As the sunny days fade into gray overcast winter in Lima, I’m reminded of last winter. During the deep of a Lima winter (June-September), you will need to go inland to get some sun. These are some restaurants in Cieneguilla where one can go to get a meal and more importantly, vitamin D. This short list is from long time expat residents of Lima.
Mesa de Piedra – Av. Nueva Toledo Km. 27.5, Lima 40
El Jardin – Av. Nueva Toledo 146-B, Cieneguilla
Parque Molle – Av. Nueva Toledo 215, Cieneguilla
Kankay – Km. 30.5, Calle Carrizal, Cieneguilla
I went to the place that started the Peruvian chicken craze, but that was not far enough inland. Still, the fries (and chicken) were very good, and I liked the gift shop.
