Peruvian or other ethnic eats in Santa Monica/West LA?
I work near Lincoln and Olympic and am looking for inexpensive and tasty lunch takeout. Any great Peruvian, Brazilian, Korean, Japanese, Chinese restaurants in the area?
I've been trying to think of some suggestions, but there isn't much in the area for the cuisines you mentioned. There's Ninjin (Japanese) on Colorado and 7th. There's an okay Korean place on Pico and 17th.
I'm guessing you're already familiar with Sham and Bay Cities.
very good falafal can be had at hungry pocket on pico just east of 17th.
they also offer excellent freshly squeezed juices (they will squeeze the juice TO ORDER).
Not entirely in the neighborhood, but I love Mario's Peruvian
Mario's Peruvian & Seafood

I do not recall the name of the dish now, but I always get a big heap of potatoes stir fried with seafood. Greasy and tasty!
