Peruvian cuisine is among the most diverse in the world, as evidenced by the fact that Peru has the largest number of dishes (491) and, according to several understandings, has a level equivalent to French, Chinese and Indian food. It is the very definition of fusion cooking, mixing influences from lands as diverse as Spain and Europe, the Caribbean, Asia and Africa, plus the wide range of local traditions, including a costal love affair with fish and seafood, the hearty potato and corn dishes of the highlands and the steamy tropical traditions of the jungle.
Tierra Peru was born in 2010 as Aji del mono, a little market stall in Camden town. It was the first step in realising our dream to share with Londoners a little bit about Peruvian culture. The smell of anticuchos grilling over charcoal, the steam from the banana leaves encasing the tamalitos attracted locals and Peruvians alike, and their palates were tantalised by the wonderful flavours of our cuisine.
Now, Tierra Peru builds on our days in the market bringing you a selection of some of the best of Peruvian cuisine. The traditional food served in a modern, relaxed atmosphere will make you feel like you could be dining in the centre of Lima.
Hearty food made with lots of flavour, love and passion…
