Settle in for a taste of Lima in sunny LA
Peruvian cuisine boasts an avalanche of global influences — from Africa, China, Spain, and Italy — not to mention the country’s indigenous Inkan culture. Take for instance the crowd-pleasing lomo saltado, a Chinese-influenced stir-fry of steak and French fries seasoned with soy sauce, vinegar, and chilies, and the tallarines verdes, a vaguely Italian pesto that pairs like a dream with grilled steak. From pristine ceviches to grilled beef hearts and soulful fried rice, look no further than Peruvian cooking for a taste of all that is good in the world. Here now are the 12 essential Peruvian restaurants in Los Angeles.
