Oh! My goodness! This is such a quaint area and Peruvian food is delicious and authentic, my husband and I are big supporters

I think this is one of my five star reviews in a long time. I'll be honest, we went to the old spot once and did not like it at all. They recently relocated and we decided to check it out. I love the decor and overall vibes. Both of our meals were amazing. The prices are reasonable and service was excellent. This will definitely be one of our new frequent spots!

Super cute place to have a nice, quiet dinner. This is an old and nice building, and the owner has found a creative way to channel some Peruvian vibes. The service was on point, super friendly, and the food came out really fast! I ordered the typical Saltado. It comes with ribeye, but I substituted the meat or chicken instead. It was delicious! I will say, though, it did not have a lot of fries. I like to mine with a lot of

fries, but delicious either way. My husband ordered the scampi with shrimp. Yummm, the sauce was so creamy, delicious, and it came with lots of shrimp. The green sauce for the table bread is delicious. Be careful. It's spicy! It's a little on the pricey for being Peruvian food, but all in all, it was a great dining experience.

About Peruvian Food and it's Demographics

INKA MAMA'S Peruvian Cuisine is located in
Old Town San Clemente California.


Peruvian cuisine reflects local practices and ingredients including influences mainly from the indigenous population, including the Inca, and cuisines brought by immigrants from Europe (Spanish cuisine and Italian cuisine), Asia (Chinese cuisine and Japanese cuisine), and Africa (Maghrebi cuisine and West African cuisine). Without the familiar ingredients from their home countries, immigrants modified their traditional cuisines by using ingredients available in Peru.

empanada is a type of baked or fried turnover consisting of pastry and filling, common in Spain, other Southern European countries, Latin American countries, and the Philippines. The name comes from the Spanish empanar (to bread, i.e., to coat with bread), and translates as 'breaded', that is, wrapped or coated in bread. They are made by folding dough over a filling, which may consist of meat, cheese, tomato, corn, or other ingredients, and then cooking the resulting turnover, either by baking or frying.

Scampi (Nephrops norvegicus), also called Norway lobster or "Sausage of the sea", Norwegian lobster, langoustine or Dublin Bay prawn, is an edible lobster of the order Decapoda. It is widespread in the Mediterranean and northeastern Atlantic, from North Africa to Norway and Iceland, and is a gastronomic delicacy.

saltado is a popular, traditional Peruvian dish, a stir fry that typically combines marinated strips of sirloin (or other beef steak) with onions, tomatoes, french fries, and other ingredients; and is typically served with rice. The dish originated as part of the chifa tradition, the Chinese cuisine of Peru, though its popularity has made it part of the mainstream culture

Paella is a rice dish originally from theValencian Community.Paellais regarded as one of the community's identifying symbols.It is one of the best-known dishes in

Tallarín saltado is a Peruvian dish that is found in chifa cuisine. The name of the dish comes from the word "stir-fry" (saltear), in which the food is fried over high heat in small pieces. To make this dish, some cooked noodles, vegetables and portions of meat are sautéed to taste. The seasoning or dressing comes from Chinese spices and sesame oil.

chaufa-consists of a mix of fried rice with vegetables, usually including scallions, eggs, and chicken, quickly cooked at high heat, often in a wok with soy sauce and oil.[1][3] It comes from the Chinese cuisine due to the influx of Chinese immigrants to Peru at the end of the 19th century.[

Inca Kola (also known as "the Golden Kola" in international advertising) is a soft drink that was created in Peru in 1935 by British immigrant Joseph Robinson Lindley. The soda has a sweet, fruity flavor that somewhat resembles its main ingredient, lemon verbena (not to be confused with lemongrass, both of which can be known as hierbaluisa in Spanish). Americans compare its flavor to bubblegum or cream soda, and it is sometimes categorized as a champagne cola.[

Anticuchos are popular and inexpensive meat dishes that originated in the Andes during the pre-Colombian era, specifically in the Antisuyu region of the Tawantinsuyu (Inca Empire). The modern dish was adapted during the colonial era between the 16th and 19th centuries and can now be found in Peru.

Ajiaco is a soup common to Colombia, Cuba,[1] and Peru. Scholars have debated the origin of the dish. The dish is especially popular in the Colombian capital, Bogotá, being called Ajiaco santafereño, where it is typically made with chicken, three varieties of potatoes, and the herb Galinsoga parviflora, known locally as guasca or guascas. In Cuba, ajiaco is prepared as a stew, while in Peru the dish is prepared with a number of regionally specific variations.
