Mixtura Peruvian Restaurant is having an identity crisis. The Peruvian restaurant is located a block south of Miracle Mile in the space that once housed another Latin eatery, La Cofradia. The sign above the entrance still bears the former resident's name. The website lives online under And the heavy, leather-bound menu covers are etched with the same name. At the end of each meal, a check arrives with La Cofradia printed across the top. As it turns out, Mixtura has held onto the La Cofradia name in some instances, but not what earned it those accolades. There are plenty of other Peruvian restaurants in Miami offering authentic fare at lower prices. You won't get the modern dining room or the fabricated Spanish experience of Coral Gables, but you might receive a better meal. Read the full review.
