It is winter time in Perú and here in Lima where I am from and live, it is almost 100% humid and gray in winter. So for those days that the sun doesn’t come out (almost every day in winter) who doesn’t want to eat something warm and delicious?

There is a Vietnamese restaurant very close from where I work and that is where I went for lunch today. I ordered their famous soup PHO and it was very very good.  Before the main dish, it  is good to order an appetizer.  We ordered  for an appetizer I ate spring rolls that were the best I have ever had. 

I’ve been to the USA and visited Vietnamese restaurants (very few) and ate their version of spring rolls that were just ok for me. The best one I have eaten are made by this restaurant called Viet. I think they are doing a pretty good job on their food and the service. 

PS: sorry about the pictures.  I got really excited to eat when I remembered to take the photos,  so probably they are not the best pics lol

arroz-con-patoWho has been in Perú know that peruvians are very proud of their food!….I always like to go to different restaurants and this is one of the dishes I really like…there are not so many places that make good as this place I went to. It is called “Mar y Tierra” by San Isidro.

When I Looked and smelled this Arroz con Pato (before eat it)  It made my mouth water and I knew that it was going to be so good and guess what…. I wasn’t wrong!! The duck was so soft that you didn’t need a knife to eat it.

This dish have a main ingredients duck (of course), rice and cilantro….one of the secrets that a lot of chef used is beer or chicha de jora (kind of drink of old peruvian cultures) and they put on the side some onions salad which make a good combination when you eat it.

I think if you never have eatten this dish you should give it a try! 🙂

Have you ever tried Cebiche?? I know that in different countries have their own style to make it.

I hear that in some countries they put tomatoes or avocado….In Perú the cebiche does not have too many ingredients and I think that is so delicious. The basic ingredients are fresh fish, onions, limes (green ones), spice peppers, and if you want to add sweet potato or corn it will be good!

In some countries they cook the fish with the lime juice but I think that is not the good way to make it….the best way is just make it and eat it right away! Mmmmmm Peruvian Cebiche.
