With its exotic Peruvian dishes and the exclusive events, Coya London is the place to be. This restaurant was born from a spirit of adventure. It’s the research of different flavors and cuisines. And they all merge here, at this chic hotspot.
Finding Perù in London
The idea of Coya London is to create contemporary gastronomy, in which every ingredient connects. It’s a link of cultures too. The concept behind this restaurant mixes Incan heritage and Spanish gastronomy. Here, Japanese and Chinese influences meet with the Peruvian pisco sour. The result?
A unique dining experience. In an even more unique setting. Or settings, plural. Because Coya London has two locations in the capital. One is the Mayfair, while the other is the Angel Court. The former is an elegant location. It’s filled with golden and wooden details, with granite tables and comfortable, suede chairs. While the latter feature an open kitchen, a chic Ceviche bar, and heavy curtains.
At both places, you can find huge collections of tequila and rum bottles. Actually, it’s over 40 tequila bottles. Both of them have a lively atmosphere to remind you of Latin America. You can find all the spices, from coconut to chocolate, all the way to lime. It’s a fusion all right.
Healthy & delicious at Coya London
The ceviche is the specialty of this restaurant. But there are many other options, for all palates. As its website says, “we experiment with traditional Peruvian dishes and using Japanese, Chinese and Spanish cooking techniques.” This translates into a seasonal, healthy, and fusion gastronomy. Unique, indeed. And the menu reflects it.
You can start with the Chilean sea bass croquettes and then move to the main course. Perhaps the Peruvian sashimi, like the Yellowtail with green chilli. If you don’t feel like Japanese, try the tacos. Furthermore, vegetarians can try one of the many salads. For example, the Quinoa de Invierno is especially delicious -since it comes with grapefruit, beetroot, and passion fruit.
In addition, don’t forget to order one of the cocktails or typical, special churros.
