Amazónico opened in Madrid 2010, the brainchild of husband and wife team Sandro Silva and Marta Seco. It has spread like wildfire across the globe, with restaurants in Dubai, Madrid and London. From sporting legends such as Cristiano Ronaldo to Hollywood royalty, such as Lady Gaga, Tom Cruise and Salma Hayek, it is as THE place to see and be seen.
Amazónico London is in the heart of Berkeley Square and is an ode to the cultural diversity and rich gastronomic heritage of the Amazon region. Inside it has a decadent interior inspired by the rainforest, with low lighting, sumptuous fabrics and vibrant prints, designed by internationally renowned artist Lázaro Rosa-Violan.
The menu is an homage to tropical and Latin American cuisines which is not only inspired by the Amazon but also the unique Asian and Mediterranean communities that inhabit them.
Sandro Silva said it best, “The Amazon is more than a river, it connects people, cultures and traditions. This, together with an homage to nature, is at the core of our concept.”
Amazónico London has recently launched the new spring and summer menu with 3 courses for £38 and 4 courses for £45. It features a collection of unforgettable tropical dishes with bold colours and even bolder flavours.
Start with the zesty Ensalada Amazónica with mango, avocado, confit tomato and kalamansi citrus or Amazónico’s signature Guacamole which is mixed tableside with avocado, chilli and served with discs of green plantain for dipping.
Next opt for the succulent Empanadas with wagyu beef and huitlacoche cream or the Causa de Pulpo with grilled octopus, spicy mashed potato and black olives.
For the main event, try the Corvina Chifera, flamed wok sea bass with bok choy and a decadent peanut sauce or Anticucho de Pollo, with tender chargrilled chicken thighs, panca chilli and a sweet potato citrus salad.
Last but not least is the deserts and you are truly spoilt for choice. There is a wide selection of ice creams and sorbets, such as Pink Rhubarb, Dulce de Leche and avocado. To end on a sweet and more indulgent high, opt for the Crema de Choclo, this corn brûlée has coconut sponge and is served with vanilla ice cream or try the Tapioca Tropical, with coconut and kaffir lime tapioca pearls, yuzu cream and chilli infused mango.
The adoration for Amazónico is ferocious but with its deliciously adventurous dishes and sumptuous setting, trust me, it is worth the hype.
