TUPAC: A CREATIVE TAKE ON LATIN AMERICAN CUISINE IN THE BERGMANNKIEZ

TUPAC: A CREATIVE TAKE ON LATIN AMERICAN CUISINE IN THE BERGMANNKIEZ

Want to see what Latin American cuisine offers beyond classic tacos and ceviche? Then Tupac is the right place for you. Founders, friends David Pollack-Destiny and Ariel Peralta, show how courage and creativity can be used to create something original from seemingly simple ingredients. Chef Ariel reinterprets the classics by going beyond convention, but this restaurant isn’t just about creative freedom in cooking; much emphasis is placed on the sourcing, quality and seasonality of ingredients. This care and creativity is fully realized in dishes like the spicy pimiento peppers with aromatic shiitake mushroom filling and the fresh asparagus coated in delicate melted manchego cheese and homemade guava marmalade. Spectacular cocktails are the perfect pairing for the dishes, and dessert is no less memorable: a homemade sweet potato doughnut with peanut praline and chipotle chili for a tasty interplay of sweet and spicy flavors. This is Latin American food like you’ve never had it. (Text: Lisa Staub / Photos: Savannah van der Niet)
