P A C H A M A M A


Earlier this week we tried something a little bit different…Something…South American

A short walk from Selfridges, down on Thayer street you will find a doorway to a beautiful, airy, Capricious Peruvian-British restaurant named Pachamama.
 {If you want to see our trip in video form vlogged it here}


We went for a spot of brunch as its a beautifuly lit, tucked away little mid-day food spot.
It was one of the hardest menus to choose from! There were some foods which I had never heard of but the accommodating waiters are quick to explain everything to us and give their personal recommendations.
They do small plates and bigger plates – Perfectly designed to share around your group or if you are a bit of a ‘Joey‘ like us, then a small plate and a large plate to yourself will work just fine.

I went for the Salmon, beetroot & Avocado Ceviche & The Smoked Brisket, Plantain Hash, aji HP
Jason went for the Pan Con Chicharron (Voted London’s best burger) & Prawn, squid, Quinoa Chaufa (Chaufa: A Peruvian fried rice dish)

Now I know I get excited about things very often, but that doesn’t mean that I’m overselling anything or blowing things out of proportion – The Smoked brisket was one of the TASTIEST meals I have had in London, It was extremely soft, the flavour was so rich and tangy, what topped it off was the Plantain.
Growing up with a Guyanese family/grandmother, I have such fond memories of her cooking and the smells that would emanate from the kitchen. This juicy plantain brought it all back. (Its hidden under the sauce in the picture.)

Jason gave very good reports from over from his burger, he says it was delicious, the only thing wrong was that there was Coriander inside and this reminds me, I had to pick out some coriander from the dishes too as it is one of the only tastes I despise!
So if you’re like us then just be sure to ask for it to be prepared without Coriander as most of it was only on the top or easy to take out anyway.

I tried some of Jasons Quinoa Chacha too and it was extremely tasty, such a healthy yet totally satisfying lunch dish.
I also have to give a little shoutout to the ‘Regents Park’ Rum-based cocktail, divine!

I am itching to go back to Pachamama, The place is so exciting for the senses, even just to look at. It is such a beautiful location with a main room but also little rooms tucked away for more private meals or drinks.

Thank you for having us!
