Dishes will include huevo criollo – eggs with quinoa, morcilla sangrecita and rocoto sauce – and ceviche del dia – Cornwall-caught cured fish with celery, plaintain, sweet potato and tiger's milk. For the bolder diner too, there's torreja de sesos – fritters of lamb's brain with rocoto chilli salsa.
No Peruvian eatery would be complete without pisco sours, and Morales is promising plenty of those. With a widely-stocked bar serving up a creative menu of pisco cocktails, a host of new ideas will be introduced alongside the classics. In addition, British and South American craft beers will be offered.
Housed in the former Alexander Trust Dining Rooms, the home of a Victorian charitable institution that served cheap meals to the working poor, the restaurant will be split into a 70-seater dining room and a spacious bar. As a nod to the buildings' past, Morales has even dug up some 19th Century Peruvian recipes to introduce to 21st Century London.
The growing popularity of Peruvian cuisine in London – along with the Soho Ceviche's already glowing reputation – means that Morales' latest is sure to book up quicker than you can say 'Lima'.
