VerSabor peruano por el mundo en un mapa más grande
Happy Independence Day, Peru!
Yes, we all know that Peru is widely known for their pre-Columbian Inca site, Machu Picchu, but if you know anything about Peruvians is that they are very proud of their diverse cuisine.
And, with good reason. In October 2011, Frommer's picked Peru as their Top Food & Drink Destination of 2012. Lima is now drawing a new flock of visitors who travel all the way to Peru just to eat.
But, do not fret. You don't have to travel all the way to South America for a taste of Peru's cuisine. Luckily, Peru's national newspaper, El Comercio, compiled a Google map of Peruvian restaurants around the world.
From Los Angeles To New York, this map has got you covered. Try some ceviche (a dish is typically made from fresh raw fish marinated in citrus juices such as lemon or lime) or pollo a la brasa (Peruvian rotisserie chicken) but don't forget a well-done Pisco sour (cocktail made up of grape brandy and lime or lemon) juice, syrup, ice, egg white, and Angostura bitters).
With over half a million Peruvians in the United States, it's no wonder so many Peruvian restaurants have starting popping up all over the nation.
DISCLAIMER: ¡La comida peruana es la mejor del Mundo! which translates to, "Peruvian food is the best in the world!", is what you will hear every Peruvian say... just embrace it, there's no point in arguing.
¡Que Viva Peru!
