One of the best additions to our neighborhood restaurant scene in a long time is Delwood, in Mt. Lookout Square, at the intersection of Delta and Linwood. At Delwood, they are putting their own Latin American spin on the classic American dishes.

Crispy Brussels Sprouts

First of all their crispy Brussels Sprouts ($8) are top notch! These are a staple of many American restaurants now, but Delwoods are served with Aji Verde aioli. The sauce is a spicy Peruvian green sauce, sometimes made with cilantro, jalapeƱos, mayonnaise, and Parmesan. These are delicious and a staple of our order every time!

Kid's Burger

While not listed specifically on their menu, Delwood is very kid friendly. They have a burger that is served plain with cheese and ketchup on the side. Their burger is quite good, and my daughter has even grown to love their Classic Double Cheeseburger ($11), with cheese, pickle, and special sauce.

Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich

My go-to sandwich is the Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich ($10) with spicy Rocoto aioli and salsa Criolla. Rocoto is a Peruvian chili pepper, which really adds a kick to this sandwich. And the salsa Criolla (pickled onions and peppers) adds a nice balance to the heat.

Chicken Fingers

Their buttermilk fried chicken is extremely good. It’s a great start for their chicken sandwiches, and can even be ordered as an entree or from the kid’s menu.

Waffle Fries

And finally, no meal of ours is complete without an order of waffle fries ($5) served with Aji Amarillo aioli. The Aji Amarillo is the Peruvian Yellow Chili Pepper, so the sauce again has a bit of heat. We also have some ketchup available for the kids or to put out the heat in our mouths after all of the wonderfully spicy food.
