You may already be a fan of tempting tacos or choose an occasional ceviche from the menu, but Latin American cuisine has so much more to offer than the well-known staples.
The food and drink of Latin America
Chile & Argentina
In Chile and Argentina, asado (meaning to grill or barbecue over wood) is exceptionally popular. Beef, pork, goat and Patagonian lamb is grilled and served with delicious salads, dips and freshly baked bread. Washed down with a pisco sour, a traditional and refreshing cocktail, you have the makings of a mouth-watering meal.
Peru & Mexico
Over in Peru, the food scene is becoming widely regarded as one of the best in the world. The country’s capital city, Lima, has seen the opening of many new restaurants, a handful of which have made it on to the prestigious ‘World’s 50 Best Restaurants’ list. And let's not forget Mexican cuisine - a food heritage so revered it's been recognised and protected by UNESCO.
