peruvian food on line for jay leno

recently while visiting a friend in LA, we went to a taping of the tonight show. before we got into line we stopped at a delicious peruvian restaurant for lunch. i had aji de galina -chicken in walnut sauce. although i could not discern any walnut in the dish, it was excellent. the sauce was rich and creamy and the fresh cilantro on top added the perfect bite of flavor. i also had potatoes with huancaina sauce (smooth and mild cheese sauce) and peruvian beans. the beans were pintos with an added kick of what tasted like vinegar. yum! not only was the food great but the gentleman who took our order was friendly enough to let us sample quite a few things before making our selections.
