Wakatay Restaurant-Peruvian Nikkei Cuisine


On Saturday, August 11, 2007, I went to Wakatay Restaurant-Peruvian Nikkei Cuisine with some co-workers. This restaurant prides itself in fusing foods and flavors to create a totally unique experience. The menu features traditional Peruvian dishes, Peruvian Nikkei dishes and Peruvian Chinese dishes. The owner is currently developing a new menu that will include foods with a French twist.

The owner of the restaurant, Jorge Nakamoto, is a Peruvian Japanese. He came to the United States about 20 years ago, and learned to cook from his mother. All of the recipes at the restaurant were created by him. The food is delicious. I highly encourage you to go try it for yourself.

Wakatay Restaurant-Peruvian Nikkei Cuisine is located at 1630 W. Redondo Beach Blvd. in Gardena, CA. 90247.


This collection features pictures of food and of the atmosphere of the restaurant. Enjoy! Try not to get too hungry... :)
