First of all I would like to make a list of all these excellent food you have to test in Peru. In Lima you find all of them in great variety:

ANTICUCHOS (grilled heart of cow with potatoes and a hot sauce)

CEVICHE or CEBICHE(raw fish and sea fruits in a lemon sauce with onions, some special spices)

PAPA A LA HUANCAINA (potatoes with a spicy sauce made out of eggs, oil, aji (spicy sauce), salt crackers.........

AJI DE GALLINA (cooked chicken with special spicy sauce (aji)) I found great preperation tips at VT karigalli´s page

TAMALES (can´t explain it very well, it´s a mass of corn with eggs and meet put into the leaf of corn



OCOPA (another tipical sauce like the "a la huancaina")

LOMO SALTADO (grilled beef in little pieces with rice and salad)

CHURROS (sweet dough filled with honey, you can get it at every corner in the city, really deliciuos)

POLLO A LA BRASA (ok, you can get grilled chicken all around the world, but the sauce they use is delicious!!!)

The most common drinks are:

CHICHA MORADA (a drink made of purple corn)

INKA COLA (very sweet yellow soft drink)

PISCO (a type of grape brandy, used for Cocktails, especially PISCO SOUR or to drink the better ones pure....delicious!)

There are also some good peruvian wines, although mostly drinken are chilenian ones. Can´t recommend a peruvian wine, (disculpenme peruanos, no les conozco muy bien) but I like very much the
CASILLERO DEL DIABLO, the red wine from Chile. Normally you can get it in a lot of stores in Perú.

Favorite Dish: I adore from all of these ...all....:-)
ok, my favs are ANTICUCHOS in the streets, late at night after being out e.g.
and CEBICHE!!!!
TAMALES are great for breakfast as well.
