// Peruvian cuisine in Neukölln.
Chicha is a new peruvian restaurant in Berlin Neukölln that celebrates the vast culinary diversity of Peru. What started as a streetfood experiment is now one of the best peruvian restaurants.

As an analogy of the peruvian cusine, which is heavily influenced by japanese sushi, I disovered the udukuri process that I then transformed into a peruvian flavour with lots of colors.
Udukuri is a traditional japanese craft technique, in which the wood surface is carved away with a metal brush, leaving only the hard wood grain then lacquered and polished again to bring out the wood grain as pattern.
Take the most simple pendant lamp imaginable had been added a wire triangle to get a kind of chandelier with a modern geometric style.
Chicha is a cultural movement originating from the urbanization indigenous peruvian communities, materialized by a graphic aesthetic and a musical style. This kind of posters is very typical and characteristic for the peruvian streetstyle.
One wall in the rather quit part of the restaurant is covered with fragments of original posters from the streets of peru.
