My wife and I ate lunch at La Perla yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We ordered Patron Silver Margaritas (exceptional), guacamole/chips/salsa, cold shrimp (camarones) soup and chicken in mole, with rice and beans. The drinks were perfectly prepared, the soup delicious (the sweet onions had been soaked overnight in ice water with lemon), avocado and tons of tomatoes. The mole is a specialty of the house and, though a bit spicy, savory. We enjoyed it so much, we took two good size containers home. The mole, an ample quantity, was sold to us at a fair price. Those sorts of ingredients cannot be found in our town. The chicken was shredded and tender. Both meals came with extra flour tortillas. Overall, both meals were perfect. Enrique, a 14-year bartender originally from Mexico City, was delightful company. Overall, we give La Perla very good grades, and we intend to return on our next visit to Milwaukee.
For night owls who love salsa dancing, La Perla has a nightclub which is open from 11:00 pm to 2:00 am. The roof deck patio is an excellent feature for warm, sunny days.
