Mercado 28: A New Culinary Stop in The Heart of Miraflores

Mercado 28 opened its door last month in the heart of Miraflores, the vibrant Lima’s district. This is the first gastronomic market in Peru’s capital city, following the culinary trend worldwide, just think about Italy, USA, Spain and Mexico. Gourmet markets are not only a trend, but they give locals and visitors the opportunity to try a huge variety of food and beverages in one place and learn about ingredients and regional dishes. It is a real culinary experience, a moment to share with your family and friends and Mercado 28 in Lima is also a lot of fun.

The concept is easy: there are almost 18 culinary proposals located in the same building, the second floor of a shopping mall, which serve their signature dishes. Some of the food stalls are new and some are well-known to the general Peruvian public. The system is easy, it is based on the self-service concept. You go to the food stall of your preference, place your order and then you pick it up. To eat you can seat in one of the sharing tables placed all around. Basically there is a great variety of gourmet food in an easy going and relaxing atmosphere.
