Restaurants in Latin America
The flavors of Latin American cuisine are as rich as the cultures—exotic, spicy and as varied as the dialects of the 21 countries. Restaurants in Latin America make use of the diversity of flora and fauna that the continent produces, so diners can splurge on the bounty of indigenous seafood, game, vegetables and grains. Latin America restaurants range from beachside stalls with fresh fish tacos, bursting with spicy salsa to internationally renowned dining in Lima. Chef Gastón Acurio of Astrid y Gaston in Lima is considered one of the most innovative chefs in the world. His beautiful restaurant resides in a colonial hacienda, but you won’t even notice the décor when you are sampling his wonderful Peruvian haute cuisine. If you are eager to try some of the famous steak from the gauchos of Argentina, you should be sure to look up Cabana Las Lilas in Buenos Aires. From the Oaxacan tamales of Mexico to the salty ceviche of Peru, the food is delicious, and Latin America restaurants will offer the finest opportunities to indulge in these culinary delights.
