I have been to several Peruvian restaurants and this one was ok. We before the downtown art walk one night. Could have been that the restaurant was slammed. Had drinks, appetizer, dinner and dessert. I think the appetizer was the only thing that stood out.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
