Callao by Yuriko Sung
Last Saturday we tried Yuriko Sung's Callao catering and we can tell you it did not disappoint!
For an autumn soirée in Sydney, we were delighted by the set menu that included causa with crispy prawns and huancaína sauce, mushroom ceviche, tiradito (sashimi style slices of fish marinated in a chili-citrus sauce) and ají de gallina (Peruvian chicken stew in a yellow pepper sauce) ). For dessert, we had suspiro a la limeña (Dulce de Leche and liqueur meringue). Absolutely delicious. If you are thinking of inviting some friends or family over for dinner and want to dazzle them, Yuriko is the one to call.
Visit to Warike
Our Consul-General Ms Eliana Beraun payed a visit to pop-up restaurant Warike in Surry Hills. Every Sunday Luis Guzman and Chef Yuriko offer a traditional Peruvian menu.
We tasted yuquitas (fried cassava), a classic cebiche and Lomo Saltado. Food pairing?
Pisco Sour and Chilcano, of course!
Nikkei's venue is only a stone's throw from Central Station. Luis has plans to turn Warike into a permanent restaurant, so stay tuned for more.
Visit to Pepito's
29 November 2020
Consul-General Eliana Beraun showed up at Pepito's to try the tapas-style taberna. Here, you can expect to find a reinterpretation of some of the Peruvian street-food classics: Leche de Tigre, Anticuchos (ox heart skewers, but at Pepito's you can also find the vegan version of it), Papa a la Huancaina and more!
If you've ever been in Lima, Peru, you'll find Pepito's atmosphere similar to that of the cool bohemian neighbourhood of Barranco.
