Crudo – Authentic Taste Of Peruvian And South American Cuisine.
Last week we visited Crudo, an authentic taste of Peruvian and South American cuisine.
The concept of this restaurant is pretty easy a grab-and-go concept, where you can create their ceviche bowls in addition to a menu full of options. The restaurant has two locations. We visited the one in Old Street, a cosy dine-in spot with a lovely vibe.
All tastes delicious, super high-quality and affordable price. They even have a happy hour where you can enjoy half price on their cocktail menu. Here you can find the most popular South American cocktails such as the famous Pisco Sour, Margarita and Papelón y Limón (rum and sugar cane).
Let’s talk about the food itself. As mentioned above, you can make your own ceviche blow, but as we were dining in, we dug into the small plates, which comes on a decent portion perfect for sharing.
Starting with “Algo para picar”, the Avocado & Beetroot Tartar, made with Orange-ponzu, beetroot, avocado, spring onion finished with sesame seeds and crispy onion.
We tried their very own Pastel De Choclo: A P
Peruvian cornbread with feta, sweet potato puree and criolla sauce. Make sure you give this a go.
Another highlight was their famous Octopus Tiradito with peruvian salsa criolla, perfectly sliced and beautifully presented.
Crudo is run by Venezuelan-born founders Carlos Socorro and Maria Yanez who were inspired by their time in Miami where they were surrounded by diverse South American cultures. ‘We were inspired to experiment with ceviche and create a concept around it. London has such a diverse and exciting culinary scene so we knew Crudo would be a perfect fit here’ says Carlos.
Crudo is also available for delivery through Slerp
We loved Crudo! The food is petty amazing, and the location is very cosy and intimate. Perfect for a casual dinner, date night or drinks!
