Carne Emp.

We came across this place completely by chance while walking through downtown Encinitas. I lived in Quito Ecuador for nearly 10 years (many years ago) and so it's been quite some time since I've had the pleasure of having any food from South America. I noticed some people outside eating the carne empanadas and I immediately knew I had to have one. Let me just say this, from the first bite it instantly transported me back. It was phenomenal and spot on with the flavor and texture I had remembered from many years ago. We have since been back a few times to try various items on the menu and all I can say is if you're looking for an authentic south american restaurant, then look no further! This place is fantastic! Great food, great service, and great ambiance. 10/10!

Whole Tres Leches (S)

This is our family's go-to cake for birthdays and all special occasions. As usual, it was sublime. The smiling faces at pickup always make ordering from Q'ero an extra special experience. Thank you!

Calamari a La Diablada

Calamari Diablo was surprisingly delicious and their sauces are truly exceptional. A favorite place of ours for years for a weekend lunch

Aji De Gallina

Phenomenal. The aji is one of my favorite dishes and you can never go wrong with it. Always order alfajores for dessert :)

TakeAndBake 6 Emp.

Q'ero's empanadas are simply the BEST! They are handmade with a dough that is so light and tasty. I especially love the vegetarian ones but I can also recommend the carne and chicken empanadas for you meat-lovers. These make a great take-out meal, and can be easily frozen for another meal later. Plus, the Panqa sauce adds that Peruvian flavor that isn't available from the grocery store. My #1 to-go restaurant food. Q'ero is a small, multi-generational family business well worth supporting here in Encinitas. Oh and don't forget to add their Chi-chi ________ mashed corn drink. Sorry, I forget the name, just ask about it - so refreshing!

Hot n' Ready Empanadas 12 pack

These empanadas are to die for!!! Everyone who attended our event was raving about them and asked where they were from continuously. The hot sauce that comes with it is also on another level, we just can't seem to get enough... its THAT good!

Papa Rellena

This is a Peruvian classic that is very well done at Qero. I've tried making them on my own and it's never quite the same texture! Always a great starter

Carne Emp.

Everything was amazing. The calamari, empanadas, sangria, and lomo saltado never let me down. This place is a staple in the community for a reason!
