Latin America is right around the corner – Peruvian delicacies at Lima56 in Vienna
Today I want to take you on a different journey – a journey that won't involve any planes: a culinary journey to Peru – without having to fly all the way to Latin America. If you know me you know my love to almost anything from there: the language(s), people, landscapes, beaches, mountains, valleys, long bus rides, pure happiness of the people that live there and surely the cuisine as well in all its bright colors and tastes.
Where could I find a restaurant like that? In Vienna, of course! The restaurant Lima56 offers a unique and cosy atmosphere with delicious Peruvian delicacies. I tried most of them and I'm pleasantly surprised with the rich taste and diversity. I can't wait to travel to Peru this fall and try even more of the local dishes and drinks!
