Adria and his brother Albert have hired an international team of chefs, including some from Peru and Japan, to run their 30-seat venture. So far, they have recruited Jorge Muñoz Castro, a Spanish chef with Peruvian roots, (pictured above), Franco Kisic from Peru, Sebastián Mazzola from Argentina and Kioko Ii from Japan.
As of now, the chefs are putting together Pakta's menu which is based on Nikkei cuisine, a traditional cuisine of Peru which blends Japanese and Peruvian elements.
''We will serve sushi but not makis,'' Muñoz Castro told Peruvian publication El Comercio. The chef indicated other menu items will include the classic Peruvian tiraditos, ceviches and nigiri-causas (a layered dish typically made of potatoes).
Now a three-Michelin-star restaurant, Noma has changed, but not necessarily on the plate. According to Kenneth Foong, it's all about the way the team works, which is closer to a tech company than a traditional restaurant. Read our exclusive interview with Noma's head chef.
