To celebrate Inca’s delicious new menu, we have a one-off, personalised dining experience to give away

Since it opened in Ponsonby Central, serving unique dishes that fused South American with Japanese fusion influences, Inca has become one of our favourite go-to spots for a delicious meal. Whether it’s a satiating weekend brunch we’re seeking, a convivial lunch with friends or a dinner that promises to delight every time, Inca always delivers. And now, the popular eatery is expanding its culinary offering with a raft of exciting new dishes that you simply need to try — whether you’re a regular or not.

Here, Inca’s Owner and Head Chef, Nic Watt, has created dishes that play with fascinating and delicious flavour combinations. Those who love tasty bites will definitely gravitate towards the black cod and prawn ‘twisted’ spring rolls, served with a delicious black vinegar and sesame dipping sauce, while those seeking something with a fresh twist will be delighted by the five-spiced crispy duck leg and watermelon salad, topped with hoisin lime, mint, coriander and sunflower seeds. The soft-shell crab with a corn crust is also a particularly delectable option, served with yuzu koshu mayo. And for anyone harbouring a sweet tooth, Inca has added a new dessert of Billy Scott Farm strawberries that have been ember-caramelised and served with basil pistachio ice cream and lime meringue — the perfect combination of sweet, tart and utterly indulgent.
