Are these restaurants mostly geared to expats?
Generalization here but the Peruvians I know are all carnivores.
I visited several of the places listed in Lima. Most of the other customers were Peruvians. My own place -vegan sushi bar in Arequipa- gets a 50/50 mix of travelers and locals. Not many expats. Also here in Arequipa there are dozens of local vegetarian restaurants offering a set lunch for around S/10. They are geared towards Peruvians, and Peruvians fill them up at lunch time. Very very few gringos.
So yeah, "Peruvians are all carnivores" is a generalization. A big one.
