We spent the morning in Lima wandering Mercado Surquillo No 1 and 2, taste testing freshly pressed cactus-prickly pear juice, light as air and surprisingly cool cotton candy fruit and Peruvian lucuma (wonderful tasting combination of maple and sweet potato). We watched butchers and fish mongers gingerly prep their stations and fruit sellers and coca leaf fortune tellers set up shop. After wandering around for a few hours, we made our way to La Picanteria, one of our most anticipated lunch spots in the city.
After just under two food happy weeks in Peru, we’re back in Montreal and still dreaming about all the incredible things we ate during our first foray into South American territory. Lima is of course, known as the culinary capital of the continent – we couldn’t have picked a better place to kickstart our adventure !
