We love Peruvian Food and thankfully Portland has had a mini-explosion of Peruvian restaurants in the last couple of years. The Peruvian food we have had is much less tortilla/bean/meat focused than Mexican food, as well as much healthier and lighter, with an innovative use of seafood. del INTI utilizes Pacific Northwest ingredients and adds a nouveau South American twists to its dishes  - a match made in heaven in our opinion. This was a small sampling of our meal and with a menu that changes almost daily, we'll be back!
