Set in DIFC’s Gate Village, co-founder Ali Sidani and Rania Al Khalifa alongside Roya International’s chairman Ahmed Ramadan, are hoping to bring the soul of the South American country with their new venture.
Guests will set their eyes upon a feature when walking into the building, modelled after the last remaining Incan Rope Bridge.
Spread over 6,000 square feet, Totora will seat 185 people, serving food noon – midnight Saturday to Wednesday and extending its opening times until 1am on Thursdays and Fridays. The bar will be open an hour later than the restaurant each night.
It’s likely to provide competition for the likes of international brand Coya, which is at the Four Seasons Resort in Jumeirah plus The Act at the Shangri-La Hotel.
Tesoro, Toro Toro and Story Rooftop Lounge also serve up a good share of Peruvian food with Pollo Pollo recently launching last year too.
