my friend, wong supermarkets have this online store where you can browse items and even make shopping list delivered to your home or to be picked up at the store you select. check it out at https://www.wong.com.pe/FO/supermercados/index.go
I can see this one and only mascarpone brand
Queso Crema Mascarpone - Delice Pote 227 gr. S/.15.50 Uni (Mascarpone cream cheese Delice. 1cup jar)
I've tried this "Delice" brand before, and it is a budget friendly brand, they have their own stores, I visit that one located in minka.
about the truffles... I have never bought them before, as the average joe I am, lol, but I will be looking for them anytime I go buy my ingredients.
Have you checked out this mercadolibre item?
mercadolibre is a website similar to ebay here in latin america, I would help you contact the seller if you want. http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.pe/MPE ... umbria-_JM
anyways, they are selling that little jar for $100 more or less.... That must be a good truffle, or the scam of the century, I coulndt tell.
Overall, Lima is a big growing little city, you have to do your little research in order to get what you want. There is always room for a little bit of everything.
