About Peruvian Food

Peruvian cuisine is diverse. There are more than 400 traditional dishes in Peru, and the flavours in these change through the coast, highlands and Amazon jungle. A common element of most Peruvian foods is the Ají (Peruvian chilli), although Peruvian dishes themselves are not overly spicy. Another key ingredient is potato – Peru boasts 3000 native varieties. It’s often used as a side dish.

Uma’s menu is based on Peru’s coastal cuisine – light, mildly spicy, with Alejandro’s expert ceviche as the standout – perfect for Western Australia’s own seaside lifestyle.

Uma’s menu starts from the MAR (ocean) with ceviches, raw and cured; moves through the ’VALLES’ (valleys) serving seasonal vegetables with a Peruvian twist; ending in the ‘GRANJAS’ (paddocks) – plating up high-end beef, lamb, and chicken. All ingredients locally sourced.

“One of the best ways of discovering Peru is through its food. Uma is a fusion of Peruvian recipes and local ingredients, combining traditional cooking techniques with the incredible flavours of Western Australia”

“The food we eat has such a story as it travels from paddock, sea or valley to plate. We hope that our Uma guests can be both curious and adventurous as they travel through our Peru
