Peru, Lima Guide (B): A Lima Food Tour with da Taste of Peru

My favourite way to get to know a new place is through its food and what better way to learn about Lima than by taking a Lima food tour with a local. A Limeño. David grew up in Peru’s vibrant capital and introduced us to the city during an immersive gastro-cultural tour with Da Taste of Peru. We experienced a fabulous fusion of Lima’s highlights, its quirks, its art, history, neighbourhoods and, of course, a full-on food fest in South America’s gastronomic capital.

A smiling David met us on a Sunday morning with a private car and driver at our hotel, Belmond Miraflores Park. Lima’s a sprawling city and we’d never have got around everything on foot. Our first stop was at Lima institution, La Lucha Sangucheria Criolla, near to Parqe Kennedy. Peru has a massive sandwich culture and La Lucha brings a gourmet touch to it. I’d skipped breakfast so got stuck into a classic ‘butifarra‘ of roast country pork and onion relish with a side of Chicha Morada.

If you go to Peru you have got to try Chicha Morada. This luscious drink made from ckolli purple corn, which grows, in the Andes is the deepest ruby colour. It’s boiled with water, pineapple, apples, cinnamon, cloves and sugar. It’s how I’d imagine blackberry juice would taste and not in the slightest bit corny. Delicious any time of day. ......
