PERU AMONG THE TOP 10 CULINARY DESTINATIONS IN THE WORLD
Discover the Best of Peruvian Cuisine: National Geographic Ranks It Among Top 10 in the World for 2023
Peruvian cuisine has made its mark on the international food scene, as confirmed by the prestigious National Geographic magazine. In a recent article titled “The Ten Best Gastronomic Destinations in the World in 2023,” written by renowned food and travel journalist, Lucía Díaz Madurga, Peru is praised as one of the world’s premier culinary hotspots. According to the article, the country’s flavorful and unique dishes are attracting an increasing number of foreign tourists who are eager to indulge in Peruvian gastronomy.
National Geographic’s article highlights several acclaimed restaurants located in Lima, including Central, Maido, Mérito, Mayta, La Bodega, and Juanito de Barranco. Peru’s gastronomy is listed alongside that of other countries, such as Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Morocco, Italy, France, Thailand, Japan, and Spain.
Peruvian cuisine owes much of its global recognition to chef Gaston Acurio, who has championed the country’s culinary culture through his restaurants. Acurio’s efforts have inspired the development of numerous high-end restaurants, not just in Lima, but throughout Peru. For example, Central has expanded to include Mil, a restaurant and supply center located in Urubamba, Cusco. Other notable restaurants include Chicha by Gaston Acurio and many more.
While Lima boasts the majority of Peru’s famous restaurants, excellent dining options can be found throughout the country. So why not come to Peru and experience the country’s extraordinary cuisine for yourself?
