If you try something new, you might really enjoy it, even if it's filling balloons with Hot Wheels and throwing them off a bridge to see if they'll float. Try some Peruvian fare with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of traditional Peruvian delicacies at El Inti Peruvian Cuisine in Sandy.
El Inti bestows Salt Lake City residents with the radiating gift of authentic South American fare. Test traditional dishes such as aji de gallina, a nutty cream with shredded chicken made from milk, aji amarillo, walnuts, bread, and parmesan cheese ($9), or nourish vegetarianism with the arroz chaufa, made with rice, ginger, garlic, egg, and soy ($9). For dessert, open the door on mouth-cages and let the mazamorra morada—a pudding made from apples, pineapple, and dried fruit—crawl in. Complementing the zesty meals, a fresh juice bar serves fruit smoothies and specialty concoctions such as the chica morada, blended with purple corn, lime, and pineapple. To keep guests entertained as they partake in Peruvian plates, El Inti hosts live music and nightly astrophysics lectures to explain the unique Incan sun-making process.
- You don't need to know Incan mythology to enjoy wonderful dishes such as ensalada andina, arroz chaufa, lomo saltado, seco and tallarin, Enjoy an exotic drink from the fresh juice bar and picarones for dessert. El Inti is also vegan and vegetarian-friendly. – Salt Lake City Weekly
- Flavors were bright, pastas were cooked perfectly al-dente (yes, Peruvian food includes pasta!) , and the deserts were tasty. Even the presentation of our meals was excellent and plated beautifully. – Betsy H., Yelp, 2/18/11
