You are going to laugh, but I have been learning to eat street food. You see, I lived and traveled in India for 40 months, and upon arrival, I met a few expats who told me about violent illness they had from eating street food in India. So I stayed away from it until now. When I met Qiang Hui of Hobo Ventures, she was always trying street food everywhere we went and was never getting sick. So I started trying it and haven’t gotten sick yet either.

Street Food: (Barranco) In front of this grocery store you will find the food cart in the above picture. I really loved their avocado sandwich. It is literally only avocado and bread. They also have egg, cheese, and sausage sandwiches. They also have a few warm drinks that are delicious. Quinoa and Emollient. We would run in the mornings and stop here for breakfast. For 3 sandwiches and two drinks, it costs about s/7 or 2 USD.

La Canta Rana (Barranco): This place has great food so is packed at lunch. This is a favorite for locals but many tourists show up here also. It costs a little more than typical Peruvian restaurants, but cheap compared to US prices. Not far from Barranco Plaza.

Manantial Restaurant Vegetariano (Old Town Lima Area): When you are on your old town walking tour, this is a great choice, especially for vegetarians. The uch special here was s/10 per person or 3 USD.

Central Restaurant (Miraflores): The accolades are endless for this place. Best restaurant in Latin America. 5th Best in the world. Best chef in the world. Bring your money with you. We never made it here but we were told it can easily cost 100 USD per person.

Oma Tita Comida Vegetariano(Barranco): This guy was great. Peruvians are very European in nature as a former Spanish colony. Lunch is typically their largest meal of the day. This booth in a typical Peruvian market serves a beautiful lunch for s/11 3.5 USD. It includes a juice, a soup or salad, and a large main entry.

Vagabond Buddha’s Kitchen: I love to cook. The ingredients to make a super spicy marinara pasta was about 3 USD for two people. Qiang was making elegant rice with greens and garlic dishes for about 2 USD for two people.

I am not offering you these prices.  These are just my notes and estimates from the time of my visit and this post.  Your costs will likely be drastically different if significant inflation or deflation occurs or the market changes after this post.  I will not update these numbers until I am on the ground again here, if ever.
