Restaurants

Casual dress is the order of the day. Reservations are seldom necessary. If you're on a budget, look for the excellent-value set menus at lunchtime, where a three-course meal can be as little as S/15. Throughout the south seafood is king, and you will never be far from a plate of cebiche or camarones (shrimp). In Chincha and rural villages closer to Lima, there’s Afro-Peruvian fare like tacu tacu, seasoned and fried rice and beans. In Ica, try tejas, candies made of manjar blanco, a sweet, pudding-like milk spread. A treat available only during harvest festivals is cachina, a partially fermented wine.
