"Cash Mob MKE" is a weekly event – dare we call it a movement – that encourages folks to order from the same place on the same day and/or evening. The goal is to provide the restaurant with a stellar, sellout night, and in return, we get a delicious meal made with local love. 

The next Cash Mob MKE (#cashmobmke) will take place this Wednesday, Jan. 27 at Triciclo Peru, 3801 W. Vliet St. 

Triciclo Peru, owned by Mario Diaz and Amy Darr, opened the doors to their first restaurant in December of 2019, which, as we all know, wasn't the most ideal timing.

Let's (cash) mob 'em, Milwaukee!

Triciclo Peru's hours are 3:30 to 10 p.m. Their full menu will be available during the cash mob. They do not take cash and ask people to order online via the website or call in their order at (414) 239-8388 and pay with a credit card upon arrival for pick up (pre-orders can be made by phone only). Limited dine-in is also available (by reservation only).
