Lima – About Saints and Sinners
The capital of Perù has a lot more to offer than just being a stopover on the way to Machu Picchu: Where to get the best Pisco Sour, commiting a real sin and enjoying one of the most creative dishes worldwide.
Miraflores, probably the most well known district in Lima when it comes to finding extraordinary tastes and flavours, is home to various, great restaurants one should definitely go to when travelling to magical Perù. Find a small selection of my favourites in the following (table reservation necessary!).
Graving for some special and simply delicious seafood dishes? In “los Pe(s)cados Capitales”, which means “Deadly Sins”(it’s embedded in a nice wordplay with “pescado” = fish), you can choose from a variety of different dishes/sins, such as “Envy”, “Greed” or “Impatience”.

When I came to South America for the first time, I had no idea that “Peruvian Cuisine” is THE (new) big thing for all the foodies out there. At latest when having dinner at “el Central”, recently voted the 4th best restaurant worldwide, it’s quite clear that french cuisine is so yesterday…

You can’t leave Lima without having tried a genuine, peruvian Pisco Sour and some Ceviche (which somehow became the new “seaweed salat” of appetizers, known far beyond Peru’s borders). Being well established and known as “a classic” in the gourmet capital, “La Mar” is always the right choice.
