Favorite Restaurants in Lima

As travel requirements start to become more relaxed, and tourists from all over the world land in Lima again as the starting point for their Peruvian adventure, it is not uncommon for friends who are visiting the city to ask me about places to eat, so I figured it would be easier to come up with a list of some of my favorites spots (not only Peruvian food) that provide authentic and consistent quality that will not blow your budget:

As an ending note, I you are feeling more curious about Peruvian cuisine, Peru Trip Advisors can arrange a cooking class in Lima, just like they did for UK based Travel Writer Pip Jones featured on the main picture.

Disclaimer: I intentionally skipped any restaurants listed on the 50 best list as these are easily found by searching on Google for best Peruvian food.
