The Mexican

Delicias Peruanas is a Peruvian restaurant in Lake Forest. Seemingly all locals go in for a bite during the week: office drones on a lunch break, Latino families looking to see their soccer club on ESPN Deportes, Middle Eastern women sporting sweats and Gucci, regular Americans who have learned to love a good saltado after eating at Nory's for the past decade. At times, the service can be sporadic because running the scene is a Peruvian man and his family (don't be surprised when you hear a kid you think is Asian speak in fluent Spanish—Chinese and Japanese have been migrating to Peru for centuries). And the entrees are tried-but-true standards (tallarines, saltados, ceviches and the like) and priced a bit high. But trust in this bright spot.
