Enjoy incredible Peruvian cuisine and discover the flavours and history of the city on this food tour around downtown Lima.
Lima Food Tour
We'll meet in the morning in Miraflores, outside the Terrua Coffee Shop, and start our mouth-watering food tour around downtown Lima. Our first stop will be the meeting point itself, where we'll talk about the role of coffee in Peruvian society, its history over the centuries and how it has become one of the best-loved coffees in the world. Plus, you'll get to try it for yourself!
After the coffee tasting, we'll take the famous Metropolitano and head downtown, where our next stops will be at the Mercado Central (central market) and the Barrio Chino (Chinatown). Thanks to the arrival of Chinese immigrants in the 1850s, Lima has a thriving Chinese-Peruvian culture and gastronomy is a key part of this. You'll be able to try the fusion of Chinese elements with traditional Peruvian ingredients, known as Chifa. Plus you'll be able to try the typical "chicha morada", a drink made from purple corn.
Next, we'll see some of the most emblematic places in the city, such as the Legislative Palace and the Basilica and Convent of San Francisco. Close by, we'll visit the Taberna Cordano, a traditional bar that's over a century old. Here we'll try delicacies such as churros and papas rellenas (stuffed potatoes) or papa a la huancaina (potatoes with a yellow creamy, chilli sauce), and we'll wash it all down with a traditional Pisco Sour.
Once we've tried the incredible cuisine on offer in the city, we'll end our tour by travelling back to Miraflores.
