Care for a vegetarian causa? And where can you find the tastiest gelato? We take you to some outstanding foodie destinations in Lima. Be advised: do not watch on an empty stomach!
One of the best ways to start your day in Lima is by going to the local market to get fresh ingredients for your morning fruit bowl or lunch salad. So, we decided to take you to the famous Mercado de San Isidro. We then head Café Verde in Miraflores, one of the finest coffee roasters in Lima. Because, no morning is complete without coffee.
We then move on to Barranco, where the options for a delicious lunch are endless. We give you a taste of what Germinando Vida offers for those looking for vegetarian dishes. We show you the absolutely delicious traditional Peruvian dishes that Isolina cooks up. For dessert, a must-try is BLU: il gelato del barrio, where you can find classic gelato flavors along with more daring ones like muña or cherimoya flavored gelato.
As a bonus, we take you inside the kitchen of the Country Club Hotel, where the expert chefs show us how to make a sizzling lomo saltado and a savory ceviche. The only way to end the day is with a pisco sour and chilcanos. Cheers!
