Bringing the jungle to the city. Chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino may have been trained in the US and Europe, but his heart belongs to the Amazon. He spent years exploring Peru’s portion of the immense rainforest, learning techniques from indigenous communities, before opening Amaz in 2012. During free time, you’ll still find Schiaffino exploring the jungle, whether it be fishing in the river or investigating wild ingredients. Book a cosy table under a fishing net dome and order à la carte – most dishes are for sharing. Whether you go for grilled giant river snails or paiche river fish crackling, there is a helpful glossary on the menu.
