Inca's Kitchen

southwest florida forks

is a restaurant serving Peruvian Cuisine  in East Naples. Traditionally, corn, potatoes and chili peppers were the staples of Peruvian cuisine. With the Spanish Colonization of Peru beginning in the 16th century, other types of food were introduced. Contemporary Peruvian food is derived from a number of cultures.

Cancha, toasted corn nuts, were brought to the table with a variety of mild, Peruvian Chili sauces.

Peru is noted for it's Ceviche, the country from which this dish originated. This is some sort of seafood that is marinated in citrus juices. One of my dining companions and I split an order of ceviche mixto.

This was a mix of shrimp, fish and squid marinated in lime juice. It was spiced with Peruvian chili pepper, or aji, and served with onions, sweet potato and Hominy, staples of Peruvian cooking. It was very good.

Several members of the group ordered Pescado Inca's Wari.

This dish was named after the Wari Empire, an ancient Peruvian culture. Fish on a fish reduction, grilled asparagus and sauteed spinach made up this dinner.

I ordered the Parihuela, a Peruvian seafood soup.

It was excellent. Another diner ordered Chupe De Camerones, a Peruvian seafood chowder.

It was thickened with rice potatoes and eggs, and looked great.

Other dishes that were ordered were the saltado de mariscos, or seafood saute,

and Lomo Saltado, or beef loin saute.

Everyone was very happy with their food and would come back again without hesitation.
