I didn't get any bread, sangria, small pitcher cost $35, a dinner for two no dessert $97. I'll never go again.

One of the worst restaurants I've been to in my entire life. I should've known everything was going to be bad after I realized the chicha morada was reeking of clove. I have spent a considerable amount of time in Peru and I am well familiarized with its cuisine - I know, nothing in Miami (or anywhere else for that matter) is gonna come close to the real deal but I also know that chicha morada's primary ingredient is not clove, if anything the cinnamon should override the flavor of the clove - The very small jar of this repugnant take on chicha morada was a spankin' $16. Next there was the passion fruit pisco sour: no foam, no angostura bitter and I bet it was the crapiest pisco ever, probably not even acholado and I bet my college tuition that there was no egg white on that drink, seriously, they might as well have given my friend passion fruit Kool Aid with Everclear. So first, I had the anticuchos (veal heart skewers), which were either made from the poorest veal heart on the continent or they just thought they could pass greasy poorly cooked dog meat for that, oh yeah, no papa amarilla and no choclo, and no sauces for that matter. My friend had the chicken causa and seriously, she might as well have bought rotisserie chicken and potato salad from Publix and mixed it all up. For out main courses I had arroz con mariscos (rice with seafood) and it was really unappetizing, the rice was mushy (not a good kind of mushy) the clams were anything but fresh and I swear those mussels were borderline rotten. My friend had some sort of lomo saltado with a twist, which apparently was made out of a terrible cut of meat, full of fat and muscle and some concoction of potatoes, mushroom and crispy stripes of what apparently was cassava, but who knows, it was to bad to keep on trying to figure it out. To finally end, we shared a suspiro de limena, I wanted to barf, it tasted like raw cloves (again) and the bottom layer was way too firm, to the point that it tasted like overcooked milk. I seriously hope that they pay the chef a trip to Peru so he realizes he is screwing everything up, and if he is Peruvian, well... He should get fired.

Went for lunch yesterday with my boyfriend. After the good reviews we were expecting decent food. We had to send back the ceviche special that the waiter recommended and the tamales lacked flavor and had one tiny little bite of chicken which was also flavorless. The steak came nicely accompanied however under cooked. The best part was the flan like dessert. Definitely not going back.

I've been to a lot of peruvian restaurants. It's almost a life's quest to taste every interpretation of ceviche. If you've been to a lot you know what to expect. Good food, cheap atmosphere, probably a big tv with the soccer game on. El gran inka is complete unlike that. It's upscale, beautifully designed, and the dishes are not only delicious but beautiful to look at. The worst thing is deciding wether to sit outside in beautiful eather or inside in the high designed interior.
