COMMERCIAL RESTAURANT EQUIPMENT?

Postby Philipc4u59 » Wed Aug 28, 2013 8:26 am

GM all expats,

I am at a "loss" to where to go in Lima for commercial restaurant equipment - especially a molodera (coffee grinder). With a population of some 8 million people; someone or some area of Lima must specialize in this.

A used unit that can grind a minimum of 250 g per use - would be OK; normally the commercial grinders (in US)do 3 pounds min. - for restaurant usage; also OK.

Thanks for your help; Mercadolibre doesn't have the quality machine that I need,
Philip :roll:

Have a look in Makro, there is a large selection of restaurant equipment.
If you need bigger tools, go to the end of Av Circunvalacion. That is a very rough neighbourhood, but there you find all the big kitchen / shop / industrial tools.

Good suggestions!!!
I assume when you mention a "rough" neighborhood; that Av. Circunvalacion is in Surquillo; right in the area where when you cross the main road (Paseo de la Republica) - you are in MF?

Appreciate the help; fellow expaters,

No I am by rough neighbourhood the end of Circunvalacion, where it meets the Carretera Central, and where Av Mexico also meets the Carretera Central. Where is San Jacinto ( all the stolen autoparts ) in La Victoria. I don't know of a more rough neighbourhood than that particular area..

One (possibly silly) question:

If this area in La Victoria is "noted" as the hot-bed for stolen auto parts; why doesn't the Peruvian government go in there - in a mass raid/similar to FBI tactics - & arrest the criminals?

Are there mafia/mob influences involved or is the "envelope full of cash" being used for favors?
I detest criminal activity; I was a "whistle-blower" in my community of PA.
Rather than discipline the corrupt mayor, attorneys/ & judges; I was the one the police focused upon!!!

It became so obvious with the harassment & two (2) arrests (including jail time) for NOTHING; that I should get as far away from the situation as possible - thus Peru.

PS - "charges" were always - DROPPED (with the arrests); but I will not allow anyone to take my freedom!

Now you do it again. You start a topic about a subject, but in the end you yourself go off-topic ?

Just have a look in the mentioned area for kitchen equipment, but be careful as it is a dangerous area.

Yes, I know that area:

1. Always go when there is plenty of "light" from the sun; criminals love the "shadows" & the night.
2. Always go with a friend or two; criminals like to take advantage of "loners".
3. Make sure you include one person that is fluent in Spanish; I go to Tacora for antiques & my Spanish partner tells me to NEVER talk in English - it is a sure way to be assaulted & robbed (left with only your underwear)!

I have a police officer friend that goes with me for 30 soles for an entire day; well worth the investment.

Stay safe,
Philip :roll:
