Nobu Melbourne's A Taste of Peru

Traditional Peruvian Pisco Sour
I love a good thirsty Thursday and now stylish Nobu Melbourne is bringing it to us every week with A Taste of Peru – a fusion of South American flavours with Japanese techniques and some damn fine cocktails.  This week I had the pleasure of sampling the menu so I could share the good stuff with you.  What more could a girl ask for in the days leading up to Christmas?  

Rosa Valha - "romantic and sexy blend"
Machu Pichu Smash! Fave.

The cocktails were energetic, fresh and unique with a good balance of tasty flavours and consistencies.  Averaging around $22 a cocktail, I thought this was very reasonable considering the venue (of which I am a new fan, being a previous Nobu Melbourne virgin).  Hands down, my favourite was the Machu Pichu Smash with Brazilian Sagatiba Pura Cachaça, Elderflower Cordial, Lemon Juice and fresh apples.  It’s also fun to say.  

The tapas, share style menu offers tasty numbers like grilled scallops with aji amarilo salsa, king crab ceviche on butter lettuce and 48 hour cooked short ribs.  SO GOOD.  Slightly limited on the vegetarian front if you’re that way inclined but I have no doubt they will be able to happily accommodate your every need. 

Homage to his earlier chef days in Peru, Executive Chef Christopher Shane brings us A Taste of Peru every Thursday night from 5pm at Nobu Melbourne.

You’ll like it if you enjoy casual sophisticated with good food, drink and music.  Check out the menu here.

I’m already planning for more scallops and Machi Pichu right after Christmas…hello holidays!
