But the many regional Peruvian foods make a great variety to choose from. Peruvians love to eat, that is an essential part of their culture: celebrations and welcoming friends mean lots of food. And Lima’s dining scene includes also many international culinary influences brought by successive foreign immigrations: Spanish, African, Asian, Mediterranean, Italian, etc.
Regarding budgets, in Lima you can find many alternatives, from hidden and very little home-made food places (as cheap as US $5 per menu) to luxury five-star restaurants. The choice is up to you.
Some possible suggestions: Edo Sushi Bar, Peruvian-Japanese fusion; La Mar for a superb ceviche; La Lucha, a top class sandwiches: Astrid & Gaston, for something truly special, or Panchita, for a great grill experience.
