Gaston Acurio's Astrid & Gaston is a mainstay in the World's 50 Best Restaurants list. 

This May 17-19, The Mandarin Oriental will welcome arguably Peru’s most renowned chef, Gaston Acurio.

Acurio, the owner and head chef of Astrid & Gaston in Lima, is credited with transforming Peruvian cuisine into the international fine-dining sensation it is today. 

Astrid & Gastron is a mainstay in the World's 50 Best Restaurants list, where it regularly appears in the top 20 and is launded for its combination of local, native ingredients and modern techniques. 

Acurio also operates over 40 restaurants in nine countries and has written a handful of cookbooks including Peru: The Cookbook and Ceviche Power

From 7pm nightly, chef Acurio will present some of his signature dishes at Lord Jim’s restaurant in the Mandarin Oriental, with the likes of his famed ceviche afrodisiaco (lime-cured king crab, sea urchin, clams and scallops) available from the a la carte menu. For the full experience, though, you'll want to try the 5-course tasting menu at B4,120 net per person or 7-course at B5,650 net per person.
