MA: Japanese-Peruvian Culinary Sensation in Larnaca

The award-winning chef Thanos Stassinos has a special relationship with Nikkei cuisine, that combines Peruvian ingredients — tropical fish, quinoa, aji Amarillo peppers — moulded by Japanese techniques.

In Japanese, “ma” means “the space between two worlds” and there’s no better way to describe the fusion of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine.

The combination of these two culinary worlds is an example of a delicious, unique fusion of Japanese recipes and Peruvian traditions.

A trend that has been gaining ground worldwide in recent years is represented by a renowned chef Nobu Matsuhisa of Nobu chain.

The team behind Ma Peruvian Japanese Restaurant blends the finest East Asian and Pacific cuisines together, combining the Japanese minimalism with the vibrant flavours and colourful products of Peru.

At MA, Japanese minimalism blends with Peruvian flavours and colourful ingredients into gourmet dishes such as tiraditos, ceviche classico, tuna nigiri, double shrimp roll, sui mai duck, vegetables tempura, octopus & chorizo ​​yakitori, wagyu steak Japanese style and soba creating a truly unforgettable hedonistic experience.

And what is for dessert? Great matcha churros, of course!

The restaurant offers an impressive wine map and exquisite cocktails.
