Mamita's Peruvian in Glendale

Navin R Johnson | Jun 28, 2001 05:25 PM

Went here for lunch on the recommendation of Counter Intelligence, which has hit rate of about 90% in terms of being on the ball.

I was really looking forward to eating "authentic" Peruvian, to see what kind of influence Okinawan immigrants could have on Latin America cuisine, and after going to Nobu and Matshuhisa.

Well, this place was overpriced ($3.00 for a fried plantain! LOL!) and $9 for entrees that were drenched in ketchup and little else. The food was anything but that, barely edible and mostly slop. My girlfriend (who is from Japan and has tried Peruvian food before) was disgusted and kept making faces the entire time we were there. $40 for lunch slop, I would have rather gone to Yoshinoya bowl, where I can get that gross out feel for $5.
