An outlet for intriguing ingredients, not least because the owners own a parallel food import business, bringing in multi-coloured Peruvian chillies, dried herbs, sun-dried potatoes and sauce mixes. All of these are on sale in one corner of this vividly decorated eatery, with food to match: yellow and red chillies, yellow, white and purple corn plus Peruvian herbal teas and Inca Cola.


House specials include tamales (fluffy steamed corn meal parcels), aji de gallina (shredded chicken stew) and lamb braised with fat Peruvian corn and sweetish pieces of ulloco (a yam-like Andean vegetable). If there's no live music when you visit, lift the ambience with some BYO pisco, the definitive Peruvian firewater.
