Yesterday JP and I participated in another Fat Tour. We went to this place neither of us had been to called Inti Restaurant over on Melrose and Cahuenga. Never been here and never heard of it. Hell, I'd never even eaten Peruvian food before so this was a lot of little new things. I won't even try and name the stuff we had but I'll try to describe it as best I can. I wanted to try two new dishes and rethought this decision once I saw one of the big ass plates someone else had.
We each got a dish that was spaghetti, Tallarin Saltado De Carne, with some type of soy sauce (I got chicken she got beef) with onions and tomato. It was a huge portion but we ended up eating almost all of it. I also got what is called a Lomo Saltado which was “strips of beef sauteed with onions, tomatoes, and french fries served with steamed white rice, strips of beef sauteed with onion.” I know that sounds crazy but I'll be damned if a plate full of fries, steak, and rice wasn't amazing. We killed that dish.
We got the plantains too which were made differently than I'd had before. They were fried a little more and sweeter. Oh, and the Inca Cola is now one of my new favorite drinks. Damn, this place was really good. The prices were cheap, and the service was fast and nice. The only downside is the fact that it is on Melrose so parking was a bitch to get. Even before we were finished eating I told JP that we had to come back and try some more dishes. We later went to Carmela's and Bob's for coffee and donuts as an extra dessert on top of the caramel cookie we got with lunch.
