Celebrate spooky season the right way.
While going abroad still proves difficult for many of us during the pandemic, there may just be a way to teleport over to a forbidden forest in South America this Halloween without jumping on a flight. Over at the popular Peruvian restaurants COYA, you could be part of a tropical celebration come the end of October.
Upon entry to your chosen COYA location, you’ll be swept into a mesmeric trek trough South America’s forbidden forests, with heavy inspiration drawn from the Amazon rainforest.
At both COYA Mayfair and Angel Court, guests will be treated to a complete experience of flourishing plant installations and jungle textures, as they are invited to explore the spooky depths of the rainforest.
Kicking off the party will be COYA Mayfair’s Ritual night on Thursday, October 28. Expect heavy doses of tropical cocktails as you dance around the spruced up rainforest settings. Try their all new Banana Tequila shot and the debut of the “Tunche”, a blend of banana tequila, pineapple and soursop puree, PX escencia, lime juice.
If you can’t make that night but are desperate to taste these new beverages, do not fret. Ritual will be followed by a Saturday brunch (October 30) at both COYA locations. Each site has their own special bites, alongside the classy array of drinks.
At Mayfair you can sink your teeth into their signatures, including crocantes con guacamole, taco de salmón, yellowfin tuna ceviche as well as Chilean sea bass with rice, lime and chilli or sirloin with crispy shallots, aji limo, star anise.
And over at the Angel location, you can indulge in some Chilean sea bass croquettes with red chilli, Grilled courgette with shiso and red pepper relish and Peruvian potatoes with wild mushroom and truffle, plus much more.
Following the Saturday night brunches, you can carry on into the Halloween party on October 30 at either site. Grab a bite to eat if you missed the earlier brunch, before heading into the Pisco Bar to dance among the rainforest décor as you receive bottle service throughout the night.
