What happens when the flavours of Japan and Peru go head to head, you ask? Well, you're about to find out. On Thursday, June 24, Fitzroy North South American restaurant Citrico is taking cues from the Peruvian-Japanese mash-up known as Nikkei cuisine and plating up a 10-course omakase feast.

Head Chef Dave Allison will be pulling flavour inspiration from the Los Andes through to Tokyo, for this memorable, globe-trotting Good Food Month degustation. You'll get a true taste of Nikkei fare, through crafty dishes like tempura beef tongue rolls matched with panca chilli mayonnaise, squid noodle salad featuring fried enoki mushrooms, wagyu with a ponzu and rocoto chilli emulsion, and miso-glazed toothfish hot off the parilla grill. There's even a fusion flan for dessert, finished with yuzu praline and custard apple cream.

You can look forward to sipping some clever sake and wine pairings throughout the night, as well as a few exclusive Nikkei-inspired cocktail creations. The whole evening comes in at $110 per person.
