The name caught my attention and I had read positive reviews about Barra Sullorqui, a small casual and typical seafood restaurant hidden in the middle of Surquillo, not far away from the financial business center in San Isidro.
Gabriel O’Donnel, an Executive Chef with years of experience gained in Perth and Melbourne, Australia and owner of Chicha– a Peruvian restaurant in the faraway Commonwealth country- decided to come back to his motherland with the idea of opening up a seafood establishment that will keep things simple, fresh, and abundant at an affordable prices.
This idea materialized itself with the support of Juan Carlos Arnaiz that brought his own experience after working with restaurants such as Osaka. On February this year, Barra Sullorqui opened and since then, Gabriel wakes up very early each morning to go to the fish market himself and choose the best produce you can find.
Service is fast and no wonder this small place gets filled up quickly with customers from all walks of life. Rumor has it that you can easily bump into one of your favorite football players or your favorite fashionista. Business is going well and in less than a year since their opening, a second establishment will be opening up in Surquillo this December 16. For now, they are happy to be among the 10 best barras cevicheras, we were told.
