Toro Toro, an eight-time award-winning pan-Latin American restaurant, has introduced some new dishes as part of Mistura, a new, exclusive concept paying tribute to the diversity of Latin American food. Mistura brings together the “essence of Latin America through a culinary journey of its people and cuisine, a wondrous blend of cultures of priceless heritage,” according to a press statement issued by Alfardan Hospitality.
Located at Marsa Malaz Kempinski, The Pearl-Doha, Toro Toro Mistura is available as an extension of the a la carte menu from Saturday to Thursday, 6pm to midnight, and on Friday from 7pm to midnight. Chef Edgar Hurtado, Toro Toro’s executive chef, took inspiration from his home country, Peru, so all the newly launched dishes have a Peruvian touch. 
The inspiration of the name Mistura came from an international food festival called Mistura, a celebration of Peruvian cuisine held each September in Lima showcasing the rich biodiversity of this beautiful and colourful country, the statement notes.
The new dishes are focused on a variety of seafood and include various appetisers and main dishes such as the Ceviche Callao, inspired by chef Edgar’s hometown Callao, being the most important port in Peru. This dish “perfectly recreates” the freshness of the seafood with original flavours from Peru. There is also a Latin American-inspired Burrata using products like chipotle, giving some touches of sweetness to balance the cheese. Other dishes are a Taco Camaron, Langostino Melcocha, Grilled Octopus and a Risotto Camaron influenced by tradition and inspired by the sea.
Mistura will allow guests to discover the authenticity and diversity of Latin American food, proposing “familiar yet unexpected and adventurous flavours”, the statement added. Chef Edgar said, “We created Mistura so that guests can discover the beauty, diversity and multicultural spirit of Latin America. Being my home country, Peru holds a special place in my heart and it was super exciting working on these new dishes bringing some new Peruvian flavours to our guests.”
Toro Toro restaurant’s “lively and family-friendly ambiance is ideal for couples, families and large groups”. It is one of the three Sandoval restaurants in Qatar, along with Zengo and Maya. 
The restaurant’s “sultry interior pays homage to the fires of the traditional Churrasco grill with accents of dark charcoal walls, animal motifs, textured natural sculptures and leather furniture running throughout.”
