First time at the San Clemente location. Went there for dinner. It was very bright and open, and had a visible soda refrigerator out in the dining area. Gave it a very casual and cheap feel. Get some blinds on the windows and darken it up in there, make it a bit more intimate. Went there for a date night, but the bright atmosphere and visible drink stations and refrigerator made it feel like a cheap carry out or quick sit down restaurant. Don't get me wrong, we LOVE the food, but the feel was a little off.

We went twice with a groupon. The first time was great -- service was awesome and staff was friendly from start to finish. The second time, a new waitress took over from the point she delivered our food. Not sure if she is always like this or if it was because she saw we had a groupon, but she didn't pay much attention to us, ran off with the groupon and brought back our bill before offering dessert (we were planning on ordering some but skipped it since we would have had to redo the bill), and we had to track her down to get boxes for our leftovers. On, and fortunately one of the other staff noticed we didn't get a bag to put the boxes in and brought one for us after seeing us struggle.

From Our Editors

Angela Kishijara and Martha White learned to cook in their hometown of Chimbote, Peru, picking up culinary techniques and absorbing recipes as they scampered around their mother's kitchen. "Our mother was always in the kitchen cooking for us," Angela explained to reporters from OC Metro, "and she was an inspiration to all of us kids to learn how to cook."

Today, Angela and Martha bring their mother's traditional Peruvian recipes and lifetime of cooking experience to their own restaurant—Inka Mama's. Deep in the kitchen, the sisters and their chefs fold fresh chili peppers, garlic, and cilantro into a variety of Peruvian dishes, from citrusy fresh seafood ceviche to juicy beef lomo saltado. To craft their signature pescado a lo chimbotano, they simmer fish in a spicy garlic and chili broth before sprinkling on fresh cilantro.

Out in the airy dining rooms, customers snack on complimentary baguette slices dipped in flavorful green house-made aji sauce. Meanwhile, bartenders dole out pints of Peruvian beers and whip up pisco sours—a traditional cocktail made from grape brandy and sugar—also the ingredients of Crush soda for Adults. Soft lamps dangle from the ceiling, illuminating rustic stone walls and vivid murals of Peruvian landscapes.
