LISBON

Restaurante Eleven . Set in it's own building in the park Eduardo VII with great views and where Joachim Koerper really merits the star the Michellin Guide has awarded the restaurant. It is expensive but, in my opinion worth every euro.

LIMA

Astrid y GastónOpened by the very popular chef Gastón Acurio and his wife Astrid Gutsche. Gastón Acurio has been a driving force in the promotion of Peruvian cuisine inside and outside Peru and one of the main exponents of what has become known as novoandina cuisine. This is the first restaurant the couple opened when they started off in Lima. Since then, Gastón has opened other restaurant and restaurant chains under different names (La Mar, Tanta,...).
Costanera 700A very good example of what has become known in Peru as Nikkei cuisine, the fusion of Peruvian and Japanese cuisines.

Maido. Considered the best Nikkei food in Lima.
Restaurante José AntonioTraditional Peruvian cuisine since 1972.
Punto AzulAnother restaurant serving traditional Peruvian fare.
San Ceferino. Started as an Italian restaurant more than 25 years ago in the San Isidro district. Today it has a large international and Peruvian menu with portions to match. Suggest you share.
El Charrua. Very good for meat.
La Granja Azul. Anticucho (grilled beef heart and chicken liver) and all the chicken you can eat, washed down with huge cocktails, just outside Lima.

LONDON

- Dim Sum in Chinatown. Service in the many restaurants in Chinatown can sometimes be erratic. Try the Golden Pagoda in Gerrard Street. Another option is CCK in Rupert Street.
