Peru is really having a *moment* as of late. After another successful run as the país invitado at the 10th edition of Feria Masticar, another special celebration kicks off today and runs through next week. Peru Week brings together more than 20 restaurants across Buenos Aires, offering specially designed menus at unbeatable prices, ensuring you can overdose on as much ceviche, causa, and suspiro limeño that you can get your grubby paws on.

In recent years, much attention has been placed on Peru’s rich and complex culinary history and tradition. While many tourists set their eyes on retracing the steps of the Inca by huffing and puffing their way to Machu Picchu, scores more embark upon a sort of gastro-pilgrimage, eager to devour the country’s cuisine. After all, the top two restaurants honored in 2019’s Latin America’s 50 Best are both located in Lima: Maido and Central (Lima’s Astrid & Gastón snagged the No. 8 spot, in case you were curious).

This is the second edition of Peru Week, and hungry comensales will find a healthy variety of menus and price-points no matter the occasion. Of course, you can go big with La Mar or Tanta (AR $1,300 and AR $800, respectively), some of the city’s most well-known Peruvian restaurants. However, why not give some of the other incredible, lower profile, spots a go? We recommend the menú criollo at Chan Chan (AR $690), an iconic fixture that is no longer the “best kept secret” it was once, known for its cool ambiance and budget-friendly prices. Why not head over to Primavera Trujillana where its menú marino will set you back just AR $450? Take note, you’ll need to book your table in advance in order to access the special deal. If none of these tickle your fancy, give Quechua Restaurante a go, which for just AR $650 promises a veritable feast in one of Almagro’s quietest side streets.

If all this talk of fabulous food has given you the ganas to pack your bags and travel the source, you’re in luck! Part of Peru Week includes special deals on both flights to Lima and Cusco and travel packages across the country.
