Pop-up Peruvian restaurant returns to Peterborough…
A pop-up Peruvian restaurant experience returns to Peterborough on Thursday April 3 at 7.30pm.
Local foodies can look forward to a traditional Peruvian feast using authentic South American ingredients. Peruvian food has been called ‘the next big’ thing by the BBC and The Economist dubbed the country’s capital Lima ‘a gastronomic mecca’.
The pop-up experience is being bought to Peterborough by two locals, Peruvian born Christian Castillo and head chef Kristina Balaseviciene. The restaurant has been taking place once a month since it first launched in May last year.
The pop-up events give Christian a welcome opportunity to share a little bit of Peruvian cuisine and culture, “So far the pop up events have been a great success,” he says. “People have enjoyed trying out something a bit different. Peruvians love their food and all the dishes tend to have rich, interesting flavours.”
There are a range of traditional dishes with a modern twist on the menu for Thursday April 3 including, to start, Peru’s most famous dish, Ceviche – hake marinated in lime juice with red onion, sweet potato, Peruvian corn and Rocoto peppers. There is an alternative starter of Asparagus with Andean cheese and Aji Amarillo sauce.
For the main course, diners can expect slow cooked pork and Peruvian dry potato with Panca stew, or king prawns in a creamy Amarillo Sauce. The vegetarian option is quinoa with mixed vegetables and saffron.
Dessert is a chirimoya fruit cheesecake, and all diners will get a traditional Peruvian cocktail, a Pisco Sour, with their meal.
The pop-up Peruvian experience costs £25 per person for a three course meal and a Peruvian cocktail. The evening is held at Club Caliante in Parnwell, Peterborough where plenty of free parking is provided.
