the recovered San Ramon Passage from Miraflores, also recovered from several years of bad reputation, begins to light up from 6 in the afternoon. It is impossible not to be amazed by the new face of the former Calle de las Pizzas, a much more friendly, fresh and ‘Instagrammable’ face than the one we knew until a few months ago.
The passage is now more open, without the abrupt invasions that prevented you from walking calmly on the boulevard, with beautiful terraces that invite you to sit quietly and order, as before, a pizza at La Glorietta, this Italian-Peruvian restaurant specializing in artisanal pizzas, pastas and Creole food. The Choco Museo, a palace of Peruvian chocolate, also has a terrace where you can sit and drink a cup of chocolate or its organic cocoa-based desserts. In the new Calle de las Pizzas it is possible to have some Magnolia, Brote, Chlorophyll or Lamiaceae cocktails at the Orquídea bar, live the experience of having a bubble tea at Ten Ren or stay at The Old Pub sports bar, a business installed in this passage since 1997, among many others.
But when walking towards Bellavista street, the impressive and new Mercado San Ramón jumps out at you. This imposing corner contains a great variety of gastronomic offers that in a single visit you will not be able to satisfy. It will be necessary to return for the Tarapotina food at Patarashkita, enjoy new experiences with Indian food at Zaika or the amazing natural fruit ice creams frozen in liquid nitrogen at Cool and Cream. The options are so varied that you will have to choose between chifa, anticuchos, makis, pasta or meat for lunch.
Advantage He visited some of the places inside the Market and this is what they present:
Nachi Benza, the creator of Food Rockers, a fast food restaurant with full hamburgers and rock, tells us that he opened this place a little less than a month ago and the success is resounding: “6 years ago we opened the first place in San Borja, this is the second. We also have the foodtruck that has always accompanied us at events and concerts”, Benza tells us while preparing two of the most famous options in the place.
It is the house burger, the Rocker Burguer, it is like a classic with lettuce and tomato. “They are all double smash, that is, two squashed hamburgers, burned very hard and fast, which leaves a crust on the outside and a juicy inside. It comes with double cheddar cheese, an onion ring, pickles and Jack Daniels BBQ sauce”, describes the chef.
The other equally delicious option is the Much Cheese Burger, one of the most iconic and best-selling. It has three types of cheese: cheddar, edam and mozzarella, and a whole ring of fried caramelized onions. It is sold with chips and Poison, the house drink. Other options are Pop Burguers, Bacon Cheese Burguer, Metal Burguer, Funky Burguer and more.
2. 1800 Tequila
An immense bar surprises when entering the second floor and it is 1800 Tequila. Barman Fredy Gómez quickly whips up some of the most colorful and eye-catching cocktail options on the menu. The Guaranguito, which immediately reminds us of the famous song by Lucila Campos, contains rum, granadilla, passion fruit, mint and top de jager. Another cocktail is El plebeyo miraflorino, it goes with whiskey, pineapple syrup, hibiscus flower essence, soda and rosemary and orange garnishes, a refreshing cocktail. Another option is La flor de la canela, also a musical name, which with rum, coconut milk and coconut cream, a sweeter option.
3. Medicine Bar
With Jorge Zea and Diego Marroquín at the helm, the Medicinal Bar is a comforting option with drinks that take us back to childhood. “From the essences of plants we make different beverage alternatives such as fruity infusions, relaxing, digestive, good for the respiratory system, energetic, kombuchas (tea ferment rich in probiotics), fruity smoothies with vegetable milk or natural yogurt”, Zea comments. When preparing these infusions, with plenty of Ayacucho honey, the aromas of grandmother’s concoctions, with lemon verbena, chamomile, lemon verbena, muña, mint and other Peruvian herbs, appear immediately. It is well worth trying the vegan desserts in this space that breathes nature.
Not to miss Calle de las Pizzas is Génova, a pizzeria with at least 5 types of pizza: pepperoni, ham, three cheeses, Hawaiian and carnivorous. All options are sold personal and for the whole family. On average, the pizza is made in 10 minutes, depending on the number of orders. In addition, in Genoa they offer caprese, caesar or fresh salads; meat, chicken and cheese empanadas; cheese, pepperoni and ham calzone; panini and drinks such as chicha morada, passion fruit and iced coffee.
