Pastuso brings Gippsland to its doorstep
Pastuso - purveyor of Peruvian cuisine perfection - has given Melbourne diners another reason to come and check it out. It has just officially unveiled a new mural right outside in ACDC Lane. Instead of gazing out at a brick wall, diners can now view an urban trompe l'oeil, in the form of a Gippsland landscape, complete with rolling green hills and subtle sunset tones.

Talented young Melbourne street artist Resio was commissioned by Pastuso to create a mural that celebrates Gippsland. You can see other examples of Resio's work here.

Why a mural of Gippsland, given Pastuso is a Peruvian restaurant? Because Pastuso's Alejandro Saravia was recently named official food and beverage ambassador for Gippsland, and he showcases the produce from the region in Pastuso's menu.

The Pastuso/Gippsland relationship will be taken to another level in this year's Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. In the aptly named Pastuso meets Gippsland, to be held on Tuesday 20th March, diners can expect a six-course sharing menu, inspired by Gippsland producers and winemakers, to be held at Pastuso. The cost of the meal is $88, or $128 with matched wines. You can book for the event here.

Otherwise, drop in to experience Pastuso's relaxed atmosphere, and have a drink at the pisco bar, sample some ceviche (fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices), or choose something more substantial from the parilla (charcoal grill), the cilindro (smoker) or the spit. You can view the full menu here.

Pastuso is located at 19 ACDC Lane, Melbourne. It is open seven days, from 12 noon until late. For more information, call (03) 9662 4556. To make an online booking, click here.
