When I first moved down to Miami just about eight years ago to attend the U, I thought I had been transported into a South American metropolitan, nothing like what I had envisioned it would be. Instead of stepping into a more modest bunch of peeps like I was hoping after going to such an uppity high school, I was confronted by Prada shoes, Louis Vuitton handbags and Gucci shades (of course, all accompanying some super hot S. American chica). Oh well, as a BrickGal, one must roll with the punches (or in this case condescending glances and foreign languages) and find her own niche (and awesome posse). These days, as a BrickGal, I’ve learned that Miami’s diversity is an integral component of the city’s awesomeness. There is always something new to do or see or, in this case, eat. With new foodie spots opening in Brickell constantly, I’ve been trying to add more interesting cuisines to my repertoire (ya know, expand my horizons and all). Although not super new, Gran Inka really wowed me recently with their authentic Peruvian dishes. The menu is quite extensive (and maybe I was in one of those “I dunno” moods) so it took me awhile to decide on the Chorrillana Fish. Delish! I mean the Mahi Mahi was so fresh, the veggies were cooked perfectly and the sauce was frickin’ to die for. My company chose the Pollo Al Limon con Camarones (Lemon Chicken w/ Shrimp) which he quickly devoured before I had even made it halfway through (fatass! JK). I think that meant he enjoyed it! Other dishes that caught my attention were the Octopus Tiradito & Tuna Ceviche and the Avocado Reina stuffed with chicken and vegetables (next time!). Oh yea, and we couldn’t resist the Suspiro a la Limena for dessert. And by we, I mean me. Inka really got me with the really pretty dessert menu (I’m a sucker for good photos). Point of note, the dessert completely lived up to its photo. Now, you can’t have a great restaurant without great service. It is def the defining factor for me between good and great. Service at Inka did not disappoint. Our water and wine glasses were always refilled promptly, food was delivered hot and our waiter was pretty easy on the eyes. But, to be quite honest, the restaurant wasn’t a poppin’ scene (only about 5-6 tables were occupied) so I can’t be a 100% positive of how the service would be when it’s busy. Alas, the décor is elegant and the mood romantic so BrickGals I definitely recommend you head to Inka for one of your next dates if you’re looking for a pleasant time, the ability to converse and super good food. Gran Inka is located adjacent to Trini Salon on Brickell and 10th (bottom floor of Plaza). Bon Appetit!
