Full description

Experience the flavors of Peruvian food like a local on this street food tour. You will discover why Lima is called the gastronomic city of America, through tasting its signature stews, fruits, and desserts. Learn how to make Peru’s signature drink during a pisco sour lesson.

After pickup directly from your accommodation, head first to the Chorrillos Artisanal Fishing Pier, one of the popular trade points for marine products. Get to know the history of the pier before continuing to the Surquillo Market.

The Surquillo Market become something of a mecca for international foodies after the praise of the famous Peruvian chef Gastón Acurio. The market is open every day and sees a large amount of food and spices sold.

You can find exotic fruits from the Amazon Rainforest, potatoes and chili peppers from the tops of the distant Andes Mountains, fresh fish and seafood from the coast, and meats of different types, including alpaca and guinea pig.

Taste some exotic fruits (cherimoya, granadilla, and tumbo) and the chicha morada (drink made from purple corn), then continue your gastronomic experience at two fast-food restaurants to taste their different specialties.

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).

As a final stop, visit the Chabuca Granda avenue to try the Peruvian donuts known by the locals as picarones (made of sweet potato dough accompanied by honey).
