My first delicious experience with Peruvian food occurred at a place called Natalie Peruvian (next to my favorite spot Yai) in Thai Town. I immediately fell in love with the familiarity of it's Asian and South/Central American influences. There's a complexity in it's flavor combination without any heaviness and the meal made such an impression on me. Does anyone have any information about Peru's culinary origins and other restaurants in LA worth visiting? I'd also love to recreate some of the dishes at home...is there a specific direction I should take in regards my pantry? Thanks!
