Londonrestaurant Lima was the first Peruvian restaurant to win a Michelin star, which says it all really. The intimate restaurant, located in Fitzrovia isn’t as blinging as your usual London fine dining restaurants but the food speaks volumes.
We went along recently to see just what we had been missing. The meal itself was pretty flawless; Sea Bream Tiradito was a vibrant dish, both to look at and taste, Scallop Tiradito was cleverly arranged so that the bright orange sauce rested on the white scallops to make it look like the coral whilst the tender Octopus Olivo served with quinoa, Bojita olive and red shiso was bursting with flavour.
Beef Pachamanca was more of the same, perfectly presented and full of flavour but we have to admit we weren’t overly keen on the Cacao Porcelana dessert, best skip that and have another Pisco Sour instead. Lima fully deserves its rep and we’d like to apologise now to our instagram followers – Every single dish is picture perfect and well worth a share, yes that’s right all six of ’em.
