I just had lunch again at a great NEW little peruvian resturant.
I usually go down the street( Vine St) to Marios, which has become a Hollywood staple in recent years.....But this new place " Los Balcones " was really tasty! it is on the corner of Vine and Delongrpe , and is family owned and operated. their Aji (green sauce) is far better than Marios and their saltdo was very flavorful. We also tasted their Mussels ....also better than Marios and are served on the half shell with a little tomtoe and onion on too and wonderful Liquid mixture.... to scoop into the shell or dip your bread.
Service is very freindly as the owner takes a personal interest, decor is very modest , but they are trying ....
As I have now been there a few times to get a feel for it...i see their portions are getting better although they can be inconsistent...but that is also improving.
The food is great and so far havent had anything that didn't taste awesome.
