Sophisticated Peruvian fusion comfort food rules at Cosme. It’s a smart spot led by James Beckemeyer, who got his break – like many a Peruvian chef – under Gaston Acurio at the renowned Astrid y Gastón. Taking native ingredients and giving them an Asian twist, star dishes include pulled pork bao, sea bass curry and salmon flavoured with mandarin. And, of course, it wouldn’t be Lima without ceviche and tiradito also on the menu. A bunch of homemade sodas sit on the drinks list, including the likes of cardamom lemonade, pineapple and ginger beer, and lemongrass and tangerine, which all, of course, can be given a kick by a splash of pisco.
