About the Nikkei-Kitchen @ Mercado

Nikkei ist a Style of cuisine, that developed during the last hundred years in Peru. Due to the immigration of Japanese workers, an interesting peruvian-japanese Mix evolved. For the Japanese immigrants their cuisine from their native homeland was always very important. They began to incorporate elements of the peruvian flavors into their dishes. This was the beginning of Nikkei Cuisine. Today the Nikkei Cuisine is based on the colorful, aromatic-fresh but traditional Creole-Peruvian cuisine that is prepared with the flavors the finesse, the precision and technique of the Japanese Cuisine. This is also the Nikkei Style that you find in the dishes of Javier Vera Alarcon here at MERCADO!
