Due to the many influences that make Peruvian cuisisine what it is nowadays, and to the many diversity of regional cuisines, this list we offer you here tries to be a fair representative of every little aspect of this blooming gastronomy.
Although it may seem a bit odd, there's a strong presence of Asian cuisines here, especially Chinese and Japanese, and that's why we have chosen Niqei, a restaurant focused in Peruvian-Japanese fusion that has won unanimous accolades from all sectors: Japanese food but with an unmistakable Peruvian style that is conquering new fans every day with its seafood-based dishes.
And to keep up with seafood, which is one of the Peruvian cuisine especialties, you may want to visit either Cebicheria La Mar or Segundo Muelle, both of them excellent alteranatives for trying one the most famous Peru flagship dishes: the ceviche (fresh fish fillets marinated in lime juice).
Other restaurants take a look at other Peruvian regional cuisines, like Chala Costa Fusión and Panchita, which focus on traditional creole food (with more or less fusion), mostly from the Peruvian coast; and Kamcha, that homages Andean food and cultures with delicious and colorful dishes.
For going fancy, Huaca Pucllana and Malabar are places that will add a new dimension to your culinary experience. And, on the other side, going popular, Pardos Chicken serves an excellent version of the ubiquitous "pollo a la brasa" (Peruvian Roasted Chicken), and Mavery especializes in Italian flavors, very especially pizzas and osobucco, but with a Peruvian touch.
