Mario's is one of the better-known Peruvian restaurants in the city, serving traditional dishes like citrus-marinaded seafood ceviche and lomo saltado, the stir-fried combination of beef and French fries. If guests of this strip mall restaurant want some extra spiciness added to their meal, they can use the squeeze bottles of green aji chili sauce placed at every table.
