SquareMeal Review of Tierra Peru

Peru’s heavily hyped culinary invasion of the capital is concentrated in ‘W’ postcodes, so it’s refreshing to see this Islington outpost bringing its distinctive flavours to a wider audience. Tierra Peru started out as a market stall in Camden before moving here and morphing into a smart little eatery pointed up with black furniture, striking wall art and designer crockery. Ceviches naturally figure among the starters, but also look for skewered anticuchos, tamalitos wrapped in banana leaves and zingy marinated tiraditos. Mains also ring true, from majarisco (mashed green plantain mixed with seafood) to chicharrones (deep-fried pork with sweet potato chips and salsa criolla). The drinks list includes a handful of South American wines Cuzueña beer and various indigenous cocktails – not only the obligatory pisco sours, but also algarrobina (based on black carob syrup).

Amazing restaurant
09 September 2015  
We were debating on where to take our clients, who incidentally are pretty cool and fun so decided on Tierra Peru based on the recommendation of our pa. The place is a tiny, trendy restaurant but we were able to secure a table for eight, which was amazing. We started off with pisco sours all around, and let me tell you, this was one of the best ones i've had in a long time. We then ordered some ceviches, which were fresh, light and super tasty. We also ordered the quinoa salad, anticucho, and arroz con mariscos. It was all super delicious and I was very happy with all my food (especialy since I was on my second pisco). For dessert I had the picarones, simply yummy!!!. All in all, a great find and cant wait to go back.

The best Peruvian food in London
09 November 2014  
I lived in Lima for several years, I am very fond of Peruvian food, this place in Essex Rd is just great, the food, the athmosphere, the service but most importantly the food. I have met the owner, a lovely lady who is from Ayacucho, she was sharing some recipes with me and my wife, she told me the secrets she uses for some dishes, no wonder why her food taste so good, the tastes are just so similar as if you were dining in her house in Peru, the portions are quite big (well, for me)! the quality is excellent, A good introduction for trying this wonderful cuisine, is to try the buffet they serve at weekends. Worth a visit!

Tierra Peru has clearly been one of my favourite restaurants in London ever since it opened in 2012. The food never fails to impress, every dish is unique and perfectly prepared, a real explosion of tastes! The ceviches are excellent and the mains are equally divine (try the lomo saltado!). Regarding cocktails, go for classic Pisco Sour I love Lucuma sour, you won't regret it. Staff is nice and attentive and the manager generally says hello and enquires about our experience. I really love this place, fantastic athmosphere.

The food is amazing matched by outstanding service. The place gets really busy after 9pm, so make sure you book. Menu covers a range of different dishes, most of them traditional and unlike anything else you might have tried in London before.
