The delicacy and refinement of Japanese techniques and the exotic flavors of Peruvian ingredients make for a sublime culinary match at Aji, the first Macau restaurant to showcase unique Peruvian Nikkei cuisine.
Aji is overseen by Peru’s celebrity Chef Mitsuharu Tsumura of the restaurant “Maido” in Lima, a Peruvian Nikkei concept which ranked No. 10 in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2019. Preeminent in Peru, we are now bringing this flavor concept to the world.
Chef Mitsuharu says, “There is a story that the original point of entry of chili peppers to Asia was in fact from Macau – by the Portuguese. That is the name of our restaurant ‘Aji’ – which means ‘taste’ in Japanese, and ‘chili pepper’ in Peruvian. We are blending our spice and spiciness with local ingredients.”
Aji is the first Peruvian Nikkei restaurant in Macau and is a stunning contemporary restaurant that packs an exquisite flavor punch. This one-of-a-kind concept is a destination for sophisticated gourmets, and reflects the fusion of cultures that has made Peru a global food capital.
Innovative food is matched by dramatic design. The dining room, with its organic shapes and textures, overlooks MGM COTAI’s incredible Spectacle, and the ceviche and open kitchen gets you up close with master chefs preparing the freshest seafood. Aji’s pisco and sake bar mixes some of the best Peruvian-inspired cocktails outside of Lima.
