Review on Chakana

Birmingham's first Peruvian restaurant Chakana was launched in the late summer of 2019 in Moseley Village, just three miles south of the city centre. Occupying a corner site, the restaurant is set in a building that previously housed a branch of Lloyds bank, which was the last bank in Moseley. It's the debut restaurant from Robert Ortiz, who was formally head chef at Michelin starred Lima London and prior to that climbed the culinary ladder at the Landmark Hotel in Marylebone and the Four Seasons in Canary Wharf.

Chakana takes its name from the Inka cross, an ancient Peruvian symbol that represents individuals living in harmony with each other and their surroundings. The pared back interiors have been created by 2G Design & Build with contemporary furnishings and walls decorated with Peruvian weaving and textiles, as well as exhibiting local and Peruvian artwork.

The kitchen sends out vibrant, classic Peruvian dishes with modern influences using exciting flavours and textures. Why not opt for the hand dived scallops ceviche served with yellow chilli cream and Andean kiwicha cereal before moving on to a main course of suckling pig with yucca root, majadito and charpita chillies. To finish desserts stay close to home with 75% Amazonian chocolate corn crisps or 3 milk cake, algarrobina syrup, pisco and lime meringue.

The ambience is relaxed and the service delightful, and there's an extensive wine list, beers, cocktails and spirits which specialise in Pisco to accompany the food.
