After Lima we headed north – our destination; Barranca – a town not even 200km from Lima…
There’s only one reason to plan a trip to Barranca in our opinion… and that reason is to visit the oldest archaelogical site in South America… a site that is older than the Pyramids in Egypt!! As this site is SOOOO special it gets its own post… so lucky for me, on arrival in Barranca we discovered a second reason for visiting – FOOD!?! 🙂
We ate very well in Barranca – and left hoping more of the same would be available as we headed even further north into Peru….
Barranca seemed to have a VERY big sweet tooth… there were cake shops everywhere, and for those still wanting a sweet hit but were on a diet(!?!) HUGE fruit salads to be consumed… or else you could opt for a small chocolate bar!?!? What did we do – we ate it all 🙂 🙂
When we weren’t getting a sugar hit, we were getting a spice hit 🙂 Barranca is the only place in Peru where (to-date) we have found a version of the Chilean Sopaipillas that we so loved.
Barranca gets the food thumbs up!?!
