    What is it? Is it the reincarnation of El Chavo?

      I think the poster meant Don Felix.
      It's Peruvian, on Fountain west of Sunset.

      El Chavo is still just El Chavo.

        I believe El Chavo is closed for remodeling. Weren't they bought out by the Edendale Grill?

          Melanie Tusquellas, the owner of Edendale, bought El Chavo. The last time I spoke with her she wasn't really talking about changing the menu, just remodeling part of it into a bigger bar area.

        Cam the Man went with us there about a decade ago, at which time he pronounced the pasta with shrimp the best shrimp dish he'd eaten in a restaurant. (He's moved on and up; now, for him, it's a toss-up between Alan Wong's and some place in Venice. Italy, not CA. . . my son, the foodie....)
        I don't know that we've been back since. Prior to that, the only Peruvian food I'd had was at Mario's on Vine at Melrose, so we didn't have much standard for comparision. I remember thinking the potato thing with the screaming yellow, cool cheese sauce was kinda odd, but I understand it's a standard item. . .

        It's still there, though, so SOMEONE must be eating there. . .

        Might be too late, but I like the drink called Chicha Morada as well as the stir fried dishes that include seafood and potatoes/french fries, sauteed with onions and tomatoes-its called Saltado. Somehow the combination works They also do a soup called Shrimp Chupe that is pretty good (kind of like a shrimp chowder).
