You may be wondering why I’m posting a restaurant review when we’re all in the joys of quarantine and social distancing.
Well, it’s because 500° is actually one of the restaurants in Lima offering a take away/delivery service at the moment, and so I wanted to share with you some of the items on their normal menu when we visited a few weeks before the lockdown. Continue reading
So I may have just returned from Japan, but I can’t help myself when it comes to Japanese food.In Peru, however, you’ll usually find it as part of a fusion style of cuisine called nikkei, and it’s super delicious. Continue reading
