Some people will tell you nothing good can be found in a North Dallas strip shopping center. El Fogon stands as proof those people have no idea what they are talking about. The bland little storefront houses a kitchen turning out home-style Peruvian and Ecuadorian favorites. That means you'll find curiosities such as boiled potatoes in a frothy sauce with a fried egg on top, as well as hearty meat dishes. Yes, they include some Tex-Mex (surprising margaritas) for the less adventurous. The rest of their menu, however, is like a peek into the soul of South America.
