It was so fun creating this blog post of my favorite food places I went to while I was in Peru to work on manufacturing. It was like taking a trip down memory lane and remembering all the food dishes I wish I could surround myself with once again. All of the restaurants are located in the city of Lima and are surrounded by other beautiful destinations to see. To keep it short and sweet I've condensed the list into my top 7 recommendations along with some notes I've left along with the pictures. Click the restaurant name to find their exact location and too see more delicious photos!
While waiting for a table at the restaurant, the waiters would give free samples of some of the dishes and drinks they have on the menu. How nice is that!
The key is to eat some ceviche with the sweet potato that is included to tame the acidity of the lime that they season the fish in.
Passion Fruit Juice
I loved how juice is a big thing in Peru! You can pick from a variety of exotic fruit juices to come with your meal.
Chicken Noodle Soup
Quiche with Side Salad
Beautiful scenery and delicious food. Enough said.
Large Pizza with 4 Different Flavors
On the table were little trays like the one above that fit each square of pizza perfectly. My favorite topping flavor on the pizza is the one above, it has avocado, sesame seeds, mushroom, corn, and I don't know how there is cheese because everything is vegan!
Best mango juice I've ever had! It is not liquidy and tastes fresh with the pulp of the mango.
Cappuccino and Americano feat. Big and Lil Alpaca
Sitting in this adorable cafe is the perfect rest stop after visiting Kennedy Park to see the cats and shopping in the souvenir markets near by.
I chose the Strawberry Popsicle with Condensed Milk Filling. It is in the shape of a lego and I was surprised at how soft it was. I wouldn't call it a popsicle and the texture was not like a sorbet, but practically like the creamiest strawberry ice cream ever.
6. Sofa Kitchen
San Borja, Peru
The interior of this restaurant is so unique and the plant life inside is so refreshing. In this district of Lima there are a lot of parks through out and it'd be perfect for a walk after having a fantastic meal.
Mini beef empandas need to become a staple food here! With a dash of lime it's the perfect food on the go.
Pesto Linguini with Chicken
I feel like most pastas tend to throw protein on top and it usually has no flavor because the pasta is the main show. But not this dish, it was a perfectly seasoned chicken cutlet with a wonderful pesto sauce. The pesto sauce was so smooth and had a different consistency than the ones here in the U.S.
Churros con chocolate
Also located super close to the cafe I mentioned earlier called Puku Puku. I thought the chocolate would be super thick, but the consistency is actually drinkable and the perfect dipping sauce for a warm churro.
