Given the fact that 40% of travellers come to Peru for gastronomic tourism we are following on from Megan Malley’s ‘foody’ blog about Cicciolina in November. Here we have a review of another of Cusco’s high end restaurants; Limo! Go ahead Megan… https://www.facebook.com/limocusco
Limo restaurant has one of the greatest dining views of the city. If you book ahead and request a table on the enclosed balcony, you will be looking right out over the beautiful flower-filled Plaza de Armas and the surrounding cathedrals. It is also the best place to go for gourmet Peruvian food, and is particularly renowned for its ceviches.
For those with an interest in gourmet Peruvian food, this is one of several restaurants run by Coque Ossio, an internationally renowned Peruvian chef. I started the night with a Pisco Sour, the traditional cocktail of choice here, but the menu also includes an enormous selection of drinks made with different types of Pisco. The kitchen always sends out a complimentary cup of crispy potato wedges with three traditional Peruvian dipping sauces. I ordered a main course of Asian-style ceviche, which was absolutely delicious.
The menu is well thought out, and the dishes are complex and flavorful. The sushi at Limo is unbeatable, and if you sit at the bar you can watch the chef make each roll by hand.
Well then, thanks to Megan for her Limo review. Look out for the third and final installment covering 4 more unmissable eateries in Cusco, Peru: South America’s leading culinary destination 2013, World Travel Awards http://www.worldtravelawards.com/winners2013-12.
