TRAVEL AROUND LONDON: EAT AT COYA AND GET THE MOST SOPHISTICATED TASTE OF LATIN AMERICA CULTURE IN TOWN
NOW FEATURING AMRITA BILIMORIA’S RAW HIDE EXHIBITION-UNTIL SEPTEMBER 1ST
Everybody seems to be back from the long Easter break looking fabulous and showing off their pictures on social media profiles while you’ve been stuck here like me?
Don’t worry, the good news is we live in London and being here means having the entire world at your fingertips for ongoing inspiration and cultural break through.
Last night I’ve chosen the warmth and passion of South America at Coya, my favourite Peruvian Restaurant and Pisco Bar in town.
Here, Executive Head Chef Sanjay Dwivedi combines traditional elements of Peruvian cuisine with modern British seasonal ingredients to create Coya’s very contemporary menus and suit today’s vibrant dining scene.
The design, a bit decadent yet modern with a nod to a colonial past, leave space for an array of painted murals, textures and finishes that create an edgy, yet glamorous take on Latin America.
On top of all this, Coya regularly hosts art programmes and pop-up exhibitions, as well as an impressive roster of live bands and international DJs, bringing together art, music and culture from all over Latin America, the UK and beyond.
Her show, entitled ‘Raw Hide’ is a striking collection of equine-influenced photography in limited edition giclée prints, inspired by Amrita’s travels through Argentina, rural life in the campo, the horsemanship of the gauchos and her passion for the sport of polo.
Amrita’s work focuses primarily on equine sport, culture and lifestyle around the world and I recommend taking an extra tour on her website to appreciate all of her stunning images, inspired and created by the biggest passions in her life: horses, travel, a desire to learn about local heritage and tradition and the amazing sports of racing and polo.
Because of Coya’s support of Latin American art and culture, the venue becomes a natural match and fitting setting for her beautiful work, enhancing heritage and tradition of countries we always dream of.
A must see exhibition until September 1st, maybe while trying Coya’s all-new Brunch: a contemporary Peruvian menu, offering an array of seasonal food and drink, alongside international DJ sets and regular live music performances, every Sunday from 12pm – 2.30pm.
