Through some fun and delicious activities, visitors can discover the one-of-a-kind spectrum of Peruvian cuisine, learning about its history, traditional recipes, most important ingredients and, of course, getting to taste some of its unrivaled flavors. If you’re looking to experience the world-famous Peruvian gastronomy, Condor Travel offers three excellent options that you won’t want to miss!
Huariques by Bike
This tour will take you biking around Miraflores to find some of the best ‘huariques’ in the district. ‘Huarique’ is a Peruvian word that describes small, off the beaten path restaurants, where traditional and family-style recipes are still the norm. With lots of flavor and very little fanfare, these places serve delicious meals, made with the country’s best and most typical ingredients. Bike around the lively Miraflores and discover some of these restaurants along its streets, where you will get to experience the mouthwatering flavors, colors and aromas of Peruvian food. It will be the perfect opportunity for you to explore the true essence of the country’s gastronomy. (Bike, helmet, earphones, water bottle, security kit and guide included).
