For authentic Peruvian food with a contemporary twist, book a table at Lima, a one Michelin star restaurant situated two minutes from Tottenham Court Road Tube station in Fitzrovia and several spacious Fitzrovia properties. The experienced and enthusiastic team at this award-winning restaurant believe that gastronomic luxury is something which is ‘natural, indigenous and unique’. If you like clean, contemporary food with flavours of Peru, Lima is definitely worth seeking out.
Flavour is a combination of taste plus many other sensations and factors such as aroma, texture, juiciness, sensation or 'feel' of the food on the tongue - even colour adds to the experience. At Lima you will experience it all from the moment your waiter wafts the artistically plated food in front of you.
Begin your culinary journey to the Amazon with Lomo Steak Huancaina, made from Beef Loin with Yellow Aji Sauce and Coriander Cress. Fans of freshwater fish will love the Black Bream Ceviche (Avocado, Sweet Potato and Aji Limo are among the ingredients), while the Asparagus Causa with Aji Amarillo is perfect for vegetarians.
For a main course, order the Red Mullet Hot Ceviche, a seafood medley of Red Mullet, Rocoto Pepper, Tiger’s Milk and Corn Cake. Alternatively, sample the local favourite Duck Nisei served with Green Rice, Ginger, Tamarind and Peruvian Corn Beer. For a light side salad try the Quinoa Solterito Salad or Baby Spinach, Fresh Cheese and Pomegranate.
For dessert, Kay & Co recommend asking for several spoons and diving into the Chirimoya Parfait Amazonian Chocolate with blue potato crisps and the Suspiro Ardiente. The combination of silky cream and sweet meringue in the Banana Cream, Port and Crispy Meringue is dreamy and delicious. Try the refreshing Guava Ice Cream, Yellow Corn Crisps with Beetroot Crisps. If you’re still craving chocolate, the Avocado Mousse with 75% chocolate is another winner.
So, you’ve enjoyed a working lunch or a romantic meal at Lima and fancy trying something else on the menu. Head back for their weekend brunch; it’s a hit with locals in Fitzrovia and maybe a reason why nearby apartments to rent in Fitzrovia are sought after. The restaurant is open 7 days a week, including Sunday for dinner. On weekdays, they offer a two and three course Express Lunch.
Lima hires out its bar and restaurant for cocktail receptions, corporate dining and private parties. If you’re searching for a place to organize a grand celebration for your anniversary or to celebrate a project win with your team, Lima will provide a truly memorable experience.
