Mercado San Ramón: what is it like and what is served on the renovated Calle de las Pizzas?

The recovered San Ramón passage from Miraflores, also recovered from several years of bad reputation, it 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 face much more friendly, fresh and ‘instagrammable’ than the one we knew until a few months ago.

The passage is now more open, without the abrupt invasions that prevented a quiet walk 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 specialized in artisan pizzas, pastas and Creole food. The Choco Museo, the palace of Peruvian chocolate, also has a terrace to 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 Lamiáceas cocktails in the Orquídea bar, live the experience of having a bubble tea in Ten Ren or stay in the sports bar The Old Pub, a business located in this passage since 1997, among many others.

But when walking towards Bellavista street, the impressive and new Mercado San Ramón jumps out. This imposing corner contains a great variety of gastronomic offers that in a single visit will not be able to satiate. It will be necessary to return for the Tarapotina food of Patarashkita, enjoy new experiences with Indian food in Zaika or the amazing natural fruit ice creams frozen in liquid nitrogen from Cool and Cream. The options are so varied that you will have to choose between having chifa, anticuchos, makis, pastas or meats for lunch.

Nachi Benza, the creator of Food Rockers, a fast food restaurant with full burgers 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 food truck that has always been with us at events and concerts ”, Benza tells us as he prepares two of the most famous options in the place.

It is the hamburger of the house, the Rocker Burger, 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 is crusted on the outside and juicy on the inside. It goes with double cheddar cheese, an onion ring, pickles and Jack Daniels BBQ sauce, ”describes the chef.

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 the plants we make different drink alternatives such as fruity, relaxing, digestive infusions, good for the respiratory system, energy, kombuchas (tea ferment rich in probiotics), fruity smoothies with vegetable milks or natural yogurt”, Zea comments. When preparing these infusions, with abundant Ayacucho honey, the scents of grandmother’s concoctions, with lemon verbena, chamomile, lemon verbena, muña, mint and other Peruvian herbs, appear immediately. Vegan desserts are well worth trying in this space that breathes nature.
