South American meets European cuisine – Tupi London [INVITE]

It’s been a while since I did a food post here and this little restaurant just outside Elephant and Castle train station is something I’m truly impressed by.

I was kindly invited here with a few blogger friends from @LovePopUpsLondon to try out their amazing Europe meets South American cuisines. Let’s just say it did not disappoint.

@TupiLondon has a couple of locations one in Peckham Rye and the other is Elephant and Castle.

The decor of the place is simple but am super obsessed with the tropical ascent wall..great for that Instagram post I tell you.

First let’s start off some amazing cocktails, of course smoothie and juices are also available for those non drinkers, so fear not, no one is left out.

Espresso Martini and Very Berry Smoothie
The guilty line up

Next for the starters, we chose from a healthy selection available of meat, seafood and veggie options..

Spicy Prawns and Scampi in a tomato and white wine sauce
Little birds- fried chicken thighs with romesco sauce
Squid with lime mayo
Grilled chorizo with a chimichuri sauce

The starters were amazing and the spicy prawns dish was huge.. could definitely have had that as a light main dish

Once our stomachs were lines with drinks and starters we was ready for the mains, I chose the Muqueca which is a Brazilian seafood stew, and it was delicious, the stew was filled with prawns, mussels, scampi and fish, in a tomato and coconut and lime sauce with a hint of chillies to give it a slight kick

We also tried the Arroz Verde, which was a risotto dish with peas and asparagus, a very fresh and light alternative to the usually very rich and heavy risotto dish..it was served with a soft boiled egg that oozes.. a definite favourite!

Then we tried the spicy seafood linguine and the halloumi burger with an order of fries.

The portions are great for the value and the flavours delicious, would definitely come back if I’m in the area, causal location for friends or families.

Sides- grilled halloumi and broccoli dukkah

Thanks again for the invite to try out some great south America dishes.
