The food at Pachamama is inspired by Peruvian cuisine. Applying rustic cooking techniques - our menu has been constructed to be a sharing-style dining experience. Customers are invited to sample small and medium-sized dishes that demonstrate a fusion of Peruvian flavours with the best of British ingredients.
Our suppliers have been carefully sourced with most of our fish and seafood delivered from Cornwall and meat from Yorkshire. With a focus on using seasonal, British ingredients, the food at Pachamama is unique in its commitment to quality and simplicity with the belief that if the produce is superior, very little has to be done to create something truly delicious. Standout dishes include yellowfin tuna, pickled potato, XO & cucumber ceviche and beef short rib ‘Pachamanca’ with ají & sweet potato.
Pachamama has been designed for comfortable and cosy dining with style and a modern, refined colour palette. Inspired by the imagined aesthetic of a crumbling, Peruvian, colonial home, the interior design has taken the multiple uses of the space into consideration, as well as the challenge of brightening a basement space.
With a strong focus on natural materials - the restaurant has been constructed with wooden panels and flooring, exposed brick and ceiling features while natural plants and flowers bring the room to life. All plates have been bespoke made by an Oxford-based ceramicist and cutlery sourced from Bemondsey antique market.
The bar menu at Pachamama features a range of Pisco infusions, innovative house-cocktails, South American and European wines and Peruvian and British craft beers. With a philosophy that is aligned with the kitchen - the bar displays bottles from independent British distilleries such as Sipsmith and Cutty Sark. Cocktails are mixed with fresh ingredients from the kitchen, home-made syrups and experimental garnishes.
Pisco, Peru’s most popular liquer, is a focus and the Pachamama bar team create seasonal infusions such as beetroot, pear and coffee. In November 2014, one month after opening, Pachamama was voted as the top Pisco bar by London’s Metro newspaper.
