ROANOKE, Va. – After World War II, people of many different nationalities settled in Peru, making it a worldwide culinary destination.
Lucky for us, we don’t have to travel far to get a taste of what makes it so special. Anny Hernandez and her friends opened Inka Grill Peruvian Cuisine in downtown Roanoke just months ago.
“There were no Peruvian restaurants, and the closest was like 2 hours so people had to drive.”
When you take Chinese, Italian and French food and use Peru’s natural resources, you get the best of all worlds.
Hernandez says, “It’s very flavor[ful], it’s very healthy, it’s very tasty.”
Clyde Evely and his wife decided to give it a try and could tell right away that it was fresh.
“This is not open a can, dump it in the microwave and take it out of the freezer. This is good cooking.”
We went back to the kitchen where chef Eddie showed us how to make three kinds of Ceviche and their Tacu Tacu con Lomo. Eddie’s been cooking ever since he was a kid, combining the foods of different nations into many flavorful dishes.
