Peruvian food is taking off here in Bangkok and BLU36 is leading the way. This newly opened eatery, located a short distance from Thong Lor BTS Station, highlights the culinary fusion developed over a long process of cultural exchange between the Spanish, Africans, Chinese, Japanese and Italians, as well as native South Americans. Peruvian cuisine became more and more varied as the races mixed, and the combination of sweet, salty, and sour tastes adds a truly unique blend. Try signature dishes such as the ceviche and tiradito, corn dishes (including chupe de ollucos), or brave the aji de gallina, one of the spicy chilli dishes. There’s also a wide selection of fine wines and traditional Peruvian cocktails in which PISCO, Peru’s national brandy, has a starring role. Open Monday to Saturday, from 5pm till midnight.
