If you brave the winding roads to Glendale this Valentines Day and seek out Lola’s Peruvian Restaurant, you’ll be richly rewarded with the best secret menu in town. Don’t see the Special Woodfire Marinated Chicken? Order it anyway. You won’t be sorry. Manager Maurizio Vincenzi welcomes you to this 14 year old restaurant in the classic style—quality food, excellent hard-to-find Incan wines served up in a relaxed dining room. Chef Sandra serves up the unique fare of Peru—Asian influences coalesce with signature dishes from South America. Rice is served, but it is fried with tangy soy and calamari. Yucca (cassava) is served but with a rich Huancaina sauce—the best spicy cheese sauce ever made. Whatever you do, don’t miss the specialty Chancho Al Palo—Woodfire Rotisserie Pork served with golden potatoes, white rice and salsa Criolla. It is like you have been whisked away to the land of beach fires and salt water. Have your own hacienda just past Atwater Village as you sip on wines you can only find at this location. Comfort wine is the name of the game with Tabernero wines from the Chincha Valley. Don’t leave without trying the one-and-only Flan de Choclo, a delicious creamy yellow corn flan presented on a corn husk and drizzled with sauce. Be decadent, be daring. Paradise is only the “5 Freeway” away.
