Peruvian Food

This is part of an article I wrote for the company I work for in Lima.  I write articles and snippets geared towards people who are looking to move abroad and are thinking about Peru.

“Perhaps one of the biggest fear for people when moving away from their home country is the fear of what new foods they will be eating, and whether or not they will be able to eat as they did at home.  In Peru, this should not be a concern, as the country is regarded worldwide as being a gastronomic feast for the palette. 

There is a wide range of choices to choose from ranging from mild to wild! Traditional dishes such as ceviche, papas rellenas (stuffed potatoes filled with meat) and pollo a la brasa (rotisserie chicken) can be had anywhere.  If you are a bit more adventurous, you can try a local delicacy, cuy (guinea pig).  Food varies according to the region, but just about everything can be had in cosmopolitan Lima.   

If you are feeling a bit homesick, you can always find plenty of choices from the USA and international cuisines such as, Chinese, Indian, Mediterranean, Japanese, Italian, etc.   And of course, there is Starbucks and even Pinkberry.”
