Lima cause
If a dish is recognized in Lima, it is the cause, a luxury entry made from pressed potatoes seasoned with lemon juice and chili, stuffed with chicken, fish or shellfish. It could be said that there is no Lima who does not enjoy this dish that represents the city so much.

Sigh to Lima
This traditional dessert of the Peruvian capital has a layer of white delicacy made with milk, sugar, egg yolks and vanilla essence, topped with a meringue made from egg whites, port wine and sugar. Its combination on the palate is delicious.

Choritos a la chalaca
Made with choros, mollusks from the mussel family that are eaten accompanied by an onion, tomato, coriander, lemon juice and corn kernels. This dish is tradition in El Callao and is usually consumed as an entrance or snack accompanied by Pisco Sour.

Parihuela
It is the traditional soup of the port of El Callao and combines fruits of the sea such as crabs, choros, shells, octopus and various types of fish cooked based on Peruvian dressings, yellow chili pepper, ají panca, and an acid touch that can come from the lemon, the wine or the chicha de jora. It is consumed mostly in winter and is very popular on the Peruvian coast.

Mazamorra morada
This dessert has been a source of pride among Lima since colonial times, as it is the most representative. Made with purple corn, of Arabic and Spanish origin, with an unmistakable Peruvian touch.

Picarones
The streets of Lima are full of a sweet variety, the picarones being one of the most traditional. They are made with pumpkin and sweetened with chancaca honey.

 

The list could be extended much more by counting the dishes that are typical in this gastronomic capital, full of so much diversity and wealth that can be enjoyed in our Delphos Bistro restaurant at Delfines Hotel & Convention Center, commemorating the anniversary of our capital.
