Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. In Around the World in One City, I travel around the world and taste authentic dishes without ever leaving New York.
I first fell in love with Peruvian food like most people do, through tasting moist, tender rotisserie chicken. But that is such a small part of the wide variety this incredible cuisine has to offer.
On the second episode of Around the World in One City, I get as close to visiting Peru as possible. My friend Pedro Alarcon, who I met years ago when we both worked at Apiary, is from the rainforest areas of Peru and is the perfect guide to introduce me to such dellicacies as anticuchos, tiradito, and leche de tigre. We start with some hearty breakfast dishes at Broadway Bakery before finishing with a well-balanced feast at Urubamba.
From coast to mountains to jungle, the food of Peru is widely diverse and satisfyingly delicious. I was lucky enough to have a chance to visit the country itself this past year and I can assure you, if you don’t feel like hiking up Machu Picchu, hiking to Queens is the next best thing. Save yourself some calories and check out the adventures below.
Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. In Locals Know, I explore a new city through the tours of Urban Adventures.
I just returned from an amazing trip to Peru. And while there, I had to meet up with the local branch of the tour company I work for, Urban Adventures.
Just like here in New York, the guides at Urban Adventures in the capital of Lima get you away from the touristy areas and into a local neighborhood. On the Lima Discovery Tour, you are able to have one-of-a-kind experiences like chatting with locals, exploring the vibrant markets, and sipping an iconic pisco sour in the hotel that created it.
Get a flavor of the tour in the video below and learn more about it here. Anyone planning a trip to Peru?
Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City
It’s hard for me to do what I’m about to do, but it must be done. I have never selected a dish of the week that was not consumed in New York City. It goes against my entire brand. But I recently returned from a trip to Peru and there was one dish I tasted that puts everything else I’ve tasted in New York this year to shame. And so rules are meant to be broken.
