We got to the airport early abd of course... I was starving. This one little spot has these empanada. Daaayum were they good! One was meat and potatoes and the other was cheese. They hit the spot. We were ready for Lima!
The hotel we stayed at was a little modern hotel by the plaza. It was nice. Not Yawar Inca nice but I can’t complain because that one place had mold growing on the walls...
We has a couple hours until our Barranco food tour with Nacho. Not Daniel but it’s ok. He was sick. We were disappointed but it’s all good. Nacho was nice. We joined a family from Denmark. It was a lovely night. I enjoyed the Barranco tour much more than Miraflores in terms is the area and food.
We states with a mussel. Let me tell you... that one mussel was so effing delicious. I believe it was at a place called Ventabarron. It’s right by the plaza. We then took a walk and saw some amazing murals. Nacho told us a lot about the work and the area we took photos. I fell in love with local artist Jade Rivera. His work is pretty amazing. We passed his gallery and put that on our stops for our one day in Lima. We stopped on a place called Javier’s and had beef heart (antichuchos) and potatoes. It was pretty good I haver to say. The wine pour were huge so our Denmark friends shared it with us. How nice of them!
After Javier’s we walked around the town. Saw some more murals and then stopped at La Féria, a weekend flea market. It was so cool. Many artists selling their work. There was music, food and art. What’s better than that?
Nacho got us a dish (lomito saltaldo) at restaurante criollo AnAnAu. It was a chifa dish. Basically a stir fry of sorts with fries at the bottom. Whatever. It was yummy! We wish would could come back to the market but the next day was Monday as it wouldn’t be open. I took a card from a t-shirt place to see if I could find them later.
One would think we were done but nope. We stopped odd to grab a dessert. Actually we were suppose to grab a drink but Nacho said the lady who sells them was not there. I personally think he should have taken us somewhere else but we skipped that part and moved onto a desser. I forget what the dessert is called but it looks like onion rings. It’s basically yuca with drizzled syrup. Not bad.
We were finally getting to the end of our food tour with nacho. We stopped off ah Tostada Bisetti. They are serious about their coffee. I had an espresso and my friend had a hit chocolate. All was good. We even planned on stopping back the next day.
It was a good night in Barranco. Nacho shared an Uber and we made our way back to the hotel.
