Mario's Peruvian & Seafood

It was a cold and rainy Friday evening, and I was craving something warm and soupy specifically Chupe De Camarones, a Peruvian shrimp chowder from Mario's in Hollywood. At any given time, it's at least a 30-minute wait to get into the restaurant, but the rain kept the crowd away. We were seated immediately.

I don't know what's in the spicy green sauce, but it's so freaking amazing.

Chupe De Camarones with rice, shrimp, cilantro, and evaporated milk.

Camaron Al Ajo: sauteed shrimp in a butter and garlic sauce. You can't really go wrong with the fried shrimp, but I'm happy with just the garlic and butter sauce. Drizzle it all over rice and I could eat a whole bowl.
