A Winner!

Being a fan of El Pollo Inka in Southern California, we decided to try El Inka while we were passing through the Portland area, and we were not disappointed! The dishes were so good, even our normally picky kids wolfed down their food! We ordered Papa a la Huancaina (potatoes covered in spicy... read more

Have come here couple times with friend from Peru. Authentic, delicious food. Can take home rotisserie chicken for lunch/dinner. Will come here again.

First of all, we went when it was 106 F in the parking lot. To find they have a/c, but with the doors open and the oven from the night before (wood burning for chickens) it was an oven of at least 120+ degrees. So, of course we dined indoors! There is no outside seating. Had the ceviche mixed, and... More

A great discovery just a few blocks from downtown Gresham. Fresh ingredients, prepared well, in an inviting atmosphere. Any place that welcomes carnivores, vegetarians and even vegans to come and enjoy food together at the same table is exciting to me. Don't overthink it, the menu is fairly straightforward and thoughtful. Make sure to order an Inca Kola to complete... More

The chicken is the best I've had and you can tell it is slow roasted all day - you can actually see it spinning in their big hearth when you go in. The dipping sauces for it are not a must, but really gives it a whole new twist. Not sure what herbs and spices they use, but the Peruvians... More

I have only been there once, but got the tomato based soup with seafood in it, and a fried fish and rice dish. The sauces had a taste combination that I had never tasted before. It was excellent.

We live in Portland and have been wanting to go to this restaurant for months, but we never felt motivated enough to do the drive (approx. 15 miles away). Finally, we went on Saturday. AMAZING. Their specialty is chicken and they have excellent seafood as well as vegetarian options. Make sure you order: *Chicha morada (non-alcohonlic drink, which they make... More

Discovered this place, a "hole in the wall" restaurant in a tiny strip mall, on a whim several years ago when it first opened. Simple and small dining room, but serves great Peruvian food. Specialty is chicken. It is my wife's favorite place in the area. Been there many times, always satisfying.

I ordered a 1/2 roasted chicken for $12.49 that was served along with fries and a salad, thinking it would be large enough to share with my son. The chicken was a little dry and rather bland until you add the sauces to it. The half portion is definitely on the smaller scale. The fries were limp and the salad... More
