Nikkei Street Food

Learn the secrets of the food that has conquered the streets. Discover the best of the Peruvian-Japanese flavor!

Nikkei Street Food: Fast, rich, hearty, and budget friendly

The carts, street stalls and “huariques” (small and little-known restaurants) are the economic livelihood of thousands of people who fill their city streets with flavor.

Street food comes without white tablecloths or other luxuries, but is always served in a friendly and easy-to-consume format.

Street foods have their charm, especially if it’s a fusion between Peruvian and Japanese food. Discover this improvised, yet well executed style of cooking, that provides a visual spectacle along with aromas that will arouse anyone’s curiosity.

In this Nikkei Street Food course we will see preparations created by Tomás Matsufuji, the protagonist within one of the episodes of Netflix documentary series, Street Food Latin America. You will find recipes in his own style, all with generous portions –  known colloquially in Peru as “bien taypá”.

Ottimo corso, peccato però che i sottotitoli siano il più delle volte confusionari e mal gestiti
