    It is fascinating to witness how Japonesa manages to maintain its concept while incorporating elements from two different culinary traditions on their menu.

    This is particularly intriguing considering that Peruvian cuisine is characterized by bold, often spicy and savory flavors, while Japanese cuisine emphasizes the natural taste of ingredients, lending a more delicate and subtle flavor profile to its dishes. However, it’s Japonesa’s unique approach that undoubtedly captivates and intrigues people.

    From its sophisticated interiors to its mouthwatering dishes, Japonesa represents the harmonious blending of two distinct cultures, highlighted even more by its signature dish, La Japonesa!

    La Japonesa resembles a Nigiri sushi, with the combination of crispy charred rice topped with spicy tuna and green chili, making it a flavorful Japanese-Peruvian dish that is simply irresistible.

    One of their newest “exotic” creations, Moqueca, is also worth a try as it features a seafood fiesta of shrimp, squid, clams, mussels, and fish fillet with hints of coconut and Peruvian palm oil.

    It is served with fresh bread that you may dip on the flavorful and creamy soup, creating a delightful combination that makes it the ideal Peruvian culinary experience in Poblacion.
