Peru restaurants

Peru is home to South America's only Cordon Bleu cooking school, approximately 3,000 varieties of potato, and only slightly fewer celebrity chefs (of whom Nobu Matsuhisa was one, for a time). Though you can satisfy almost any culinary craving in Peru's restaurants, from falafel in Cuzco to sashimi in Lima, the country is traditionally divided into three gastronomic sectors: the coast, best known for ceviche and pisco; the Andean region, for the aforementioned potatoes plus corn (choclo), and, well, guinea pig (cuy); and the jungle, for massive river fish (paiche), yuca, and innumerable—incredible—fruits. A final note: For a Peruvian food that's slightly less expected, stop into one of the ubiquitous, locally adored Chifas (Chinese restaurants) for chaufa (a variation on the fried rice theme) or wan tan.
