London’s Peruvian Restaurant Scene
Team Offbeat | 24 Aug

Forget pizzas and burgers this bank holiday weekend. Instead, get yourself to one of London’s popular Peruvian restaurants. Here’s all you need to know.

Londoners are more health conscious than ever and Peruvian food’s wholefoods credentials make it a popular choice. A diverse history, as a result of centuries of immigration and a combination of cultures and cuisines, make Peruvian cuisine the ultimate fusion food.

Cosmopolitan influences paired with native ingredients and traditions make for an eclectic union bursting with flavour. Spanish, African, Italian, Chinese and Japanese fusions can clearly be seen in dishes such as ‘Ceviche’ – citrus-marinated raw fish similar to Japanese Sashimi and ‘Chifa’ – Peruvian-Chinese food.

Foreign influences aside, Peruvian food is very diverse, owing credit to Peru’s rich biodiversity. Ingredients are sourced from the Andes, the Amazon and the Pacific coast and include thousands of varieties of potatoes, chillies and corn.

Ceviche, Soho

Bringing Peruvian cuisine to a mainstream audience, Ceviche was a first of its kind to bring to London authentic and affordable Latin American delicacies with dishes from Peru’s coast and its capital, Lima. Obviously, Ceviche features prominently on the menu in the form of marinated raw sea bass, but don’t overlook the sticky Rocoto Chicken wings and the best Pisco Sours you’ll find in the Capital. Ceviche’s vibrant brand identity is inspired by Lima street art and graphic signage whilst the interior has an energetic yet laid-back atmosphere.

Mommi, Clapham

This large corner site with outdoor area, prominent central bar counter and open kitchen is Clapham’s answer to casual Peruvian dining. The interior has a classy bar vibe with intimate booth seating, ambient lighting and gold detailing. The menu features a raw section as well as small dishes including Peruvian tree-ripened Botija olives and Nikkei tempura fish & chips. Cocktails with exotic twists feature heavily on the menu with our favourite being a ‘Bloody Pisco’ – Peru’s take on the Bloody Mary – made with soy, wasabi and a choice of not one, but three different types of chilli.

Embrace London’s love for Peruvian cuisine. Consider spicing up your brunch menu with Peruvian avocado and grilled sourdough or a nutritious quinoa salad served with a side of corn tortillas and Padron peppers – delicious!
