Peru on fire! We sneak into the kitchens of the best Peruvian restaurants in Madrid


Reading time 7 minutes

Something happens in the letters of the restaurants that do not stop showing off their "ceviches de corvina" and their "pisco sour"; something happens that for a few years, Peru invades some lost line of these menus, whatever type they are.

The best ceviches in Spain

Peruvian cuisine is in the mouth and on the table of the cuisine of our country for years but perhaps now is when we truly enjoy it and value it as it deserves . These restaurants are the epitome of Peruvian cuisine in Madrid; they are the ones that for years (or with their recent openings) have put Peru on the palate of the most exquisite locals.

We have knocked on the doors of their kitchens to know … what is cooked in Peru?

Oscar Malpartida is one of the proper names that has renewed and revolutionized Peruvian cuisine in Madrid . He started with Tiradito and Chambi and with Barra / M, his third place (and penultimate, Luma just opened) closed his success betting on fun and a casual letter that, for the most part, is prepared in his long bar before the eyes of the diner

Malpartida leaves the tradition of the gastronomy of his country to go further in the fusion that already characterizes it. He has ceviche thai, gyozas chilangas, tempuras, chow fun noodles … His creativity has no limits to continue to grab from all the kitchens of the world what he likes and serve it in original proposals. Unique in Madrid.

“Peruvian tapas and pisco bar ” is the subtitle of this restaurant, the last (pen) Peruvian who arrived in Madrid wanting to renew the idea of Andean cuisine and, above all, determined to change the experience: to Quispe He goes to lunch and dinner, to try traditional dishes, but in Quispe you also stay for his drinks .

Quispe is a restaurant and is a bar. Álex Vargas is in charge of the letter, “clear and direct” that is divided into hot and cold cuisine; and Izael Ramos designs the cocktails, among which, of course, pisco sour triumphs.

They designed and created it as "a place you don't want to leave" and in the few months it has been open it has penetrated the city.

Ceviches and anticuchos . The name of La Cevicuchería is born from two of the most popular and street dishes in Peru. And as he announces, the ceviches and the anticuchos are the stars of the second restaurant that opened in Madrid the young Peruvian chef, Miguel Ángel Valdiviezo, after the success of Tampu .

If Tampu is “innovation and tradition, ” Cevicuchería is, above all, tradition . It is where Valdiviezo pulls memories, memories of seeing his "nana" in the kitchen, and everything he learned from his teacher, Mrs. Gloria Hinostroza, at the Cordon Bleu school.

From La Cevicuchería, Miguel Ángel Valdiviezo wants to transport diners to fishmongers and to the streets of Lima with grills of very high llamas. Smells, flavors and colors of a unique cuisine, away from the busiest Madrid .

Welcome to the second oldest Peruvian restaurant in Spain. The one that has been open for the longest time in Europe. On April 24 of this year, El Inti de Oro celebrated 27 years in Madrid . And León Carrillo follows his controls. Not only one, but two stores in the capital.

The new Inti de Oro is a larger, more luminous space with a larger kitchen that opens even more room for cold dishes. He has added a cevichera bar from which more classic ceviches come out and others with a small turn, like that of hot sea bass.

But from its main kitchen, the most traditional, well-made dishes that have led them to take almost three decades as leaders in Madrid continue to emerge: the chili pepper, the sauteed loin, the chaufa rice … Peruvian cuisine is fusion by definition and here it has always been been like that.
