Miami New Times's Description
This Peruvian restaurant chain with roots in Costa Rica recently opened a location in the Plaza on Brickell. Like its sister locations in North Miami Beach and Key Biscayne, it offers an extensive menu with emphasis on Peruvian seafood specialties. There's a large selection of ceviches and tiraditos - calamari, shrimp, fresh fish, octopus - served in both citrus and cream sauces ($12.95 to $14.95). Among the main courses are Peruvian-Chinese dishes such arroz con mariscos (seafood with rice, $16.95), as well as seafood gratin ($19.95), grilled tuna medallion ($19.95), and flambéed spicy shrimp ($18.95). For meat lovers, there's the traditional tenderloin, lomito saltado ($16.95); and the sautéed tenderloin Inka, a Peruvian surf-and-turf ($19.95). All portions are generous, but a few dishes are made specially for sharing, such as the parilla Gran Inka - a large serving of grilled meats, fish, and seafood ($69.95) - and the ceviche trilogy ($29.95). The wine list is decent, but the pisco menu alone is worth a visit; several unique offerings include pisco de Cuzco, Chilacano pisco, and pisco sour catedral. The staff is friendly and attentive. Large tables in a modern dining room with sparse décor make this a good location for business lunches and dinners.
Tips from foursquare
Get brazen with your beverage choice. We’re fans of the sweet, non-alcoholic beverage Chichi Morada, which is made from purple corn, as well as the Pisco Mojito. Via CityEats.com
The best Peruvian restaurant. Ask For an Algarrobina cocktail made by Maricarmen. She's the best!
Any of the pisco drinks are delicious! Enjoy with a ceviche appetizer.
