The Inkan serves big portions of Latin American food in two separate spaces on the same street corner - a small dining room and a separate bar area with TVs. Peruvian dishes occupy a large portion of the menu, so expect plenty of seafood and ceviche, but plan to direct your attention on the rotisserie chicken, their specialty. We'd recommend making a meal of the half chicken ($7.50) and some plantains. This is also one of the few spots in the city where you can get a solid pisco sour, best enjoyed during nice weather in the restaurant’s enclosed backyard.

La Isla Cuchifritos
We love La Isla Cuchifritos for the fact that a) it’s cheap and delicious, and b) it sort of feels like you’re grubbing in tropical Puerto Rico rather than not-so-tropical Brooklyn.
