Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants 2020

Postby billybob72 » Tue Dec 08, 2020 6:43 am

Surprised Windsport didn't post this because Peru had a strong showing as usual, big shock for me is Astrid y Gaston slipping to 22nd place, that's like Alianza getting relegated from the top tier! :shock:

Colombia has had a strong showing this year, I liked the food in Colombia, it's simple but I had plenty of decent food there to be honest! El Chato at no.7 is an excellent result for Colombian cuisine!

For those who don't know or understand what an analogy is:

At its most basic, an analogy is a comparison of two things to show their similarities. Sometimes the things being compared are quite similar, but other times they could be very different. Nevertheless, an analogy explains one thing in terms of another to highlight the ways in which they are alike

Nice to see Osso, La Mar and Isolina on the list. Not cheap places, but not off-the-wall expensive/high brow either.

Speaking of Alianza, in fact they do have an "unofficial" restaurant called "Mi Barunto". It's a cebicheria located in La Victoria a block away from the stadium. We've been a couple of times and the food and service is excellent. https://www.mibarrunto.com/.

I don't think any on the team have any ownership of the place, but you get the vibe that it is dedicated to the team, and the players show up all the time. I'd recommend a visit.

There are folks to watch your car if you decide to drive.

The only - I suppose it was kind of high-brow - is Astrid y Gaston's Chifa restaurant at Plaza Salaverry - it was very good and excellent value but had to wait to get a table! Next time I am in Lima, I will give those places a go!
