We were so impressed with the food we had all over Perú, but some of our best meals were enjoyed in Lima.
Here we are José Antonio's, a very swanky (yet still quite reasonably priced, by American standards) restaurant just across the street from our digs at the Colegio Santa Maria.
Marina Rizo-Patrón had strongly recommended this restaurant, and we weren't disappointed by the taste, or the presentation, of the food. A big thank you to Sally for treating us to this meal!
We had a homier, but still quite delicious, lunch at the Santa Maria Reina residence, where Uncle Nelson lives. Lúcama yogurt smoothies—yum!
Having a young person along meant we had to eat at a chain restaurant at least once. There was a Chili's a block from Santa Maria Reina. We were quite surprised to see the signs below on the walls in the restaurant; they made us feel quite at home.
And here was our last meal in Perú—we knew we were going to miss the excellent, economical cuisine. This restaurant was a very nice one in Uncle Nelson's San Isidro district. [Apologies to Debby for getting cut off—Henry's usually more careful with his framing, but maybe he didn't have room to back up far enough.]
