Authentic Peruvian Style in the Heart of Hong Kong


Asia will experience authentic Peruvian cuisine thanks to world-renowned chef Virgilio Martinez Véliz and the opening of ICHU Peru later this year.

Chef Virgilio Martinez Véliz and Bulldozer Group, a Dubai-based hospitality group, have partnered up to launch his first restaurant in Asia. As a celebrated figure in the culinary world, Martinez has helped promote Peruvian cuisine around the world and his restaurant, Central, and risen into the top position on Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list from 2014-2016.

Chef Virgilio Martinez Véliz is excited and ready to share authentic Peruvian dishes in a relaxed and comforting environment with the opening of ICHU Peru.

ICHU Peru will let guests dine on contemporary Peruvian cuisine in a relaxed, bistro-style setting, all showcasing authentic flavours while honouring Peruvian culinary traditions. The name of the restaurant comes from a plant found in the Peruvian Andes that only grows in extreme conditions. Martinez picked that name to reflect his in-depth knowledge of indigenous ingredients and his passion for new challenges.

Chef Martinez will also be bringing a couple of key members from Central to help him build ICHU Peru to his standards, ICHU resident chef Sang Jeong and award-winning designer Joyce Wang. Chef Sang Jeong is a Korean-born chef who has worked alongside Martinez for three years and collaborated on many of the restaurant’s signature dishes. Joyce Wang has designed the interior of the restaurant from inspiration of Peru’s landscape and Martinez’s culinary style.

The design and feel of ICHU Peru will be of the many different neighborhoods and seasons that Peru has been through in their history. This will bring the food to a whole new level of flavour and specialty.

While the food will present much-loved Peruvian dishes, the background will feature rich textured materials and raw finished to evoke Peru’s changing topography and dynamic ecosystem.

The restaurant itself will be able to host up to 80 guests inside with the main dining room featuring inspiration of the restaurant’s namesake plant with an open kitchen. There is also a terrace area seating an additional 85 guests with views overlooking Pottinger and Stanley Streets.

This July, the Asian community will experience more than meets the eye with ICHU Peru thanks to the creations and dedication to Chef Virgilio Martinez Véliz.
