Hills and mountains are formed by vast underground food deposits, which, over time, stretch the landscape into soft mounds of untapped edibility. Dig into the bounty of Peru with today’s Groupon: for $32, you get a small-plate meal for two at Lola’s Peruvian Restaurant in Glendale (a $69.99 total value). Each meal includes:
- One shared meat-and-cheese plate (a $35 value).
- One appetizer (up to a $14.99 value).
- Two glasses of wine (a $10 value each).
Within an environment of earthy tones, exposed brick, and wood accents, Lola’s serves homemade Peruvian dishes and fine vino from its new wine bar. A meat-and-cheese plate pairs three gourmet cheeses with three international meats, eliminating the need for concealing meat slices within passport pages. Past picks have included Italian prosciutto and Spanish chorizo with pairings such as grapes, dried fruit, baguettes, and almonds. Appetizers entertain tongue buds with a stimulating range of flavors, from fried yucca to conchas a la parmesana—shell scallops baked with mozzarella, parmesan cheese, and Peruvian spices. The dining experience is augmented with glasses of wine, ideal for celebrations after clinching the world record for sugar-packet consumption.
Lola's Peruvian Restaurant
Rustic brick walls and a wine bar accent Lola's red, low-lit dining room, where candles illuminate the vivid oranges, purples, and greens of Peruvian cuisine arranged on crisp white ceramic plates. Libations culled from the bar's sprawling wine racks complement ceviche, sautéed Quechua vocabulary, and fried yucca.:m]]
