At La Huerta Chinen, where they specialize in Creole mixes, you’ll get to try the famous Causa Limeña (mashed yellow potatoes seasoned with limes, chili peppers, and stuffed with chicken). At Alto K Fish, they specialize in seafood. You’ll get to taste their marine trio (fish ceviche, rice with seafood, and squid pork rinds). After delighting your palate, visit the historic center of Lima and walk through its old streets appreciating its impressive balconies, churches, and colonial houses. See the main square of Lima, the cathedral, the government palace, and the convent of San Francisco and its catacombs. Later, sweeten your palate by tasting Spanish churros (filled with manjar blanco or pastry cream accompanied with white sugar). Then, visit a local bar to learn about the flagship drink of Peru, the pisco sour (made from grape pisco, limos, syrup, egg whites, and angostura bitters).
