I've so far only been on a Sunday but it was wonderful both times, exquisite musicianship, great mojitos and a plush, intimate and family friendly environment. Will definitely keep coming.
Such a yummy restaurant, authentic Peruvian totally recommended!!
The food was delicious but the music and atmosphere are fantastic. Cant help but dance. Like a fun house party. And delicious cocktails to top it off. Be prepared to have fun.
El Tumi Restaurant was established June 2017 by the Meza Family. The Peruvian restaurant is located at Station 59 a newly converted Cocktail Bar / Lounge in Richmond. Having grown up amongst Peruvian cuisine and culture, Company Director Jose Meza brings his South American Heritage to this new business venture, no twist or fusion. “It’s a very authentic experience,” he says, proudly. “I wanted my customers to be transported to the real Latin America to experience traditional food, drinks and music.”
The El Tumi Restaurant menu was “inspired by my mother and my grandmother’s cooking, these are their recipes,” Meza says. The menu is full of hearty, home cooked food. A signature dish is Peruvian Ceviche a raw fish tossed with chilli, lime and coriander served with a piece of sweet potato. Other key ingredients used locally are a variety of aji (chilli peppers) that add a distinctive layer of flavour to dishes, like the Aji de Gallina a pulled chicken and rice dish. Potatoes of all kinds are incorporated into many dishes on the menu, from starters like and Papa a la Huancaina (a boiled potato dish in a creamy yellow sauce called Huancaina) through to dessert, with crisp-fried Picarones (sweet-potato doughnuts).
