Pachakutiq’s Peruvian Pop-Up in China Central Place
Peruvian cuisine has been one of the few major omissions from the Beijing culinary scene as it has developed over the past few years. With the recent RAW Peruvian Pop-Up by Mosto, the return of Buena Onda at the Hatchery, and now the pop-up opening of Pachakutiq in the original location of Buena Onda in China Central Place, it looks like something catching on with Peruvian cuisine in Beijing! While all of the past and current Peruvian concepts are either set to be available for a limited time frame, we still have our fingers crossed that Peruvian cuisine will find a more permanent home in Beijing. So while it’s still a bit off and on, now is the time to get your fix.
Situated in the Cafe Flatwhite in the open courtyard space of the CBD’s China Central Place (in front of the Baccarat store and south of the Ritz-Carlton’s main entrance). Taking over the Cafe Flatwhite space every day after 5PM, this is pretty much the same deal that Buena Onda also first launched in. While it’s not necessarily convenient for those who aren’t based near the CBD, it is a great spot in the evening for a few drinks and refreshing snacks if you work in the area.
Having learned from the Chia sibling team of two brothers and a sister – Francisco, Maria and Juan Carlos Chia, they were born and raised in Lima, Peru with a family history of making Pisco, they are now keen to bring their family’s Pisco to China and also open a Nikkei gastronomic bar with a Peruvian chef that comes from Osaka, one of the most famous Nikkei restaurants in Lima.

RAW by Mosto: A Peruvian Pop-Up!
Ever since the dream pop-up dinner once upon a time called Nikkei (a collab dinner between Mosto & Hatsune), I’ve never let go of that vibrant and colorful tiradito bursting with flavors, a dish that’s a mix between Japanese sashimi and Peruvian ceviche which has come to define a signature style of Peruvian cuisine combining raw produce with fresh Peruvian produce.

Locura de Navidad: The Return of Buena Onda Pop-Up!
I could never have too much mulled wine and spiced cider. For me, it’s one of the best treats of the holiday season, just after honey-glazed ham and presents piled under the Christmas tree.
But it’s nice to mix things up every now and again and the team behind Buena Onda and Soul Bowls Pop-Up concepts (currently based out of The Bookworm in south Sanlitun) are bringing back the beloved Buena Onda pisco and ceviche concept for one night only – this Friday, December 18th!
“Nothing screams Christmas spirit like Pisco, so we’ve decided to throw an impromptu Christmas fiesta filled with our Classic Ceviche, Causa de Salmon Tartar and Empanada de Carne with salsa de aji verde. Wash these down with some Pisco Sour’s, Sangria, Beer or Wine, and salsa the night away to our funky latino beats.” – James Johnson, partner of Buena Onda & Soul Bowls
