This summer Soho will welcome a new fast casual eatery, straight out of the mercados of Peru. Butifarra; a noun; [butiËˆfarÉ™], named after the popular Peruvian street snack (a bread roll with slow-cooked meat and salsa), will serve authentic sandwiches and ceviche alongside ‘Cevushi’ – a ceviche-sushi hybrid.
Creator Ali Malik will work closely with family-run Peruvian supplier Andes Export to source authentic produce such as maiz morado (purple corn) and amarillo (yellow chilli).
Open 8 am-7 pm daily, Butifarra offers traditional Peruvian breakfasts, as well as the signature butifarra with slow-cooked short rib, ceviche and ‘cevushi’ (sushi rolls filled with marinated fish). Side dishes will include: Vegan taku taku rice dish and Peru’s famous alfajor cookies, best described as biscuity dulce de leche macarons.
The restaurant will serve its own-brand coffee and freshly made juices, alongside more unusual offerings like the chichi morada (a purple fruit juice made with corn).
A branded product line of authentic Peruvian sauces created in conjunction with Andes Exports will be available to take home.
