Happy Birthday to MGG!

We celebrated my boyfriend, MGG's, birthday last Saturday in Hollywood.  Boy what a day.  It's been a while since we have been down there and it was so much fun exploring Hollywood Blvd.

From Hollywood and Highland where the Academy Awards are held...


To the Hollywood Wax Museum...

But one of the best part's of the day was the food!  We ate dinner at a Peruvian restaurant, Balcones Del Peru.  What a gem!  The atmosphere is cozy and moody.

The service was outstanding!

The food was exceptional!!

Our appetizer was Papas A La Huancaina,  little boiled potatoes in a spicy huancaina feta cheese sauce with hard boiled eggs and some dressed greens. Completely different from anything I've eaten, and delicious!

MGG had Aji De Gallina,  a spicy dish of shredded chicken in an aji amarillo and bread creamy sauce.  He devoured it!

I had the Pollo Saltado, a dish of chicken, onion, tomatoes, and french fries in a spicy soy based sauce.

If you are ever in the LA area, stop by Hollywood and take in the sites, and some outstanding food!

Cheers to Balcones Del Peru for the great ambiance, a romantic evening....
and cheers to my baby on his birthday!
