You’re watching Vagabrothers. We’re in Lima, Peru, and this is a cow heart. Good morning Vagabuddies. Welcome back to Lima, Peru. We are in the Parque de Amantes, as you can see by this. I think it is Parque de Amor. Well, it’s love or lovers. Either way, it’s a cool place, great view, and we have an awesome day lined up. Lima, as we said, is one of the best food cities in the world. It’s combining a bunch of different influences from indigenous Andean recipes, European, and even Asian. We’re going to go around exploring the city, and we’re starting off with a spot right down here to get one of the most typical dishes of Peru, ceviche. This is crazy. It feels like home in an interesting way… like the road down there feels like the PCH. These cliffs kind of feel like Santa Monica or Torrey Pines where we’re from, where there’s a glider port. I mean, check this out. You’ve got para-gliders flying right in front of us ten feet away. First stop of the day is at Punto Azul, a classic ceviche spot here in Miraflores. There is a bit of a debate about where ceviche comes from, but most historians agree that ceviche as we know it today originated here in Peru in colonial times. The predecessor of the dish was brought over from Spain by Moorish woman in the south of Spain, but basically it’s just raw fish mixed with lime, lemon, onions, chili pepper and that kind of citric juice actually cooks the fish without flame. Yeah, so it’s served cold. There’s a bunch of different takes on ceviche. We’ve quickly found that the biggest challenge in making this video is that there’re simply too many good restaurants to feature here in Lima. A lot of them also are really, really, really good restaurants like Central, which you might have seen in season three of Netflix. It’s one of the best restaurants in the world. It’s definitely the best in Latin America. A lot of those restaurants need reservations, and they can be really expensive. So what we’re going to try to do in this video is show you places that are easily accessible- some that are more expensive than others, some of that are cheap and from just sandwich spots. We’re going to try to show you guys a balance of quality and price and have a great time exploring Lima. This places is a very famous ceviche spot. We’ve ordered the classico. It’s kind of like a mix of a bunch of different types of ceviche, and we’ve been joined by our buddy who’s a local now in Lima. Hey guys, what’s up? My name is Luke. Nice to meet you guys. Welcome to Lima. Hope you guys like it. We knew each other through the internet, and we just met last week or two weeks ago at Buffer Fest where Luke premiered a film that he filmed here in Lima, and we realized that we’re going to be in town at the same time, so we’ve been connecting. Luke’s been down here… for what thirteen months? Thirteen months. I’ve been counting every month as it goes by. How’s your Spanish coming along? It’s okay Work in progress.. learning more every single day. So now we got some Chicha? You guys might not like it. I hope you do. Some people don’t like it. Try anything once. It’s like a corn drink from purple corn mixed with like some purple drink. Okay, so we have ceviche in the belly, and now we’re going to head down the street ten minute walk to a sandwich place called El Chinito. Next location on our Lima foodie tour is Sanguchria El Chinito. Supposedly fifty years ago, a Chinese family moved here and wanted to make affordable good sandwiches, and so we’re just posted up outside. We’re going to grab a sandwich to go. Like we said, about 3% of the population of fruit is from..is Asian, mostly Japanese. But there were some Chinese indentured servants who came here in the 1800s, and their mark is left on the cuisine. So in this case we’re having a sandwich, but Japanese food.. there’s this whole thing called Nikkei cuisine, which is a mixture of Japanese and Peruvian food. Hopefully go somewhere, try some of that, but too many restaurants, not enough time. Moment of truth. Hit it. Good Nice and fatty. This would be the perfect hangover food. I feel like to make Pisco Sours, have one of these. Good to go. Conclusion: at 14 souls are about four dollars and some change. It’s a pretty good way to get some pretty dank food here in Lima. So moving onwards. We’ll see what else we find after this. Quick stop, coffee break in San Ysidro.. a place called Puku Puku. It’s a Quechua word, which means bird that eats the sunrise, and I think they have Amazonian coffees. So let’s go have one. Now we have moved to Grimanesa Vargas Anticuchos, and they specialize in one thing: cow heart. To be completely honest, when Luke told us about this place, I didn’t know what to think. I’m not a huge fan, but we’re going to try it. It smells good, seems to be popular, and this is my first time trying Inca Cola. Tastes like bubblegum. It’s like yeah. It’s literally bubblegum. I agree, but I love it. It’s what makes us unique guys. Somos unicos. Gracias. Gracias muchachos. We’ve been now at an eating marathon. The key is just eating a little bit at each place, but go all day long. All right so… we have the green sauce, and we have the pink sauce. I think this is the ahi, right? It’s supposed to be ahi, and this is something else. Surprisingly tender. Now it’s dinner time, and we’re at a restaurant called Matria back in Miraflores. We’re going to have a quick chat with the chef, Arlete, and she’s going to tell us a bit more about the philosophy behind the restaurant. All right first little platito, we have scallops, and they have been marinated in five different types of limes. It looks delicious. I don’t know much more than that, but I’m going to eat it. So second round we’re doing a Japanese -Peruvian dish. It’s called Nikkei style cooking. This is tuna with avocado on top and then right here we’ve got some sweetbreads and chimichurri sauce with a puree of white vegetables. Bon appetit! We made it to the last stop of our whirlwind gluttonous day, and here we are at Ayahuasca, which is a pretty cool bar. And I think Luke you were saying that it used to be a mansion? Used to be a mansion, I believe. Yeah, a really nice mansion. I’d like to meet the guy who owned this place because that would be really fun. We’re going to sign out this video.
