Peruvian cuisine is famous the world over for its interesting local ingredients and unique blend of culinary influences. Paracas is no exception, with an unbelievable amount of delicious local food to sample during your visit.
With its well-placed position near a number of small fishing villages on the Pacific coast, the obvious choice in Paracas is seafood and fish. Lining the beach boardwalk and adjacent streets are dozens of small seafood stands serving up ceviche, the delicious lime-marinated raw fish plate often considered Peru's national dish, and other seafood favorites such as jalea, fried pejerrey and much more.
If seafood and fish are not your thing, there are plenty of other options available in Paracas. Popular Peruvian standards such as lomo saltado (stir-fried beef with french fries) are easy to find as well as many excellent international restaurants serving anything from pizza to barbecue ribs.
