After lunch, Cesar took me to try deserts made from the Peruvian fruit "lucuma." We had lucuma cheesecake and lucuma brownie. I liked this as well. The flavor was a bit similar to key lime, but more subtle.
My second (and last) night, Cesar and I headed to a famous restaurant called La Bodegita de Hugo Plevesiane. We shared a burger and salmon dish for dinner.
But, the real treat was the desert. Again, we shared.Boncanera de chocolate (basically a chocolate lava cake with ice cream on the side)
Crocatente de almendras (almond brownie with ice cream)
Cesar and I closed out our night with Passion Fruit Sours at Huaringas (another famous joint). Many people think that pisco is from Chile (I did when I was in Chile), but in fact it comes from Peru.
Finally, here is some "choclo con queso," or corn served with a block of cheese and some spicy salsa that I got on my tour of the Sacred Valley.
The one thing that Lima is famous for and that I didn't get to try is ceviche. Oh, well...next time.
