Peruvian cuisine is making waves in the Mother City, and it’s thanks to Charango, the cool Latin American eatery that opened on Bree Street not so long ago. The super-stylish interiors are the perfect canvas for the bold, flavourful dishes created by head chef Kieran Whyte, whose Japanese-Peruvian menu is all about sharing.
If you’re after oversized American-style portions, you’ve come to the wrong place. This is finger food with a capital F – also known as tapas – designed to allow you to taste as many flavours and textures as possible.
So what’s Peruvian food anyway?
Also known as Nikkei cuisine, it’s the latest gastronomic sensation to hit culinary capitals. Peru’s unique blend of indigenous, Spanish, African, Chinese, Japanese and Italian cookery traditions makes it utterly unique, not to mention flavourful and layered. Think fresh fish (Japanese) combined with corn, ají peppers, yuca, potatoes and, in Charango’s case, a host of creative flourishes.
Are you keen to experience this delicious mix of cultures, flavours and textures? Well, now’s your chance. The Inside Guide is giving away a dinner for you and three friends at this superb Peruvian eatery.
