Heir to ancient cultures from the time of the Inca Empire, Peru is a magical spot which involves one of the richest biodiversities on earth, along with 10 world heritage sites including Machu Picchu and the Nazca Lines. It is known for extensive Andean ingredients including potatoes, tomatoes, corn and chili pepper as well as botanical products and herbs that have high nutritional value and distinctive qualities.
Try the emblematic Peruvian appetizer ceviche, seafood and onion marinade with lemon and a traditional Peruvian dish Lomo Saltado which was adopted into Chinese – Criollo Cuisine, stir fried with beef, tomato, potato and yellow chili. After the meal, delightful Peruvian sweets such as mousse using lúcuma, native Peruvian tropical fruit, Mazamorra Morada made from purple corn and more will be available.
To complement the culinary delights, Peruvian wine Tacama—very rare in the Japanese market—will be offered along with a wide range of Peruvian drinks such as Chicha morada, Pisco Sour and Inca Cola. Beverages are available with an additional charge.
