We were debating where to eat among the places on South Trail -- Chilis, Red Lobster, maybe a Thai place. Then we saw Inkato in a small shopping center and decided to take a chance on it. From the outside it's just another place, nothing special. But step through the door and go inside and suddenly you could be in an upscale restaurant in Lima. Attractive and clean decor, very welcoming host/staff, quiet, soft music in the background. A scattering of spanish voices from other diners, and you know you're in for a treat.
This is authentic Peruvian food, delicious and beautifully presented, and with large portions. The chupe de camarones was tempting but we went for some terrific corvina covered with a wonderful sauce and various shellfish, accompanied by a nice Peruvian wine. One dessert was tres leches, probably the best we've had anywhere in the U.S. (it has a hint of Pisco in it); the other dessert was a mousse made from lucuma, a fruit that grows in the Amazon region. We'll definitely be returning.
