The Themed Sunday Brunch Features Live Entertainment and Benefits South Florida Wildlife
Chotto Matte, the global Nikkei dining destination, will transport guests to the heart of the Peruvian jungle with the launch of its Jungle Brunch on October 9. The immersive brunch will be available every Sunday from 1-4 p.m. in Chotto Matte Miami’s expansive dining room, with exotic beats, a wild atmosphere, and live DJs to welcome guests to the jungle in style. A portion of sales from the Sunday brunch will be donated to the South Florida Wildlife Center, one of the highest-volume wildlife trauma hospitals in the United States.
Chotto Matte’s new brunch will feature two unique sharing-style menus: Jungle Brunch ($75 per person) and Vegetarian Jungle Brunch ($65 per person). Keeping up with the theme, each menu features dishes elevated by herbs, spices, and citrus fruits found in the Peruvian jungle. The Jungle Brunch menu will start the experience with appetizers like the Oak-Smoked Salmon Tostada, Bao Pato Crujiente, Edamame, and Jungle Ceviche, a spin on Chotto’s classic ceviche that incorporates three types of fish rather than just one. Guests will then enjoy a selection of tableside torched sushi, including the Sato Maki and Spicy Tuna Roll. Before digging into Chotto Matte’s Dessert Platter, guests can choose three robata grill favorites from a selection of options, including the Spicy Chicken Karaage with a special Nikkei rub; the Gambas a la Parrilla, Argentinian red shrimp flavored to perfection in a spicy coconut marinade; or the BBQ Huacatay Broccoli with Peruvian black mint, red chili, and cilantro.
The Vegetarian Jungle Brunch menu starts with appetizers, including the King Oyster Mushroom Tostada spiced with Peruvian aji panca chili, Bao Shiitake Tempura, Edamame, and Lychee Ceviche with fresh Peruvian corn. For sushi, guests can indulge in the El Jardin Roll with sake soy bok choy, shiso, cauliflower, and pea purée. From the robata grill, they can choose from a selection of options, including the savory Arroz Chaufa with Peruvian vegetables, egg-fried rice, and spicy sesame soy.
The Nikkei hot spot offers a jungle-inspired take on the classic bloody mary, the Inca Mary, with Tito’s vodka, guava glaze, soy, and tomato. Guests can imbibe with Chotto Matte’s new Free-Flowing Champagne & Cocktails Package ($90), which includes a selection of jungle-themed craft cocktails and free-flowing Veuve Clicquot Brut. Exotic, colorful cocktails span the menu, including the Sach’ara, made with Codigo 1530 Blanco tequila, mezcal espadin, watermelon, raspberry, hibiscus, mirin, roco, and lime; Lima Bellini, with Caravedo quebranta pisco, banana, lychee, lime and prosecco, and Morning Bird, with Bacardí Añejo Cuatro, Aperol, pineapple, shrub, and lime. Guests who reserve a Free-Flowing Champagne & Cocktails Package from 1-2 p.m. will be invited to the bar to order their first drinks and enjoy passed appetizers from the menu before being escorted to their table.
To complete the experience, diners will receive a small bottle of Chotto Matte’s limited-edition yellow anticucho sauce, created by Chef Sclare and freshly prepared in-house.
