Foodie paradise Lima: Where to eat?

Peru has a lot of herbs, fruits and ingredients completely unknown in other parts of the world. South America is of course also the origin of the potatoe, quinoa, corn or cacao beans.

As a foodie you will love Peru and Lima. Here are some of the places we enjoyed immensely on our tour. ¡Buen provecho!

Canta Rana

This traditional cozy eatery in Barranco serves fresh seafood dishes including a large variety of ceviche.

Restaurant Sonia

You will probably want to hop in a taxi to get to this slightly remote, but fantastic seafood heaven in the south of Lima. In a very relaxed and down-to-earth atmosphere you can listen to live piano music and get the catch of the day.

Astrid y Gastón

Gaston Acurio is an internationally renowned cook who shaped the Cocina Novoandina. Use one evening in Lima to splurge on the seasonal tasting menu at Astrid  y Gaston in San Isidro (#33 of the 50 best restaurants in the world 2017).

You will enjoy the beautiful setting in the colonial villa, decorated with interesting art pieces and a bar built around trees in the courtyard.

Fruit Day

Feeling like a light lunch after Astrid y Gaston? Stroll around the market, just buy anything you don’t know and have a fun picnic with all those unknown fruits. One market easy to walk to from Miraflores is Mercado #1 (Directions in Maps).

In 1866 Mark Twain already called the Cherimoya “the most delicious fruit known to men”. In our opinion, Twain was wrong; we would eat lucuma all day.
