Whether you’re in the mood for a light seafood lunch or some of our favorite fried rice around, Natalie’s Peruvian Seafood Restaurant offers plenty of both with two locations in Hollywood and Glendale. The menu’s ceviche mixto comes with the usual fish, shrimp, and squid, but it’s the salad’s sour marinade that makes it worth immediately peeling off the 101 Freeway for. The leche de tigre, which is a mixture of lemon juice and assorted spices, comes in a beautiful dark-yellow-almost-orange color with a bit of ají chili that makes us pucker up after each bite. The ceviche then receives its boiled potatoes, pickled onions, and chancha (fried corn kernels) for some great crunch. The other star on Natalie’s menu is the arroz chaufa, Peru’s take on Chinese fried rice. The Especial a la Natalie arroz is a surf-and-turf situation with freshly grilled shrimp, squid, octopus, mussels, beef, and chicken, all of which get folded into eggy fried rice seasoned with a healthy splash of soy sauce.
