Chicama is a seafood restaurant in Chelsea with a menu inspired by the coastal food of Peru and the bold-flavours of Peruvian cuisine. Fish is delivered daily and the vegetable dishes make inventive use of seasonal British produce. The bar exhibits a concise list of our favourite brands including Pisco, Mezcal, Japanese Whiskey, Sake by the glass and a wine list to accompany the vibrantly-flavoured food.
The Chelsea offshoot of Peruvian hotspot Pachamama. The name of this Chelsea newbie is not (thankfully), a twee riff on the word ‘chic’. Chicama is actually just a coastal town in Peru.Which is fitting, when you consider that this is the newer, more seafoody sibling of Marylebone’s Pachamama (a party restaurant, also Peruvian, popular with young moneyed sorts). The people here are no less beautiful, just a shade more mature. This is the southern, ‘resi’ enclave of SW10, after all.
