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.
