What does a perfect Sunday lunch look like to you? Ours involves Pisco Sours and chargrilled Peruvian treats.

Lo-fi wine bar and bottle shop LOC have teamed up with new pop-up food stall Si Papi to bring the east end a fiery Sunday afternoon this February. If you’re a lover of Pisco Sours, meat and organic wine – this is the long lunch for you.

The sit-down lunch is taking place this Sunday, letting Adelaidans wrap up their weekend with a feast of all things Peruvian street food. The smoky, chargrilled menu features anticuchos – a pre-Colombian era dish where the ‘anti cuts’, or anticuchos, of meat, marinate for 24 hours before cooking over hot chargrill coals.

The launch weekend provides Adeladians with a teaser to the flavours they can expect to see from Si Papi during Fringe. The pop-up will set up shop outside Hellbound, Rundle Street, on Friday and Saturday during the vibrant east end festival season.

Serving tongue-in-cheek and traditionally prepared kangaroo fillet ‘skippy sticks’ and ‘real deal’ ox heart anticuchos, the Si Papi menu is equal parts adventurous as it is enticing. For the vegan and vegetarian attendees, the pop-up will also be slinging swiss brown mushroom and capsicum ‘hongo sticks’, prepared in the same succulent 24-hour marinade.

Si Papi was born from owners James and Rodrigo’s upbringing and the culinary traditions passed down to Rodrigo from his father, Alvaro. The fiery pop-up pays homage to Alvaro’s passion for continuing Peruvian traditions.

Good wine must always accompany good food – and the lo-fi wine gurus at LOC know this, giving lunch-goers the first Australian splash of NZ’s A Thousand Gods wine at the launch.

A Thousand Gods wine is tipped to be the most expressive found in New Zealand/Aotearoa. The Sunday event is the first Australian release of the drops made by winemaking duo, Simon and Laura. The pair aim to make their wines representative of the land it grows on, and each tipple as unique as possible.

If Sunday soirees have you craving cocktails, you can also indulge in zesty and tangy Pisco Sours.

The super-exclusive lunch only has 33 seats available, so make sure you snap up a ticket to the table. Tickets retail at $35, including two glasses of A Thousand Gods wine and a serve of Si Papis 24h marinated anticuchos.

Further food and wine will also be available to purchase on the day.

Tickets cost $35 and you can purchase them here.
