2 days in lima: what to eat?

seoulspot | Apr 23, 2011 03:44 PM

So my friends and I will be in lima for 1 full day and then for another dinner, which means probably 4-5 meals in Lima...after reviewing the board, I've come down to a tentative eating plan which I'd appreciate some tweaking and suggestions/opinions:

Full Day:
1. Breakfast: Manolo's for coffee/churros (what is the typical peruvian breakfast?)
2. Lunch: Ceviche (seems like the consensus is either Pescados Capitales or La Mar but am definitely open to other more local suggestions)
3. Dinner: either something casual like Pardo's, something japanese (osaka, toshiro have gotten some coverage), or some chifa food
-Am also looking for anywhere for smaller snacks throughout the day--have heard about the ice cream at gelateria 4-d or empanadas at buen gusto.

Then for the last dinner, we were thinking something a little more upscale with good seafood...have heard very mediocre feed back for astrid y gaston.

Any ideas, particularly local favorites, would be greatly welcome!
