My parents live in the San Isidro district know for it's fine Italian dining. I haven't had any of the Italian food here yet, but I did check out some menus the other day. The cuisine here is taking on Italian in a new way - fusion this and fusion that. The most interesting one I've seen was Japanese Italian fusion. Didn't look appetizing, but I think I may have to try it.
I challenged myself once already by eating beef heart. See video. I've never had beef heart. I always thought I could do Fear Factor, but I'm not cut out for it. I had a difficult time with the heart. It was cooked well, seasoned well and tasted just fine, but the idea got to me.
Pisco sour is their national drink. I'm not a big fan of it. Tastes like margarita mix, probably cuz it's a lime/simple sugar concoction mostly. I've gravitated to Cusqueno beer. Lite taste and pretty cheap. Seems to be the beer of choice.
