I have had some of the most amazingly delicious meals
at Mario's Peruvian Seafood in the Radio Shack strip
mall on Vine and Melrose in Hollywood. Saltado de
mariscos (#26) sounds unappetizing to most until they
experience it. Many of my friends have become big MP
fans, even those who were initially reluctant to dig
into a large platter of shellfish with french fries and
onions all sauteed in a magical sauce served over
fluffy white rice. (Plus MP worked its way up to a
sanitation A grade, although my father swears it was
better during the B and C days.) Take note that not all
offerings are as good as #26 or the siete mares soup.
Where else can I find such dishes as well as other
Peruvian delights in the LA area? And why does that
Inca cola taste like bubble gum?
