Hot on the heels of the flurry of South American restaurant openings in London comes Pisqu, a Peruvian restaurant dishing up cuisine native to its capital city, Lima.
Boasting Japanese, Spanish and Chinese influences, Pisqu’s menu is a tribute to natural ingredients indigenous to the Andes and Amazon. There’ll be aji peppers, yuca, Peruvian potatoes and a whole host of South American herbs we’ve barely even heard of - camu and cedron, or maca and achiote anyone?
Signature dishes at Pisqu will include its chicharron - confit pork belly with sweet potato and rocoto pepper sauce, or lomo a la parilla steak served with corn grain cake. Nab one of the counter seats and watch your chef plate up their warm ceviche in spicy yellow aji. Pisco sour in hand, naturally.
