deliver salsa to the corresponding tables.
Their dishes are composed with a french fry or rice base, then you choose what goes on top. Their sauces are not oily but still very juicy. I especially loved their bean sauce I got with my chicken and vegetables.
Make sure to go hungry in stomach and spirit, because Alejandra and will fill you up.
