SUYO Celebrates First Anniversary with Exclusive Tasting Menu

Groundbreaking modern Peruvian restaurant marks an exciting debut year as a Vancouver dining destination

463

SUYO Modern Peruvian is turning one, and what an incredible first year it has been!  Since opening its doors on August 25, 2022, the innovative SUYO has captured the hearts – and palates – of Vancouverites and visitors alike, winning accolades such as Best New Restaurant and Best Latin Restaurant at the 2023 Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards and being listed as one of Eater’s essential places to dine in Vancouver right now. 

In its debut year, the intimate and always-exciting Mount Pleasant restaurant has not only earned coveted awards, but has also become one of the city’s most sought-after dining and drinks destinations. Thanks to its menu of dishes and cocktails showcasing global influences found in Peruvian food and drink, presented through a contemporary lens, and unparalleled hospitality delivered in a lively setting, a visit to SUYO has become synonymous to holding a passport to a thrilling taste adventure. 

To celebrate its remarkable first anniversary, the SUYO team – including Chef/Partner Ricardo Valverde, General Manager/Partner James Reynolds, Director of Operations/Partner Felix Ng, and Bar Manager Max Curzon-Price – has crafted a seven-course 1er Aniversario Tasting Menu, with wine, cocktail, and spirit pairings, comprising guest favourites from the culinary offerings throughout the restaurant’s first year of operations. 

Enjoy a culinary journey that begins with bold and bright Hamachi Tiradito in a Japanese-influenced Nikkei leche de tigre and ends with sweet treats and an optional pairing of a very special house-made digestif. Along the way, feast on visually-stunning and delicious dishes that challenge what you may know about Peruvian fare, or offer you a unique introduction to the compelling cuisine. 

This special dinner menu will be available exclusively to dine-in guests from September 5 to 9, 2023. SUYO’s a la carte menu is also available during this time.
