LA Weekly's Description

So close to the ArcLight Theater that it shares its parking lot, Los Balcones del Peru lies at the precise border of redeveloped Hollywood and its shadow, a breath of garlicky authenticity a few steps south from the velvet-rope district. Los Balcones also may be the only Peruvian restaurant in town without tapes of Andean panpipe music, which is almost a miracle, at least if you ignore the occasional charanga version of “Feelings.” It is easy to spend hours here after a movie, eating fried fish, fried-chicken “chicharrones” and scallops broiled with Parmesan cheese, drinking Peruvian beer from the Inca city of Cuzco. The standard Peruvian-Chinese dishes, the saltados and taillarines, aren't that good here - ceviche is pretty much the specialty: shrimp ceviche; fish ceviche; shrimp, squid and octopus ceviche; and the miraculous camarones a la piedra, a spicy, sharp shrimp ceviche from the north of Peru that is properly served warm. Los Balcones is a lot cheaper than Nobu. Validated parking at ArcLight Cinema.

    Signature dishes like marinated beef heart and ceviches are joined by (fully cooked) ceviche de pollo and pork spare ribs. At the bar, expect plenty of pisco sours, but also traditional chilcanos.

    That ceviche is amazing, we also got the anticucbo de corazon, so delicious. I recommend family style so get to try everything, there isn't a bad thing on the menu
