Palma high up at Sumaq

Chef Irene Gutiérrez has become the ambassador of Nikkei gastronomy on the island of Mallorca.

Originally from Cusco, the capital of the Incas in the heart of the Andes, Chef Irene Gutiérrez takes Palma even higher with an open kitchen that plays the partition of Peruvian fusion, known as "Nikkei" or "Nippo-Peruvian ". This original cuisine comes from the strong Japanese immigration in Peru at the end of the 19th century. Ceviche, the Peruvian national dish, is thus enriched with soy sauce, sesame or wasabi that subtly softens the lime. The Sumaq, nestled in the Santa Catalina district, offers a dozen different types of ceviche. Building on the success of its 2013 opening, the restaurant had to relocate to a larger - 75 seats - and more elegant room. Here, go for a Secuencia de ceviches de pesacado after a Causa de pulpo al olivo - tomato stuffed potato, avocado and octopus, all topped with Peruvian olive cream. Refresh your palate with a glass of Verdejo, dry Spanish white wine.
