There are no words, and I mean no words to describe our excitement at the new launch of Malta’s very first Peruvian restaurant. Actually there are words… and you can find them below.

Machu Picchu launched last weekend (December 8th to be exact) with the promise of bringing authentic gourmet Peruvian cuisine to Sliema.

Located in the new fancy food hall at Sliema’s Plaza Shopping Mall, Machu Picchu is managed by Juan Manuel Vasquez (a native Peruvian) and his partner who have a strong team of four Peruvian chefs in the kitchen (so you can guarantee proper authenticity).

A Peruvian restaurant is not a proper Peruvian restaurant without Peru’s national dish of ceviche, and ceviche is what you’ll most certainly get here.

Machu Picchu’s includes prawns, calamari and octopus ceviches marinated in citrus juice, topped with chopped onion, parsley, ahi Amarillo (a yellow Peruvian chilli) and garlic.

Other things on the menu include Lomo Saltado (beef tenderloin slices, sautéed with onions, tomatoes, aji and other spices) and Arroz con mariscos – rice with seafood (squid, prawns, octopus), onions, bell peppers, chopped tomatoes, peas and a parmigiana-like cheese.

Diners can also feast on the Peruvian comfort dish of Aji de gallina (a Peruvian chicken stew) comprising of chicken cooked with yellow chili peppers, walnuts, spices, garlic, and turmeric – served with boiled potatoes and rice.

I don’t know about you but we can taste the explosion of flavours just by looking at the menu.

Machu Picchu is bringing the (Peruvian) heat to Sliema!
