What to Eat in Peru

May 16, 2019

As we all know, Peru has offered the world not only a world wonder but wonderful food too! When in Peru try and eat all, but if you are looking for some recommendations to start, we at Contours Travel will make sure you have the best insights.

Craving the best ceviche in Lima?

According to world-leading chef Gastón Acurio, the perfect place for this would be at La Picantería. But don´t get too full as after that you can head downtown to Pochita for some street side snack of anticuchos. End the evening with a delicious Pisco Sour at Ayahuasca cocktail bar, one of the best options in town.

After finishing your wandering around Machu Picchu

Work your way through Mercado Central, in Cusco, to try some Street food delights, you can´t miss out on the handmade cheese and the cooked corn!

In Arequipa you must try the picanterías for lunch

Starting with La Nueva Palomino. These places are known for being traditionally run by women who cook their family recipes.

Iquitos wild food scene, anyone?

For the bold travelling in the Amazon, alligator and slugs can be in their menus at the Belen market, for those less audacious a must-try is the chonta, peeled noodles made from giant palm hearts with lime, still exotic but less adventurous!
