Ceviche Ecuatoriano

A ceviche with the flavours of Ecuador

Inspired by Ecuador itself, we created this special ceviche with fresh sea bass, tamarillo, onion, lime and chillies.

Encebollado

A taste of fresh seafood with an earthy Amazonian flare

This hearty fish stew is regarded as one of the national dishes of Ecuador. It is made with tuna, cassava ‘yuca’ and pickled onion.

Hornado

Slow roasted Ecuadorian pork belly

With 12 hours slow roasting in-house, hornado is a succulent pork roast popular in the highlands of Ecuador.

Pudín de Quinoa

Our own creamy quinoa pudding creation

The personal creation of Chef Jorge Pacheco, this sweet pudding made from Andean quinoa, coconut cream, caramelised sugar is served alongside a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Patacones

Fried plantain patties with course sea salt

These mashed plantains are fried and lightly salted with course sea salt. They are the perfect accompaniment to almost any Ecuadorian dish.

What our customers say...

First time ever eating Ecuadorian food and this place did not disappoint. Family run place on Essex Road. Had the ceviche, moto pillo, pork belly and fish stew. All dishes very tasty and well presented. Very attentive waiter. Will definitely return.

El Inca is highly recommended!! Extremely friendly and welcoming hosts. Chef Jorge and Luis are genuinely pleasant people in a creative cosy place. The food is top notch and reasonably priced. Great experience!

Bartdeco

We stumbled upon El Inca last night whilst walking down Essex Rd and were welcomed in and guided through the menu by the very friendly owner, Jorge. All the food was great (the fish stew in particular was incredible) and the seabass tiradito was also delightful. Would highly recommend for anybody who wants to try some authentic Ecuadorean food!
