Review on Pachamama East
Riding high on the success of Peruvian restaurant Pachamama in Marylebone and Chicama in Chelsea, a third string to their bow was added in November 2018 with the launch of Pachamama East in Shoreditch. Laid out over two floors with the Josper grill taking centre stage in the open kitchen, the restaurant makes excellent use of reclaimed wood and features concrete walls with patches of exposed brickwork, offset with lots of greenery with pots of tropical plants scattered throughout. On the lower ground via a bright pink and black tiled staircase, there's a lovely private dining room filled with potted plants, herbs and trinkets, accessed by walking through the kitchen.
The menu is under the helm of Executive Chef Mikkel Gregerson, who has previously cut his teeth in esteemed restaurants such as two-Michelin starred AOC in Copenhagen. Unlike its older sibling Pachamama East will not only bring Peruvian dishes to the table, but will offer the Asian flavours so often found in Peru due to its large Japanese population. The menu is divided into Snacks, Soil, Sea, Land and Desserts along the lines of small plates designed for sharing. So diners might be tempted with the likes of warm aubergine salad, peanuts and soy, as well as seabass ceviche, soy tiger's milk, nouri and sesame, before enjoying crispy lamb belly, green pepper and miso. There are some interesting desserts to round things off with corn cake paired with vanilla ice cream and poached pears or Peruvian chocolate and toasted quinoa ice cream.
The stylish sunken bar serves wines, beers, spirits together with regularly changing piscos with Asian influences and bubble tea cocktails.
