Cocina Peruvia Spices Up Your Taste Buds



Food has become a way for people to come together and experience the culture of the world through their own comfort and taste buds.  Cocina Peruvia offers that opportunity to its customers to experience one of the melting pots of different flavors — the Peruvian cuisine.

The restaurant aims to spice up the Filipino taste palate by introducing to the public the South American cuisine of Peru. With its culinary influences from Europe, Asia, and West Africa, their menu will include aspects of familiarity to the Filipinos, such as how their food is cooked while at the same time, give their customers a completely new taste through their unique flavor profiles.

Ambiance

As you enter the restaurant, you will instantly feel welcomed because of the kindness of the staff to the warm and colorful space of the restaurant that mimics the casual Latin street bars. Decorated in lights with an overlooking view of the Ortigas commercial district, it will surely help you unwind.

With a multi-cultural theme that is shown through its interior, it is refreshing to the eyes and brings a sense of comfort. The long wooden tables, couches, and high stools make it the perfect spot for your barkada or workmates to catch up and enjoy each other’s company.
