Clay is serving dishes inspired by Nikkei cuisine. Nikkei refers to Japanese diaspora, those of Japanese ancestry who choose to live outside of Japan. Nikkei doesn't refer only to Japanese-Peruvians, who call Peru home, but to the cuisine that emerged from the blend of these distinct cultures, developed over years of experimentation, collaboration and expression. Although over one hundred years old, Nikkei is still unfamiliar to Manu. It is our privilege and responsibility to bring you its exciting and distinct flavours.
Inspired by clay
Our name, drawn from clay food pots in Peruvian fires, inspires the main dining area.
Inspired by ash.
After the fire has fragranced the air a settled comfort sets in and the bar calls. Contented drinks and laughter. Formalities aside this area is for the relaxed, the conversational, the entertainingly social, the comfortable style, the view, the glinting of the lights. Listen in for the end of night.
Clay brings you an exceptional culinary experience. Fresh ingredients delivered via intricate techniques and nuanced flavour. Food inspired by the elements.
