New Food store in Newtown: Mistura Latin Quarter
Inner city dwellers and Peruvian food lovers will rejoice as a new food store is now open on King Street. Specialising in Latin American products, Mistura Latin Quarter offers a wide range of Peruvian food products, from ingredients to prepare traditional Peruvian dishes, to popular Peruvian sweet treats like Turron de Doña Pepa. They take online orders and offer delivery as well!
A few weeks ago Peruvian Ambassador to Australia, H.E. Vitaliano Gallardo (pictured above, left) payed a visit to Latin Quarter and left with an excellent impression.
We want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the entrepreneurial spirit of Peruvians when venturing to start an SME, particularly the Peruvian family-owned businesses in Australia, which have with much effort managed to overcome the global pandemic and other challenges the rest of Australian businesses also face.

We ordered all the tapas-style entrées like the classic ceviche and the tuna sashimi.
For dessert the sigh of Lucuma (Suspiro a la Limeña) is an unmissable treat!
Big round of applause and congratulations for the head chef Hector Chunga.
Foodies of NSW, Warike will quickly become your new fave go-to.
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.
