Student Opens a Homestyle Peruvian Restaurant at MSU Named the “New Thing” in Town

leave a comment »

Mississippi State University’s local student newspaper The Reflector reported they finally got a Peruvian restaurant in their neighborhood and it’s considered the “new thing” in Starkville, Mississippi. With a peculiar name, “Gordo’s” (which means “Fatty’s” in Spanish but it is often used as an endearment term in Peru) just opened its door primarily to students who will be able to enjoy the typical Peruvian dishes including the Ceviche.

With a homestyle type of food, the founder is Eduardo Reyes, a young MSU graduate student pursuing a masters in accounting and has been a member of the Starkville community for two and a half years.

It doesn’t need to be a huge empire as Gaston Acurio’s as I mentioned in my earlier post, but it is great to see how young Peruvians (and their families) are getting on board of this new Peruvian cuisine boom even in a small town as Starkville. Congrats!
