New Peruvian: Inka's on Mission @ 29th

Eli | Mar 11, 200609:13 PM     3

I thought the food was great and the price very reasonable. Kind of empty, so give it a try.

The owners are Chinese Peruvians who have been in the restaurant business back in Peru, and there is a home touch to all the dishes (the cooks are the owner's parents).

We had and were impressed by:
* the fish ceviche: nicely done; the fish tasted great, and it had all the good sides that should come with ceviche: the red onions, the sweet corn, the yucca, and the sweet potato in a nice, spicy lime sauce (missing those cornnuts that some places do though).
* parihuela: very nice seafood soup with a touch of cream and wine. the fish inside the soup was very nice, I think stir-fried before hand so very flavorful.
* pollo a la brasa: their speciality, cooked just right.

Most peruvian I've had in the city is very upscale; this place feel closer to what I've had down in L.A.
