Inti Restaurant

Having had our reservation cancelled at another restaurant, we decided to take our party of eight to Inti. I phoned ahead to ensure there was space, and they set aside a table for us. They are located in a strip mall with a couple other restaurants on my wishlist: Clay Oven and Fat Kee.

I remember trying Peruvian food at a place in Inglewood long ago. I was fascinated that french fries were a part of their cuisine. I suspect that Peru is a melting pot of culinary culture.

We were quite impressed with the food. We all had the dinner buffet. They had a salad bar, complete with nine sauces and salad dressings. I quite liked their spicy brasa sauce. They had a small main course section with: fried yucca (cassava) root, french fries, french bread, steamed rice, soy sauce fried rice, roast chicken, spicy chicken, baked beans, quinoa, beef stew, loma saltado (beef stir fry), and seafood soup.  I really enjoyed the whitefish and squid ceviche. Many of the flavors were unique, as I had not tasted them before.

The dessert table had a tapioca style pudding, a berry cinnamon jam/pudding, creme caramel, and a cake was dense and sweet. It was all very tasty.

The service was good. This place definitely deserves a repeat visit.

My buffet dinner. Roast chicken, spicy chicken, seafood ceviche, quinoa, fried yucca, baked beans and fried rice.

Inca Cola. Tastes like cream soda.
