The specialists in Peruvian “Street food” are in Barcelona. Leche de Tigre is the trendy restaurant where you can taste delicious and genuine dishes of authentic Peruvian street food.

In Barcelona you can find more than 100 Peruvian restaurants, but very few manage to be a good gastronomic reference. Undoubtedly, Leche de Tigre manages to distinguish itself in this wide offer by achieving the authentic flavor of the food that is cooked in the streets of this Latin American country.

Tiger Milk

Located at Carrer de Martínez de la Rosa, 10, 08012 in Barcelona, it has an experienced chef. Nicky Ramos, former chef of The Market Peru (which no longer exists), proposes with Leche de Tigre an authentic flavor straight from the streets of Lima.

We will tell you about some of the most requested and recognized “Street food” dishes that you will be able to taste in the restaurant.

Chicken chili

Chef Ramos is very faithful to the popular recipe, as some restaurants prepare it in a refined way. Uncomplicated and very street style, it is a garlic and onion sofrito with mashed aji mirasol (dried yellow chili bell pepper), aji amarillo and aji panka (a little spicy). Separately, prepare the chicken broth to which leek, celery, onion, garlic and black pepper are added. Meanwhile, to the sofrito add bread without crust blended with evaporated milk until it is well integrated. This liquefied mixture is added to the chicken broth, stirring for half an hour. Then add the shredded chicken, Parmesan cheese and chopped pecans. Garnish with hard boiled chicken egg, Peruvian botija olives and pecan nuts.

Tiger Milk

It is undoubtedly one of the best known dishes prepared with fresh product that arrives every Tuesday from Peru. Among its ingredients is the type of chili you choose to add to the dish. There is the aji limo (very typical of tiger milk), aji amarillo (spicy and creamy) and aji rocoto (really spicy). Leche de Tigre is prepared by liquefying fish, cilantro, garlic, ginger, celery and onion, mixing it with a “fumet” or fish broth that is liquefied with lime juice and the chili bell pepper of the diner’s choice. Octopus, mussels and other varieties of fish are added to this liqueur and it is served with onion, corn and boiled corn.


It is the typical “street food” dish that you can find in any corner in Peru. It is fresh fish or seafood with lime juice, aji limo, chopped cilantro, the basic leche de tigre preparation and julienned onions. It is served with a lettuce leaf, cancha corn and cooked corn and sweet potato.
