Lima, a Foodie’s Fantasy

With my two adult daughters in tow, one a vegetarian and the other a pescatarian we delighted in the options we discovered in Lima, Peru! Breakfast was included at the hotel and actually had individual stations for various food choices including vegans!

Life is good when you can find new restaurants for both lunch and dinner each day. It is even better when the cost of these delicious morsels is less than one might spend at a fast food place in the USA!

While most of the ones we frequented were in either Miraflores or Barranco due to the close proximity to our hotel we did stop at a fun little eatery off the Plaza De Armas De Lima. I can highly recommend the following: Javier’s, Mo Bistro, Cala and Tragaluz.

But the highlight was the tasting menu at Kjolle. The price was higher than the others but probably five times less than the same meal in New York. The chef, Pia Leon, is a young woman who has wowed patrons around the world with her innovative and exquisite cuisine. Her restaurant sits above her husband’s famous Central where she previously was working. The site of these two set in a beautiful garden is worth a visit in itself.

While enjoying each course I was distracted by a young couple sitting a few tables away taking well choreographed photos of her eating. I asked them about it on the way out and they have their own blog that has allowed them to travel the world and eat at places like this! Take a look at “Cheat Day Eats”.
