10 best Peruvian dishes you should try before you die

English, Foooooood, peru

3 – Makis estilo peruano

Yes, I know. Makis are not Peruvian food, but Japanese. But I didn’t see in any other city such a high amount of Sushi and Maki restaurants as I saw in Lima. This is because of the big influence of Japanese immigrants to Peru in the 19th and 20th century.

Makis are the little cylindrical rolls, that are wrapped with the help of a seaweed, soy paper or cucumbers. That’s just the outer shape, inside of a Maki there can be a lot of tasty and colorful ingredients. Makis are not served apart but come in a whole team. Depending on the restaurant, one plate of Makis can come in either 8 or 10 or 12 units.

But a very interesting experiment is to order the Peruvian Maki style. Usually, every restaurant in Peru offers in its menu a special section with Peruvian editions. These Makis transfuse the tasty Peruvian dishes in micro size into the basic Japanese snacks. So, you can order a little Ceviche or Lomo Saltado in a tiny size – Isn’t that amazing?
