There’s always a new restaurant, bar, dessert or cocktail to try in Barranco, the district that enchants one and all. Susana, Tony, and Carsten show you some foodie favorites for you to try next time you’re in town in this walking tour.
Let the foodie inside you eat its heart out! Enjoy these delicious Barranco favorites:
Churros are a must at La 73, an enchanting spot that sits right as you enter Barranco coming from Miraflores. Think of it as the perfect “treat yourself” moment before you start your walking tour of the neighborhood.
Address: Av. el Sol 175, Barranco 15063
2. Bean-to-Bar Chocolate
Cacaotal offers more than 40 different brands of Peruvian chocolate and 300 different kinds of chocolate bars. If this isn’t heaven on earth for chocolate lovers I don’t know what could possibly be. Get a bar or two for the road and for your friends abroad.
Address: Jr. Colina 128 A, Barranco 15063
3. Seco de Asado
You want the real Peruvian lunch experience? Go to Isolina and get yourself the seco de asado, a delicacy you won’t forget anytime soon.
Address: Av San Martin 101, Barranco 15063
4. Vegetarian Tacu Tacu
You will not regret trying out the vegetarian options with a twist at Germinando Vida. The tacu tacu prepared with sautéed mushrooms and plantains is a sight (and taste) to behold.
5. A Scoop (or two) of Chirimoya Gelato
Their offerings change with the seasons but never disappoint. Blu Gelateria uses local ingredients and the space has the friendliest staff. You’ll come out happier than a kid in a candy store.
Address: 28 De Julio 202, Barranco
6. Espresso (to wake you up for an evening out on the town)
An espresso to get you ready for a night out in Barranco. One of the best is at Tostaduria Bisetti. Sit outside in their patio filled with flowers and trees.
Address: Pedro de Osma 116, Barranco
