Incas Peruvian Restaurant - Milford CT anyone been??
Just drove by on Naugatuck Avenue in Milford and noticed this place. It was closed or I would have gone in. Any word on it - is it good? Is it as authentic as Fiesta in Stamford/Norwalk?
I've eaten here an handful of times now. I consider it to be average to good. It's reasonably priced. The decor is very nice for the price. Sometimes there's a little bit of a language barrier if you only speak English. My dining partner really likes it there. I know it's off topic, but Aldario's, which is about a stone's throw away has amazing Italian food for the price. I was thinking of trying Costa Azzura (spelling?) down on the water near St. Gabrial's Church, but never hear much about it.
As previously noted, our summer home is near Inca's, Aldario's, and Costa Azzura, and it's been several years since we visited the latter. I guess it's just us, but we find the interior of CA to be very depressing - the "stalagmites and stalagtites" decor is just too old and dated, and it seemed as if every time we ate there, the tablecloth was either torn, stained, or both! For pretty much the same $$, we think that Aldario's is a far superior choice all the way around. For years, many of us who live nearby have commented that it's too bad that with the primo location, the owners of CA (who happen to be the same family - the Faustinis - that own Aldario's) have never done anything to update their facility.
I went here for lunch today w/my Peruvian dad.
We had Lomo saltado & Jalea especial w/ diet Inka kolas.
The lomo was very good - flavor was spot on, portion size a touch smaller than I've seen but for $10.00 no complaints. It did seem a little steamed v. stirfried but it was freshly made and tasted exactly as it should.
Jalea especial (a mixed fried seafood platter with pickled onions & fried yucca). Excellent breading light & crisp lots of seafood - perfect!
We were too full for dessert but my dad is going back tomorrow for escabeche & papas rellenas.
I call it just as good as Fiesta in Norwalk/stamford and the setting is very nice. (my mom wouldn't wrinkle her nose at it for sure)
Thanks all for recommending!! We'll be back next week with the inlaws to tackle the ceviches.
I GOT THE MENU!!

HOPE THIS HELPS A LITTLE :)
Just went tonight. Very nice inside. All the chicken and beef dishes are $10. Most of the seafood dishes are $13.
They start with hot rolls (homemade)?. Wife and son #1 got the Lomo. The beef, peppers and onions was served over fries and had a side of rice. I had the Beef Lomein Peruvian style. Son #2 had Chicken Milanesa which was simply a lightly breaded and fried chicken breast served with fries and rice. All of it tasted like home cooking. Nothing fancy but good home cooking. And for $10, it is a bargain.
I would say that the portions were not huge since we all finished every morsel and was looking for more. This is a great mid week $10 joint.
I would definitely go back.
Hey man just like Texas home cooking; instead of beans and rice, fries a nd rice, ubiquitious. Lotsa beef. Now a saltena beats any taco al to hell. Your just jealous that I've eaten BBQ'd cow's udder, guinea pig, monkey and iguana; now that's "authentic".
Seriously, lots of carbs are the sign of a 3rd world nation. Did Inca have yucca and planteno too? Were the French fries of unusually caliber? Did they have chicharone?
Tex, we just gotta do Two Hounds do the Number 7 Line (And youcan lead when 2 Hounds do Dallas). I'll take you to a place on Roosevelt Ave for cui (Guinea pig) and another in Sunnyside for saltenas and chicharon.
Wife and me had a second visit tonight. 8pm on a saturday, we were the only ones there. No one else in the restaurant. Bad omen? Later, two more tables were seated. First thing we noticed was the new menu with higher prices. Entrees went up about $3. Now most things are $13-$14.
My wife ordered the Parihuela- "Peruvian's best seafood soup". I had the Sopa de Pescado which was a "Homemade fish soup". Both soups had the same broth. A watery tomato flavorless broth. The seafood in the Parihuela had no taste or seasoning. The quality looked like the cheap frozen seafood you would see in a Chinese buffet. We were both disappointed with soups.
For Entree's, my wife (like the first trip) got the Lomo Saltado which was just ok. I ordered the Picante de Mariscos - Mixed seafood "in a creamy homemade sauce flavored with a slightly spicy Peruvian Pepper" . After tasting the seafood in the soups, I was regretting ordering seafood for the entree. And it turns out, for good reason. When the dish came out, I thought it was the same soup my wife had ordered! Same color broth, same seafood. The only difference was they added a touch of cream to the soup. Otherwise it was the same flavorless seafood, complete with minuscule shrimp that you would get in the 50/60 count bag at stop and shop. Really, really bad.The place looks like they are cutting corners with the food.
Like I mentioned before, for $10, it was good. Now, bad quality with higher prices, sorry to say we will never go there again. By the emptiness of the place, I am not the only one.
I had a meal at Incas a few weeks ago. The atmosphere is great. The people working in the restaurant are very nice. Food was pretty good - the soups with seafood were excellent. The prices are very moderate. Overall I would recommend Incas and I will be going back again.
Great tasting food, HUGE portions, excellent prices, outstanding service. Overall, great place to dine in. Also the the lomo and pollo saltado is excellent. Not too expensive and good service. if you come from 95 take exit 34 and make a right, at the 3rd light make a left and you will see the restaurant at you left hand side in a corner. the best thing its that is BYOB ...!!! Bring Your Own Bottle : - )
Yes. it is hidden and I hope it will last. The food as fine. We had been to Peru and wanted to be reminded of our experience and it did that.
Milford has become the restaurant capital of this part of Ct with many restaurants and almost all are good. A good town to stop in. For the record, to get to this Peruvian restaurant, one comes from Route 1 towards the Long Island Sound on Naugatuck until one reaches Milford Point Road. The restaurant is on that corner. We hope to find it open next weekend.
Inca's is just a bit more than a mile from our summer home, so we stopped by a couple of times in August. The food is very tasty, very inexpensive, and the place is a real family affair. It's one of those places that evokes "I hope they make it in this location but can't imagine how they will!" Most of the entrees are in the $10 - $15 range and while I can't tell you that the experience is memorable, it was a nice change of pace for an inexpensive dinner. Additionally, it is BYOB, so a family of 4 can easily dine for $50 - $60.
It's definitely worth a visit!
