New to Acland Street in the animated suburb of St Kilda, the Buena Vista Peruvian Kitchen is where authentic cuisine is brought to life in colours and flavours.

What characterises the Peruvian gastronomy? “Ceviche”, “Criollos”, “Chifa”, “Delicias de las Calles” may sound like popular Spanish or Mexican dishes. “People often think that all the countries of South America cook the same dishes. The cuisine is different everywhere and has its own tradition according to the country,” says Daisy Garcia, the owner of the restaurant.

With the different invasions throughout its History, the Peruvian cuisine has developed a smart mix of Spanish and Asian cooking traditions. Japanese raw fish is heavily present on the menu as well as noodles, rice and tapas. The delicious dish “Causa de Langostinos”, featuring prawns, potato, avocado, lime, yellow chili and mayonnaise is the perfect example of the fusion of these different cultures.

Including meat like chicken or pork, seafood, and vegetables such as potatoes or corn, Buena Vista proposes a gourmet cuisine without pretension. It is authentic, well-presented and delightful. From their signature dish “Ceviche”, which includes local raw fish, seafood, sweet potato, chilli, corn and lemon, to the “Rosco Marisco” – spicy rice with shellfish – the cuisine provides an explosion of flavours in the mouth with intense perfumes.

Fresh delivered products from the region guarantee the quality of the dishes, and other products directly imported from Peru ensure the authenticity in the kitchen, like the famous Peruvian chilli peppers called “Rocoto” and “Aji”, essential daily basis products.
