Peru is a country that is rich in culture and tradition, and one of the ways this is expressed is through its delicious cuisine! As a food lover, I was thrilled to explore the wonderful variety of dishes that Peru has to offer. Here are some of my favorite traditional foods in Peru:

1. Ceviche

Ceviche is a popular dish that can be found throughout Latin America, but it is said to have originated in Peru. It consists of raw fish marinated in lime juice, onions, and chili peppers. The acid in the lime juice "cooks" the fish, giving it a tender texture and tangy flavor. It's often served with sweet potato and corn on the cob. I tried ceviche at a little street vendor in Lima, and it was absolutely delicious!

2. Lomo Saltado

Lomo saltado is a stir-fry dish that combines tender beef strips with onions, tomatoes, and French fries. Yes, you read that right - French fries! The dish is usually served with rice, and it's a perfect example of the fusion of Peruvian, Asian, and European flavors that make up the country's cuisine. I had lomo saltado for dinner at a fancy restaurant in Cusco, and it was a real treat!

3. Anticuchos

Anticuchos are a popular street food that consist of marinated beef heart skewers grilled over an open flame. It might sound a bit strange to eat beef heart, but trust me - it's delicious! The meat is tender and flavorful, and it's often served with a spicy sauce called ají. I tried anticuchos at a food stall in the Miraflores neighborhood of Lima, and they were a real highlight of my trip!

4. Papa a la Huancaina

Papa a la Huancaina is a popular appetizer made with boiled yellow potatoes covered in a creamy sauce made from cheese, milk, and aji amarillo chili peppers. It's often served with lettuce, hard-boiled eggs, and black olives. I had this dish at a little cafe in the city of Huancayo, and it was a real comfort food - carb-filled and satisfying!

5. Cuy

Okay, I have to admit that I didn't try this one myself - but I have to include it because it is such a unique Peruvian dish! Cuy is guinea pig, and it's considered a delicacy in Peru. The meat is often roasted or fried and served whole, with the head still attached. It's definitely not a dish for everyone, but it's an important part of Peruvian culture.

Overall, the food in Peru was absolutely amazing - so much variety, so many flavors! I highly recommend trying these traditional dishes if you ever have the chance to visit Peru. And even if you can't travel there right now, you can always try making them yourself at home!
