Just curious on what you folks enjoy as far as peruvian dishes, i am down in Arequipa, and have been stuffing my face with rocoto relleno and chupes since i been here. Peru has amazing food, but I am starting to feel a little tight around the waistline. Sad

Ceviche! Rellenos and what is that little side dish called that has potato with a spicy kind of mayonaisse thing drizzled over it? That is good. All the yummy stew dishes are good too.

Lomo Saltaldo and Ceviche have to be my favorites. Washed down with a few bottles of Pilsen Trujillo.

How about worst Peruvian food? I nominate Papa de Huancayo which I thought was disgusting, Cuy and Canchas. A portion of Cuy has no meat on it whatsoever, terrible stuff! I found Canchas often served with ceviche, kind of like roasted nuts but they were pretty awful I remember.

just red your post Bejarano, and the potato with beige sauce is called Papa de Huancayo. The Peruvians go absolutely mad for it though. I don't understand why.

My favorite Peruvian foods are anticuchos, chicha morada and the potato dishes with yellow sauce. My fiance is Peruvian and I often get the chance to eat Peruvian dishes with her family and at Peruvian celebrations here. I am living and teaching in Mexico City, Mexico and there is a large Peruvian population here, as well as several Peruvian restauraunts.

Yes, I just tried Ceviche for the first time and it was lovely. Although Ive been eating sushi since I was old enough to feed myself, I never thought I could fit so much raw fish.

Still, the bread is so wonderful here that sometimes a ham and cheese sandwich works just as well.
