If you live in Downtown Miami and you haven’t tried Peruvian food yet, or if you are a passionate foodie who wants to have “on file” the best places to go to enjoy good food, we bring you what you need: a list of 4 incredible places. We have titled this guide “Best Peruvian Food Downtown Miami”.
In Peru we are foodies from the womb. We love good food and the world knows it. Peruvian gastronomy is one of the most varied and extensive in Latin America, the result of a long cultural trajectory that starts from the culinary knowledge of ancient Peru that has developed and taken the best of the cultures that generation after generation have migrated to our beloved country. That is why our food is rich in flavours and origins. In fact, its flavour, colour, variety and nutritional contribution made it consolidate since 2011 as “Cultural Heritage of the Americas for the World”.
Let’s see what you can get in downtown Miami. ¡Buen provecho!
What characterises Peruvian food?
Dishes full of colours that connect with nature: yellow, red, green and white are some of the colours that stand out the most. The ingredients that are usually protagonists in their dishes are: seafood, fish, a diversity of potatoes and corn, quinoa, avocado, chilli peppers and spices. All this makes their dishes have a great nutritional value and their flavours are very particular.

Chifa food, which is our speciality, is Peru’s best-hidden gastronomic secret. Every Peruvian who migrates to another latitude misses eating chifa because it is as common in our country as any other dish of their local gastronomy.
Chifa food has established itself as a true culinary delight due to its ingredients and cooking techniques that you can’t skip on your gastronomic bucket list.
Chef Anson Tou Liu leads the kitchen at our two restaurants in Miami. The mission is to preserve a family tradition and cultural heritage that we take personally.
