Lima is Peru’s capital, one of the largest cities in South America, and one of our all-time favorite food destinations. This city was our top travel wish on our bucket list for years, and we finally got the chance to visit for the first time in 2022. Chefs Virgilio Martínez and Pía León have created a fine dining restaurant empire worth traveling for, helmed by their world renowned restaurant Central which celebrates Peruvian cuisine. Lima offers a whole new world of culinary adventures and ingredients, and is a must-visit destination for any traveling food lover.
In this foodie map, we have gathered all our Lima favorites. You’ll find everything from ambitious fine dining restaurants, to specialty coffee shops, award-winning cocktail bars, and, of course, all the ceviche you can eat.
