Forget about fanciness. The trend that has been present for some years about Peruvian restaurants has resulted in the “gourmetization” of many spots serving this kind of food and has often led to disproportionately inflated prices. But this is not Inka 2 we are talking about, located in the Clot zone of Barcelona.
The restaurant is the brand’s second location, which has taken over the spot of an old bar in a corner of Barcelona’s not-very-touristic area. It is not very appealing going in, but it is really rewarding to eat there, both price- and tastiness-wise.
As it was a weekday, during lunchtime, I opted for their daily menu, which is worth 11 euro and includes entrée, main dish, dessert, and a non-alcoholic drink. The amount of food you get is amazing – not to mention the flavor! I ordered a ceviche as an entrée, then a “seco de cordero” which is lamb meat with rice and white beans (lots of it). For dessert, I got their homemade pudding.
Everything was delicious, homemade, and very simple – really where a local might eat every day. So if you want to taste good, real Peruvian food, go to Inka!
