Malabar is something special. It’s one of the few eating and drinking places in Lima to really capitalize on Amazonian ingredients. The chef, Pedro Miguel Schiaffino, cut his teeth at Michelin starred restaurants in Europe and brings an eclectic range of influences to bear on his cooking. The drinks are equally imaginative and the potent Pisco Punch, prepared according to a nineteenth century recipe, is memorable for all the right reasons. They stock a wide range of the potent spirit and often serve them paired with Peruvian cheeses. Located in a peaceful street of San Isidro, Malabar is an attractively decked out space with bold blood orange walls, cool retro seating and a small but handsome bar area.
