1. Food. Hands down, Lima is the gastronomy capital of Latin America, and probably of the Western Hemisphere. In fact, Peruvian cuisine is the new global gastronomy rave with its exquisite and infinite variety, from the three major geographical regions – the Costa (Pacific coastline of 8000 kilometers), the Sierra (Andes mountain ranges from North to South) and the Selva (the jungle Amazon), not to mention its myriad influences – Creole, Chinese, Moorish, Japanese, Spanish, aside from its original indigenous cooking.

Think royal Inca cuisine. One restaurant from the northern coastal city offers at least 250 items in its menu – who can beat that?


Oh, did I mention desserts? I will have a special entry  just on food to include desserts and drinks later on in the blog. Maybe 2 or 3… more…! There’s just too many to write about! And I’m on an infinite culinary adventure yet. Have you relished any Peruvian delectable dish? What is your favorite? Share…
