According to The Economist, Lima is the new Mecca for foodies; Tierra Peru is your Essex Road gateway.
As a global food-fan it is rare that you visit a place and get the feeling of having encountered a new cuisine, but the menu here is innovative with notes of both Spanish and Japanese, the food is delicate and the service is very welcoming.
On our first visit we shared the Jarana platter (for 2) a tasting menu with 6 different dishes from thin strips of raw fish marinated in lime and olive oil (ceviche) and grilled slices of ox heart marinated in a stew of peruvian spices. This was so exquisite that we had to return to this place despite only 9 nights in London. On our second visit, we had scallops, and a flavourful fish soup for starters followed by a quinotto and a risotto with duck cooked in stout and spices.
Tierra Peru is a great, relaxed, friendly and affordable place to start exploring the Peruvian cuisine.

Foodies will love this place, an almost hidden gem just off Upper St (Angel). Totally new dishes for me, really unique and fresh. Since there's practically no other Peruvian restaurants in North London, it really was a great experience. Couldn't recommend them more. Great service, atmosphere and menu. Be definitely be back, Thanks

Tucked away in islington, I never expected to find such great flavours. As opposed to so many South American restaurants, here the chefs are actually Peruvian and it comes through in all their dishes. True Peruvian home cooking in a lovely atmosphere with friendly staff and a nice decor.

I had the chance of tasting this delicious exotic food in a wonderful and comfortable place. Food was served quickly and it was delicious. I'm very convinced it was worth the price. Nice service, nice food and a welcoming atmosphere that made us have a nice time. Everything was superb. Highly recommended.
