Maido by Mitsuharu

By Thierry Dessauve

In Japanese, Maido means “welcome” and that’s the overwhelming feeling you get when eating here. The room is decorated stylishly with coloured ropes emulating the Japanese flag; this restaurant is perfect for special occasions and treating yourself. The head chef, Mitsuhara Tsumura, serves up an inventive, colourful tasting menu of Peruvian-Japanese bites alongside some delicious à la Carte options and a classic sushi counter. A standout dish is definitely the Cau Cau dim sum with sea snail.

Maido has risen to number 1 in Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017 and Tsumura has recently opened “Sushi Pop”, a casual sushi chain in Lima with delivery options on top of opening restaurants in Chile and Macau.

Maido’s wine list is commended for its breadth of international wines, a rarity for Peruvian restaurants. Some highly regarded choices include the Schubert Pinot Noir from New Zealand and the Quintarelli white.
