Peruvians take their cuisine seriously, and the rest of the world has started to as well. From the seafood feasts on the coast to the tongue-twisting fruits and herbs of the Amazonian jungle and not to mention the bounty of the pristine Andean environment, the country is a foodie paradise. On our recent trip to Lima, we got the chance to try several of the capital city’s newest and most exciting restaurants, and here are a few of our favorites.
This is the new restaurant at the Miraflores Park Hotel, which opened on July 1 with an entirely new design, chef and menu of nuevo peruano dishes…though Chef Federico Ziegler is actually from Argentina. The restaurant has an informal lounge area on a wooden deck out front, shaded by leafy palm fronds.
On Chef Ziegler’s menu you’ll find fusion dishes like home-smoked duck with a slow-cooked egg over sautéed mushrooms; a delicate wakame-marinated octopus carpaccio with crunchy red quinoa salad; low-temperature cooked ribeye with pecan-crusted sweet breads and creamed gobo root; and oven-baked paiche, a deliciously chunky Amazonian fish, with tomato fondant that goes great with a side of fresh asparagus sprinkled with shaved almond and parmesan. The dark chocolate hazelnut mousse mille feuille with mango and crème fraiche ice cream was our favorite of the desserts. Calle Los Carolinos 118; Miraflores, Lima; +51 (0)1 610 4000
