When entering the picantería, the diner already realizes that he is in a very special place. The picantera wears a huge hat and in the kitchens there are no gas balloons or blenders but stoves and fulling mills.

“In these kinds of places, ancestral dishes survive that if it weren’t for the picanterías they would have become extinct. Mrs. Lili told us how since she was a child she has been in the picanteria seeing her grandmother and then her mother and she had the vocation to continue with the legacy, in addition, the whole family is involved in the business. It is a very beautiful environment ”.

“That they leave us the data”

The “Misias but travelers” They have earned a place in the hearts of several Peruvians and those of us who know them. When they leave the country we miss them and they also miss everything here, especially the food, as we had already commented at the beginning of this article.

“A Peruvian since he was a child eats delicious at home and when he grows up he seeks the same experience. We are used to things getting rich. When we are in another country we miss everything. In other parts of the world eating is not a pleasure, but is part of survival. Here (in Peru) we hope that it is time for lunch ”.

“Our subscribers always say they have the best huarique and that is obvious because the gastronomic offer is vast. Therefore, we always invite you to leave us the data. All Peruvians have a good huarique. Foreign visitors are shocked by the price. Eating in Peru is quite cheap ”, conclude.

And how do they do it?

Although many of us envy their work, this is not easy at all and requires a lot of discipline. Fatima and Daniela pay for their trips with the profits from the Tiendita Misia, a space -which for the moment only works for delivery- where they sell products for travelers that they themselves design.

All items are made in Peru and the women test the prototypes on their longest trips. After strict quality control, they put them up for sale. “Although the prices are not the most misery, the products will accompany them until the end of the world”.
