Ivan, Lil Dave and I got a taxi around noon on January 11, 2013.
We went to have some lunch at La Mar.
Ivan read that they have good ceviche at this restaurant. Lil Dave managed to get a banana ceviche which was oddly good. Ivan and I shared the 5 ceviche sampler for a starter.
I really enjoyed the ceviche with soy sauce. Our main course was tuna steak. It was wonderful food.
Ivan and I walked down the street to El Mercado. The menu was filled with lots of great things – too bad we can’t come back to try their sandwiches. Ivan and I shared a passion fruit chilcano and a grilled octopus.
Their grilled octopus is supposed to be the best in the city, but Ivan and I both agree that the grilled octopus at Pescados Capitales was better. The grilled octopus still tasted great.
We walked to the mall that was built right in the cliff. We had ice cream at Laritza D’. Ivan and I shared chocolate and strawberry. Lil Dave got banana of course! Ivan bought cheap headphones.
Next, we walked to the post office so I could mail postcards. We got a taxi back to D’osma Bed and Breakfast.
Later that night, Ivan and I got a taxi to the restaurant Cala. We had a reservation for later at 8 pm. We went to the lounge for a drink and sat on the balcony with the sea right in front of us.
Ivan and I ordered two pisco sours: strawberry and one with passion fruit, lemon and orange. My strawberry drink tasted better.
It was time for dinner. We walked upstairs and sat on the balcony. We got a lovely La Crin Malbec wine. We started off with a salmon and apple mixture and Lima style Tiradito. Both dishes were very tasty.
Our main courses were tuna with a chutney sauce and salmon with soba noodles. I picked our dessert which was a chocolate truffle tart which was delicious.
We had a terrific meal at Cala. It’s worth the money for the view and the lovely food.
Lima is filled with great restaurants. I wish we had more time to try more gourmet food.
Ivan and I walked to Ayahuasca Bar to get a drink. We sat in the room with the black walls and the art that looked like kites on sticks.
Ivan and I each got a pisco sour. We chilled for awhile and then walked back to the b&b.
