5 of the Best Street Food Finds in Lima


(upbeat electronic music) – [Narrator] Welcome to Lima, the only Latin American
capital facing the ocean, a culinary North Star in South America. The cuisine draws influence
from both the land and the sea. And we’re here to explore,
of course, the street food. In the neighborhood of
Surquillo you’ll find a one-man band cooking some
of the best seafood in town, it’s a dish with a serious kick. (exciting music) (speaks in a foreign language) Head toward the neighborhood
of La Punta in Callao and meet Juan Hernandez, a fishmonger turned
sandwich-maker-extraordinaire. (speaks in a foreign language) Back in Surquillo we’re at
the stand of Mrs. Chinén who makes a Peruvian classic
you cannot afford to miss. (speaks in a foreign language) For those with a sweet
tooth we head to eat a dessert made from corn, purple corn. (speaks in a foreign language) Finally, we’re in the traditional
neighborhood of Magdalena, at a hidden stand serving a dish that might might you
rethink the humble potato. (speaks in a foreign language) (chiming)

  1. Papa whatever (the third vendor) speaks too fast and it's hard to read the subtitles since it comes and goes too fast

  2. As a Peruvian and not really seeing much Peruvian stuff in America this made me really happy thanks for coming to Peru and I hope You guys had a really nice time and ate good food 🤗

  3. Other capitals in Latin-america that face the ocean: Panama City, Panama; Paramaribo, Suriname; Georgetown, Guyana; Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago; Bridgetown, Barbados; Fort-de-France, Martinique; Roseau, Dominica; Basseterre, St Kitts & Nevis; Marigot, St. Martin; Port-au-Prince, Haiti; Kingston, Jamaica. Technically so do Buenos Aires & Montevideo, though they call the oceanic bay they're on the 'river plata' but it's a bay on the ocean coast nevertheless. 😉

  4. I went on a culinary tour of Lima last October. Let me tell you, some of this food looks simple but it is delicious. Causa was one of my favourites while there. chicha morada is a perfect drink to accompany meals!

  5. South america is full of countries with cuisine culture that is not about hot dogs french fries or burgers.

  6. Its a tough choice but I think I would go with the fish sandwich, the ceviche is a close second. Everything looks tasty though.

  8. Technically, La Punta is in el Callao which is part of the Constitutional Province of Callao. Therefore, is part of the Department of Lima but not part of Metropolitan Lima.

  9. @Great Big Story, Lima is not the only Latin American city facing the ocean, Havana, San Juan, GeorgeTown and other small islands in the Caribbean have their capital cities facing the ocean 😜

  10. "The only Latin American capital facing the ocean". Panama City is literally sitting on the waterfront of the Pacific Ocean.

  11. Bruh, for the first one, you’ve gotta be having one fucking shit day to drink that stuff, like it’s a smoothie with onions

  12. Puerto Rico, which our capital is San Juan, is also facing the ocean, plus, we are part of Latin America so, that info is wronggggg

  13. The video starts with a false statement. Not only Lima but Caracas, Paramaribo, Georgetown, Montevideo, Buenos Aires are some of the other Latin American Capitals facing the Oceans as well.

  14. TL;DR – Street food restaurants list https://maps.app.goo.gl/vUWiXsJX6MkCnAqk8

    I'm not sure why they don't include the a list of restaurants and addresses featured in this video. I watched the video and figured out the restaurants on the Google Maps 🗺️

    Enjoy!
