Central is the number two restaurant in the world. The dishes were authentically Peruvian and the alcohol pairings were interesting and incredible.
Maido is the number eleven best restaurant in the world and the number one restaurant for Nikkei in Lima. Nikkei cuisine is Peruvian ingredients cooked with Japanese techniques. The Nikkei Experience tasting menu was one of the best dining experiences we have had while travelling. One course is tuna nigiri cut and prepared table-side!
Astrid y Gastón
Located in a unique three-century-old colonial mansion, Astrid y Gastón is the godfather of modern Peruvian cuisine.
