A new Peruvian restaurant, Llama Kid, opened in Austin last fall, first as a ghost kitchen business, and then as a physical restaurant. The restaurant, from co-owner chef Diego Ysrael Sanchez, is found at 4620 East Cesar Chavez Street in the Govalle neighborhood as of December 2021.
Through Llama Kid, Sanchez aims to recreate what he ate while growing up in his native Peru, using cooking techniques he picked up during his culinary career and using local, Texas ingredients, as he explains to Eater. He applies what he describes as a “modernistic spin” to Peruvian cuisine.
