Inka Grill Peruvian Restaurant

Inka Grill was founded 16 years ago in Costa Mesa as a small family restaurant reflecting their Peruvian heritage. I have arranged for us to eat "family style" which means we can sample from a wide variety of dishes. We will split the bill equally (except for alcohol) and the price of the dinner (without tax and tip) will be about $18. I would be happy to make one or two of the entrees vegetarian for participants who cannot eat meat. Our featured entrees will be:


1) Seco de Cordero Norteno or Lamb Stew: This dish can have a kick as it is flavored by the aji amarillo pepper.

2) Loma Saltado (pictured): This dish reflects the Asia influences in Peruvian food. It is a mix of Chinese stir fry and Peruvian meat and potatoes.

3)  Chimbotanos: Pork braised to a golden brown served with papa seca, which are Andean organic potatoes, garlic, red chili sauce, and marinated onions.

4) Spinach Basil Spaghetti: Lightly breaded chicken breast served over spaghetti in our homemade spinach basil sauce.

5)  Empanadas: Hand filled pastries of chicken, beef, or spinach and feta cheese. Served with a spicy lime juice sauce for dipping.

6) Paella (Arroz con Mariscos): Mixed seafood cooked with cilantro rice.

7) Parihuela (Fisherman's Stew): Calamari, mussels, halibut, and shrimp.

8)  Pasta Giorgios: Shrimp, calamari, and fish sauteed with roasted garlic in a light soy ginger chili cream sauce.

9) Possibly some sides such as fried plantains or dessert. So many choices!

 I am requiring a deposit for this event. I will give you back a crisp $10 bill at the restaurant. Amazon is our "escrow" account with meetup. I will refund your money only if I can find a replacement. I have committed to purchasing 8 entrees from the restaurant. With such a wide assortment to choose from, you can sample dishes from throughout Peru!

    The service was outstanding. We ate family style which gave us an opportunity to sample other dishes. Participants were delightful (as usual!) Thanks to all for another wonderful evening!
