Peruvian Chef Fernando Gabriel Soeda is introducing Chiang Mai’s foodies to the unique flavours of Japanese-Peruvian cuisine. In the late 19th century, when a large number of Japanese workers migrated to Peru in search of gold, they realised that the two nations had much in common, notably Peru’s 2,000 kilometre coastline, which meant that seafood was just as plentiful as back home in Japan.
Thus Nikkei-Peruvian cuisine was born, an amalgamation of Peruvian ingredients and Japanese cooking techniques.
If you are a Nikkei-Peruvian virgin, then start off with a river prawn with antichuchos sauce with its bold flavours or the tuna maki aceivichado sauce which is inspired by the classic California maki but instead filled with tuna fried along with an assortment of aromatic ingredients such as butter, garlic and chili. Another dish we enjoyed was the Barramundi glazed with Peruvian miso sauce and garlicky mashed potatoes.
