Korean food in Lima: 6 unmissable restaurants to discover their cuisine


With no room for fusions or adapted recipes, this restaurant is for purists; those in search of purely Korean dishes. The menu is marked by the fermented (the star is the kimchi with its salty and spicy flavor) and boiled meats.

Once again we find ourselves before a restaurant that adheres to tradition. Initially, they expected their clientele to be purely Korean; but they soon realized that Peruvians liked this seasoning. Among the most popular are kimbap, a typical dish consisting of a rice roll with various ingredients (vegetables, meat, fish, etc.) and all wrapped in seaweed. Also bulgogi, the well-known Korean barbecue; and ttokbokki, which is made from rice cake and is usually bought from street vendors in Korea.

The craving for sweets. If we are looking for a family comparison, bingsu is a kind of slush or thin ice cream that is served with sweet toppings. First, a generous layer of granita is served -made with a special machine brought from Korea- and then it is accompanied with the chosen filling: fruits, condensed milk, delicacy sauce, fudge, etc. It is crowned with a generous portion of toppings.
