Top 10 Peruvian restaurants

30th January, 2014 by Lauren Eads

On Saturday Peru will celebrate its national drink – the pisco sour – with a public holiday. In honour of this tradition, we have rounded up some of London’s best Peruvian restaurants to enjoy a pisco and ceviche.

The Pisco Sour is typical of south American cuisine but was first invented by American bartender, Victor Vaughen, in the capital of Peru, Lima, where it remains a time-honoured tradition.

The classic Peruvian cocktail is made by mixing pisco – a base spirit – with citrus juice, hence the ‘sour’, syrup, ice, egg white and Angostura bitters.

In contrast, the Chilean version uses Chilean pisco and pica lime, and excludes the bitters and egg white.

Both of the south American countries claim the pisco sour as their national drink – however Peru celebrates their creation with a national holiday on the first Saturday of February.

Scroll through for some of London’s best Peruvian restaurants.
