The World's Best Peruvian Places Outside Peru
A stunning Peruvian dish served up by Melbourne restaurant Pastuso.
Founded 10 years ago, Lima undoubtedly serves the best Peruvian cuisine in the UK. Order the tasting menu with scallop tostada, sea bream ceviche, beef tartare causa and suckling pig. If you prefer it less formal, book at sister restaurant Floral: same owner, same quality.
Opened late last year, this is the Peruvian in-place at Pigalle. A tapas and cocktail bar with live South American music and a restaurant with spicy guacamole and lots of ceviche. Go for the king shrimp ceviche with coconut and pineapple and plantain fritters filled with pulled veal.
In an Art Nouveau palazzo, a stone’s throw from Piazza del Popolo, one can find fine dining at its best. Start at the Pisco bar and then enjoy nikkei tapas and tacos – in winter in the magnificent dining hall, in summer on the patio next to the swimming pool. Pacifico also has outlets in Milan and Porto Cervo, Sardinia.
If you prefer an intimate place and great cooking, join Peruvian chef Omar and his Spanish wife Carlotta in this small, lively spot in Berlin’s centre, either at the open kitchen bar or at one of the ten tables. Enjoy lots of seafood and a tender pork belly in Cognac jus.
The owner is Swiss, the chef is Peruvian. Of course, you can order ceviche, tiraditos and chicken – but the vegetarian samplers are the sensation here: coriander stew with mushrooms, pickles, corncake or crispy marinated aubergine cubes with pecan nuts.
The best Peruvian restaurant in Spain – in the heart of Salamanca. Wooden tables, impeccable design and great food. Order raw scallop in cream made with coconut, chilli and jungle turmeric to whet your appetite, then sea bass with leche de tigre in a nest of green plantain. Spectacular.
Coya promises to bring the spirit of the Incas to the Middle East – and it delivers: from patata frita (sweet potato with tamarind, soy and mint) to rey congrejo (Josper grilled King crab with red miso and ajo) and pollo a la parilla (poussin with co- riander). You also find Coya in Abu Dhabi and Doha.
Close to the botanic gardens, this oasis of calm is waiting to be discovered. Try the five-course tasting menu which features Peruvian highlights like ceviche clásico, arroz con mariscos and conchinito criollo.
Cocktail bar to the left, private dining to the right plus a room with 100 covers at the end – an impressive Peruvian place with a Shanghai accent. Enjoy dinner, but leave room for Eduardo’s special flan for dessert, offered in all of his nine Shanghai restaurants.
Nikkei Bar & Restaurant
Small, but impressive quality in Surry Hills – take a seat at the sushi bar or at the communal table. Most nikkei dishes are served tapas-style. Order octopus ceviche, Hokkaido scallop, potato croquettes, pork rib eye and dulce de leche ice cream – all served family-style to share.
Street food and ceviches are central to chef Samuel Riva’s cooking in this restaurant gem close to the Yarra River and Docklands. Stick to the Feast of the Andes menu and get a taste of sea, mountain and jungle produce – start or finish with one of the eleven Pisco cocktails.
Starting out with a string of small ceviche bars, chef Luis Chavez has finally opened his first sit-down restaurant on the Upper East Side. Of course, ceviche is central to the menu, but don’t miss out on the arroz con mariscos or the seco norteno, delicious short ribs with coriander sauce.
This Peruvian gem hides in suburban San Francisco, specialising in serving tapas-sized delicacies mostly from the nearby Pacific. Don’t miss their famous ceviche mixto with red snapper, mussels, clam, shrimp, red onions, rocoto peppers, coriander and lime. It tastes as good as it sounds.
Chef Gastón Acurio has created his most enjoyable restaurant outside of Peru here at Biscayne Bay, with an unbeatable sea view. Everything you dreamed about Peruvian cuisine is on the menu – from ceviche and tiradito to empanada and a jumbo tiger shrimp with anticuchera sauce, chimichurri and yellow potatoes.
Mimi’s Peruvian Cuisine
This place, close to Ala Moana beach is run by the eponymous Mimi, a Peru national who knows how to do ceviche and – if seafood is not enough – arroz con pollo, the famous coriander chicken.
