Some friends and I were looking for a culinary escape from a hotel conference buffet. One of the staff members asked an attendant for a good Peruvian ceviche restaurant in the Bal Harbour/Sunny Isles area of Miami for an authentic ceviche restaurant. The attendant called another attendant who was Peruvian and he suggested El Gran Inka.
When we walked in and the staff was as welcoming and accommodating as I have ever seen. They seemed genuinely excited that we sought out from a fancy hotel to try the foods of their home country.
They gave us an overview of the menu and provided a taste tester of their own traditional Pisco Sour. On a hot sunny day in Miami, there was nothing more refreshing and light than that taste on the palate. A perfect accompaniment to the upcoming menu choices that we ordered. Most of us ordered the traditional with two of us trying the passion fruit version which was simply amazingly floral and also refreshing.
We ordered the following choices, each of which were full flavored, well prepared and fostered lots of Ums, Oh’s and Wows:
Yuquitas Cuzco-Cassaba mashed and stuffed with gouda cheese, delicately fried and served with a creamy yellow sauce
Chicharron de Calamar o Jalea-Fried calamari with a creole sauce (not the red stuff) and delicately fried yucca

Al Aji Amarillo- a heavenly smooth and lightly spiced sauce made with Rocotillo peppers, fresh fish, marinated onions and lime.
Superbly executed Aji de Gallina a Spicy Amarillo, a creamed shredded chicken with rice, queso fresco and olives that serves as a comfort food to all who come to crave it.
Thank you Wagner, from the St. Regis,A for the suggestion and to the warm and friendly owners and staff of this amazing restaurant for providing the culinary high point of our entire weekend.
If you are in the area, and you drop by El Gran Inka, it will not disappoint!

The food quality is beyond expectations. Service is friendly and the cocktails are great. Grab a pisco sour and a nice chat with the manager Cristian, a friendly guy that represents the hospitality of this brand. Strongly recommended by a fellow peruvian.

We have been coming for over 5 years and Gran Inka continues to be one of our favorites! Delicious ceviche and Lomo Saltado are our favorites, and the Psico Sours are worth the trip by themselves. Menus updates regularly and service always friendly and prompt. Live music Saturday’s.
