GASTRONOMY Peruvian cuisine is delicious and diverse with jungle fruits, succulent fish and seafood, hot peppery sauces.
There are traditional restaurants specializing in the famous “cebiche” -fresh fish marinated in lime juice-, or “anticuchos”, shish-kebabs of spicy marinated meat cooked over charcoal, or Chifa restaurants which provide Peru’s exotic alternative to Chinese cuisine. Peruvian beer is excellent and the wine very good, but the national drink, of course, is the “Pisco Sour”, made from grape brandy with lime juice and our secret formula.
Also try the delicious, non-alcoholic “Chicha Morada” made from local purple corn.
