I was about to entitled this post as “Peru´s coastal food”, but then I realized that some of the dishes can also be found in the highlands (at least, in Cusco) such as aji de gallina, tamales and even ceviche.
However, most of them are from the coast; above all, the seafood. After all, fish is fresher in the coast than in the Andes, isn´t it? No surprise then the first thing to do when I come back to Lima is to run to a seafood restaurant.
This listing is far from being complete so if you have another favorite coastal dish your recommendation is welcome!
Lately, I have been reading posts about food and I noticed that all bring recipes. Please do not ask me too much because to be honest with you I do not know how to cook these dishes. I am good at enjoying them though. If you are also prone to tasting them, then…provecho!
