Melbourne’s second parrilla brings Peruvian cuisine to Melbourne
Pastuso is the sister restaurant to San Telmo and is located Melbourne’s CBD, at the end of the famous AC DC Lane. Pastuso is a modern Peruvian grill, cevicheria and pisco bar taking you on exciting journey of discovery through the coast, andes and the jungle of peru’s beautiful food and culture.
Pastuso, takes its name from Paddington Bear who was originally an orphan bear from Lima before he was sent to England. Parts of the story resonated with the journey of our ideas and inspiration from Lima coming to the western world and how it adapts and is received. We also found synergy with the motto from the tag that his Aunty put on his wrist before sending him off with the message “please look after this bear” and this has been adapted onto our business cards as a reminder to all of us about what hospitality is truly all about, looking after the customer!
Pastuso Peruvian Grill was established in July 2014, by the owners behind Argentinian restaurant San Telmo (Dave and Micky Parker and Jason and Renee McConnell) and they have partnered up with Restaurant Manager Ben Wood and Head Chef Alejandro Saravia.About Pastuso | Peruvian Grill.
