Mercado 28

At this food market located inside the Balboa Strip Mall you'll be able to savor flavors coming from all around the world. You can have local tapas at Aima and Peruvian dishes are served at La Patarashkita, but you can also try out Italian gelato at Blu and Massamabile, as well as French treats at La Verité Patisserie.


Stretching from the Andean Mountains to the Amazonian jungle to the fresh waters of the Pacific, the Peruvian cuisine is a true reflection of the country's incredible biodiversity. Lima, as the center of it all, presents you with a top-notch gastronomic experience. Known as the “Gastronomy Capital of Latin America," this city is a genuine culinary hot spot. From tiny holes-in-the-wall to three restaurants on the list of the world's best, food here is a serious matter. At the forefront is the good old ceviche, the country's national dish. Also worth trying is the lomo saltado (stir-fried beef), anticuchos de corazón (skewers of grilled hearts), and the ají de gallina (spicy chicken stew), this apart from the popular fusion cuisines Nikkei and Chifa.
