Located down a cobblestone lane just off the bustle of the high street, Zuaya is a newly opened gem that offers modern Latin American fine dining in the heart of Kensington. Created by Spanish twins Alberto and Arian Zandi, the new destination sets its sights on capturing the vibrant fusion flavours, atmosphere and hospitality of the South American continent.
Delivering on this goal from the get-go, Zuaya plays host to contemporary art-deco interiors yet features design elements of the Amazonian rainforest throughout. Lush green foliage, a living moss wall and flamingo lighting are just some of the elements that emulate tropical paradise, making for an intimate setting well worthy of an Insta-snap.
When it comes to food, their menu is divided into eight sections: snacks, ceviche, tiraditos & tartars, salads, tacos, robata grills, stews and desserts. Designed for sharing, the expansive range of distinctive dishes take influences from all over the region while integrating elements of modern European cuisine throughout.
Delicious, noteworthy options such as ceviche la brasa with sea bream, red onion, Peruvian corn, sweet potato ice cream and rocoto tiger milk offer a unique flavour experience while more traditional eaters can indulge in dishes such as their Brazilian stews with suckling pork belly carapulcra.
Complementing an expansive menu, Zuaya offers a carefully curated a wine list that enhances the dynamic food flavours, whilst behind the bar, innovative cocktails alongside Latin classics are bolstered with your typical slew of spirits, beers, etc. While this all speaks for itself, the new location’s charismatic and attentive team of staff have to be commended – which, considering they were handpicked from London’s best, comes as no surprise.
