Eating out is a feast in Lima. Foodies have acclaimed Lima as the gourmet capital of South America. The ingredients for some of Peru’s exciting dishes come from all around the country: the mountains, the Amazon rainforest and of course the coast. The fresh fish and sea life of the Pacific Ocean offers Lima’s chefs beautiful ingredients to transform into delicious dishes, such as ceviche.
It is not surprising that fish plays a leading role in many Peruvian dishes; the alternating warm and cold currents off the coast stimulate an abundant sea life. The national dish is ceviche (or 'cebiche'), a dish with fresh raw fish that is ‘cooked’ in lemon juice and available on every street corner. Each region has its own way of preparing the dish, but Lima offers the greatest variety served either in authentic cevicherias or in exclusive restaurants.
