Since Peruvian cuisine has so many different options, you may feel a bit confused about where to start tasting it. The good news is that there is a place for every budget and for every personal preference: meat-lovers, veggies-fans, barbecue-goers and even for those in love with fish, pasta or spicy flavors. And of course there are places for those adventurous foodies who love the fusions between international and local flavors.
One of the budget-friendly places in Lima are Cordano
, specialized in traditional food, located in the downtown, and El Parquetito
, a little more pricey since it's in Miraflores; you may also enjoy some creole music there.
Other budget-friendly options, but more focused in barbecues like the local Peruvian roasted chicken, are Pardo's Chicken
, the largest local barbecue restaurant chains.
Those who love seafood will surely have a good time at Alfresco
, while those who want to indulge in local creole cuisine probably have to pay a visit to El Rincon Que No Conoces
, Señorio de Sulco
and Brujas de Cachiche
, the latter with the excellent bar called Huaringas.
And if you love to dance and to enjoy a good live show while dining, you need to spend a night at Brisas del Titicaca
, that focuses in Andean food and features folk shows every weekend.
