Aymara – Peruvian cuisine in Oslo

Chicharrón

The Latin American restaurant boom in Oslo, as the newspaper Aftenposten called it, begins with Aymara opening it’s doors yesterday – Tuesday the 4th of November in Parkveien 64 near Solli. Piscoteket is to follow on Thursday the 20th of November. Table is booked for that too, and we are excited to compare the two places.

It’s Delicatessen’s Rodrigo Belda which now opens Oslo’s first Peruvian restaurant. Rodrigo explains that they are importing a lot of ingredients  from Peru, as well as Peruvian beer and Pisco.

You should go here for:
– the cocktails! Pisco Sour, Yuzu my Way and Manzanita.
– the tiraditos! A variation of ceviché. Acid heaven.
– the inka art on the wall from artist Chris Reddy.
– the comfy, retro, mustard colored chairs.
– the solid wood bar counter where you can sit down an enjoy a cocktail and a few dishes if you’re just dropping by.
– the chicharron! My god, the chicharron… Soft, fatty, slow cooked pork with a crusty outside.
– “Inka chocolate”. Chocolate cream, sorbet, “earth” and dehydrated mousse together with a lime curd. Textures, flavors… Yum!

Please notice:
– the prices are Oslo west…
– you have to like acidity in a meal
– if the meat is not perfect, just tell them. They will gladly replace it.

  2. I agree with Rosa. Peruvian food has a unique flavor we want to share with the whole world. I wish Aymara and the others to come after it would keep this unique flavor as much as possible. I invite all norwegians to try our food and enjoy it. Congratulations Aymara team and lots of success!!!
