The inspiration for our venue’s name comes from a versatile plant that inspired the imagination of a young man. He first saw this robust plant featured in an edition of the National Geographic. People from the mid-coast region of Peru dry out and weave the reeds to build ‘Caballitos de Totora’, small canoe-like vessels used mainly for fishing expeditions. This eventually translated into an ambition to discover and experience the rich culture of Peruvian life and gastronomy. From the simple yet rugged origins of the Totora plant to its inspirational uses in everyday life, we employ this iconic material to showcase our passion and creativity for a fresh and authentically unique Peruvian experience.
Our concept has been centered around a love of food and life.
