Features
Great value, Popular with locals

Food lovers from all over Latin America fly in for a taste of Mistura, the largest food festival in the continent. An annual, two-week event held in September, Mistura—the brainchild of Peru’s culinary godfather Gastón Acurio—gathers purveyors of exclusive tasting menus to owners of humble huariques (street carts) as well as producers from around the country. This is the place to sample the best deep-fried cuy (guinea pig), pachamanca (meat and vegetables cooked in an underground oven), Chifa (Chinese-Peruvian), and Nikkei (Japanese-Peruvian) dishes in Peru among countless others under one open-air roof. Food zones divide up into Regional, Street Carts, Anticuchos, Rustic, Fishermen, Breads, and Sweets. Daily entry is $8, dishes from $3.
