A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

El más internacional y prestigioso chef peruano, Gastón Acurio, ha vuelto a decantarse por el corazón de L'Eixample, donde ya estuvo tras los fogones de Tanta –que ahora se ha convertido en Totora y ha pasado a manos de su antiguo jefe de cocina–, para abrir su nuevo restaurante: Yakumanka. O lo que en idioma quechua significa “la olla de las aguas, del mar, de los ríos, de los lagos, de la vida”.

En Barcelona, Yakumanka es una cevichería y aquí Acurio quiere reproducir el ambiente de La Mar, el famoso restaurante que posee en Lima (Perú). El concepto es una mezcla de casa de comidas tradicional (dado el decorado con esencia marinera e inscripciones con un punto kitsch, que nos trasladan de inmediato a la capital del país andino), pero también de modernidad y desenfado. Y la carta, una mezcla de los mejores productos de las aguas de España y las recetas más auténticas peruanas. Hay una larga barra donde sentarse a tomar una copa, y otra donde degustar los platos fríos de la casa: ceviches, causas, tiraditos, anticuchos, brasas...

INSIDER tip

Im-pre-scin-di-ble: el pisco, el cóctel peruano por excelencia, será el principal protagonista de Yakumanka. No dudes en maridar la comida con este combinado.

    Excelente cebiche y carne al estilo peruano. No probamos el pescado del mostrador pero parecia interesante (de mercado: marisco, escorpora, dorada, gallo de S. Pedro, entre otros)

    Excellent food. Went here with my wife and some friends and we all left impressed. All of us have been to Peru and the food stacks up to anything we had there.

    Very good experience & food. All dishes were very nicely presented and excellent. Portions are small which is probably good to avoid over-eating. Service was ok if a bit distracted when it came to bringing beverages or attending to ordering

    The food was really tasty and refreshing. On day of my visit I had slight stomachache, so I thought that I wouldn't be able to eat anything. But food was so delicious and refreshing that I can only say that I was healed by the food. Cevishe was beautiful. And the top of the dinner was rice with fish, that was crunchy fuul of spices and really complete taste. That dish really surprised me because it was mix of some Asia and South American tastes in a same time.

    The air conditioning was put far too cold- you had to wear a jacket or scarf and it felt quite uncomfortable to sit in such a cold. also some of the dishes where extremely overpriced like the oysters for 5 euro a piece or the scallop in parmesan for 9 Euro. the ceviches where outstanding and i loved the rice dishes.very true perubian. thanks for having us!
