What they say:
Martin Morales - famous for his Peruvian hot spots across the city - has opened his newest venue in Notting Hill, boasting not just a restaurant and bar, but the city’s first Peruvian bakery too. The two sites are paying tribute to Andina women chefs who inspired him to open his other super-successful venues too. Channelling a traditional picanteria, the chefs are at the centre of the restaurant, with an open kitchen and a home-style chef’s table, all while Peruvian contemporary art squares the theme solely on the South American country with vibrancy and colour.
What we say:
The restaurant bar plans to be an all-day eatery with food at the centre. Expect ancient Andes recipes given a London-brand update, with small plates like sivinche, which is a take on ceviche, as well as Olluco potato locro, broad beans and roast pumpkin. You can also enjoy sharing feasts with the mouth-watering braised adobo pork leg and 80 day aged Herdford sirloin, washed down by some delicious pisco-based cocktails. Meanwhile, that Peruvian bakery has specialised breads like Andean black mint and sweet potato sourdough, as well as coffees, teas, juices and smoothies.
