On Wednesday 5th October, Pisqu London opened its doors to introduce their new Peruvian restaurant on Rathbone Place, London.
The lovely owner of Pisqu, Yuko Gil invited me to her restaurant launch in London, near Soho. Pisqu specialise in Peruvian superfood dishes; the food is fresh, clean, and vibrant. They are also vegetarian and gluten free friendly which means no one gets left out!
When it comes to presentation, Peruvian native and Head Chef, William Ortiz has food styling at the top of his priorities with every dish looking just as delicious as the last.
Yuko Gil, has studied food science and is a qualified nutritionist combined her knowledge and the love of her husband’s native food to create the mouth watering menu, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Not only does Pisqu offer authentic Amazonian food, they have put together a fine beverages list with traditional wines and cocktails to compliment the food. I tried the “Pisqu Sour Clasico”, which is made with the long-established Peruvian spirit, Pisco along with egg whites and lime juice; a very light and refreshing cocktail and costs around £7.50.
Want to indulge in your sweet tooth cravings without the guilt? Rest assured Pisqu have that covered too, I had the “Purple corn ice cream” which is made from natural extracts of purple corn, inca corn and almond milk served on a bed of nuts which is light weight like a sorbet, but creamy like an ice cream without the calories – winning!
If you’re looking for an intimate setting with live music for dinner, or a super clean breakfast for when you’re on the go, head down to Pisqu where Yuko and husband Coco Gil, will make you feel at home – Peruvian style, of course.
