Report: 97% of White Customers Will Order The Lomo Saltado

A report by me, looking around Ceviche 105 right now, confirms that 97% of white diners in Peruvian restaurants will order the Lomo Saltado.

"Easy access to foreign flavors is just one of the reasons why I love Miami," said 33-year-old architect David Johnson as he confidently ordered his meal of steak, french fries and rice after feigning interest in the restaurant's many authentic Peruvian specials.

"Oh, I had octopus last night," he lied to the waitress. "I'll have the lomo saltado, por favor."

The Plantain spoke to Javier Ortiz-Saperstein-Smith, a recently laid off employee with Miami-Dade County's economic development office, who confirmed that together with Cuban shredded beef staple Vaca Frita, the Lomo Saltado make up roughly 65% of Miami-Dade County's total hospitality revenue.

"White guys really love beef, rice, and french fries," said Mr. Ortiz-Saperstein-Smith, who noted that he personally believes that mixing rice and french fries is too starch heavy. He isn't wrong.
