  • and here is the rice that is awesome it's such  an interesting mix of flavors like you have the  

  • sweetness of the plantain okay then you have the  savory rice and then the texture of the egg which

  • and my food just arrived  just in time all right guys  

  • very excited for this my food is  finally here and i got the ceviche

  • get if you ordered it as street food  it comes with whatever this is i don't  

  • know if this is like calamari friday it  sure looks like it yeah it's something

  • that's delicious we have the sweet potato that  is an absolute musk giant grains of the the  

  • white corn the red onions and then you have the  tiger's milk which is the juice of the ceviche  

  • because ceviche is fish cured in lime juice  and then you just get the different ingredients  

  • mixing together and you get almost like this cold  soup that you drink at the very end of your meal  

  • that looks so good we'll be sharing the  fish is so tender yeah so so tender my gosh  

  • and it's like limey and zesty andlittle bit spicy from the red aji pepper

  • that wonderful meal how did you enjoy that  that was a feast of feasts i am in official  

  • rotunding mode yeah i mean i basically finished  that mountain of rice it was so good i mean it's  

  • exactly what i was craving it's funny because  like when i went into when i first went into the  

  • into the food stall area i didn't know what i was  gonna get and then i saw that on the menu i'm like  

  • that's the one amazonian yeah i guess i missed my  time in the ketos from many years ago yeah so in  

  • terms of the prices both of our dishes were justlittle over seven dollars not quite eight and like  

  • sam mentioned the size like the portions were  abundant it was a lot of food very filling yeah  

  • the chicha morada was just over a dollar yeah  local prices were talking like 20 28 to what 30  

  • something solid 30 something sold yeah exactly low  30s and then the the chichamurata was five solos  

  • exchange rate at the moment is about 380. so  um yeah tremendous value i mean we we ate for  

  • we ate and drank for like about 15 bucks or  something yeah yeah we're going home like just you  

  • know stomach sticking out so that's a good sign  and that is the first of many markets we'll be

  • here in peru i don't want it to happen someday  only once once a day all righty so today we are  

  • visiting our second market here in miraflores  it is called mercado san ramon it opened on  

  • what used to be the pizza street or pizza alley  before remember that actually yeah yeah never  

  • had a pizza there but i remember we walked by it  yeah and apparently this market has 25 different  

  • booths where once again you can get food from all  over the world fantastic so yeah pretty excited to  

  • eat and we'll bring you along i think i'm going to  go international today to be honest sharam awesome  

  • so

  • okay guys so the food is here and today  we both went international i went for some  

  • classic american diner food sam's gone for  japanese but i just wanted to introduce you  

  • to this burger it is called the rocker  burger and it's two patties smushed together  

  • fried on the grill lots of cheese  it has tomatoes lettuce it looks  

  • so good but now the real test let's take  a bite and see what this is all about

  • it rocks does it roll the bun is so good is  it wow fluffy brioche bun beautifully toasted  

  • the burger is just so juicy and then the cheddar  cheese it's like a really good burger reminds me  

  • a bit of like shake shack in and out not quite in  that category this is a gourmet burger yeah and i  

  • just got the burger on its own but if you want to  you can get it as a combo with fries and then for  

  • my drink i went for the sacred valley drink and  this is a smoothie it does have a beautiful flower  

  • lovely presentation and it has blueberries  strawberries blackberries it has yogurt  

  • and this looks like a little lemongrass  straw is that possible it could be let's see

  • i feel like this is the healthy component to the  meal equally delicious but it like balances out  

  • the greasy fried food and then i'm still getting  some fruits in here so yeah this is really nice  

  • super cool market we're gonna go back in later  film it a bit more in detail because there's like  

  • really cool art in the ceilings and it's just  super colorful it has a beautiful outdoor patio  

  • great views of the former pizza street so yeah  lovely spot if you're in the neighborhood of  

  • miraflores this is a really cool market to  check out and now we are moving on to samuel's  

  • sushi ceviche yes all right so i am ordering  the very special and uniquely peruvian acid  

  • mackie so basically this falls under the genre of  nikkei cuisine japanese cuisine is very popular  

  • in peru in fact you can find almost as many nikkei  restaurants as you can traditional ones at least  

  • in the area we're staying and this is a peruvian  twist on sushi so it has what appears to be like a  

  • unique kind of mayo and sesame sauce and then we  also have here avocado british shrimp tuna yeah  

  • really excited for this i'm so hungry and lots  of stuff going on in this in this mackie roll

  • wowzers that is a level 10. guys  what makes this so interesting  

  • there's like a variety of textures in the bite  you've got the crispiness and crunchiness of the  

  • breaded shrimp then you also have the  creaminess of the sauce so rich and tasty  

  • then you have another layer of fish the avocado  oh my gosh that is good i wish i had this  

  • in more locations around the world because this  is something i'd eat in canada if it was available  

  • yeah peruvian japanese fusion is so good so good  and yeah this is the only kind i got so that's the  

  • end of the taste review right there amazing food  yeah and unlike yesterday nada not gut busting  

  • so we'll have room to to finish this  video today for dinner we're to come back  

  • and have dinner market a different market but  anyways we're moving on to the price point so  

  • i'm going to give you the current exchange  right now about 10 us dollars is about 38 solas  

  • so in terms of what we had your drink i think came  to 12 soles you said then your burger was 20 solis  

  • and my maki was roughly 30 solars so in terms  of price point about seven dollars for my mackie  

  • just a bit more your burger was slightly over  five us dollars and the drink roughly three  

  • so again a pretty affordable meal i mean we're  talking like 15 16 to come and eat here in total  

  • gourmet food nice setting lots of options in terms  of where you want to sit down and dine you can  

  • be outside you can be inside you can be upstairs  downstairs so yeah really cool market and um yeah  

  • it's been eating so well around miraflores  we can't wait to see what we have tonight

  • all right good morning guys morning guys third  day of market hopping i would say here in the  

  • neighborhood of miraflores yesterday we ate so  much that we couldn't go out to another market  

  • for dinner we just decided to postpone yeah so  what happened was your mom ended up getting some  

  • delicious ceviche from huang yes and also some  treats and there's a little wine involved so  

  • yeah we just didn't make it for dinner because  we were stuffing our faces in our apartment  

  • but um yeah we're back out for round three it's a  new day i'm hungry and today we are taking you to  

  • mercado vintiocho which means market number  28. this one is also in the neighborhood of  

  • miraflores just like the previous two but indifferent direction though different direction  

  • so we're getting to walk around the neighborhoodbit exactly different roads each time same hungry  

  • uh disposition i suppose we've always got an  appetite we've always got an appetite and um we  

  • can't wait to see what we find there right yeah so  we'll see you shortly with more food sounds good

  • fiesta

  • greetings so this is now our third market andhave some opinions and thoughts on what it's like  

  • to go to these these little markets these kind of  like food court style of dining areas so what's  

  • really impressive to me is that every market we  visited kind of has its own distinct flair and  

  • uniqueness about it this one in particular hasbit more of a party environment you've got the bar  

  • in the middle you've got kind of that lively music  going on now the other thing i've liked about all  

  • of these markets so far is that the quality of the  food has been excellent the portions have been big  

  • and the most versatile part about it is if you're  coming with a group of friends and you're all  

  • meeting you've got so much variety to choose from  everyone gets what they want and if they're still  

  • hungry afterwards they go out and order more or  grab a dessert or have an extra drink so yeah  

  • i've been really impressed by the the style of  markets here in lima like i said on previous  

  • visits we didn't go to any of these so this is  a new experience and something i'd recommend  

  • wow that's great okay guys so i got one of the  classic peruvian dishes done four different  

  • ways this is called gauza and it is made withspecial yellow potato that you only get in peru  

  • and it's typically served with avocado it  also has aji which is a nice yellow spice  

  • and basically i've gotten it with a chicken with  cilantro with raw fish you know how much ceviche  

  • is king here this one has shrimp and this one  has mushrooms and they also have like a little  

  • bit of avocado and mayonnaise and it just looks  delicious so we're going to dive in in one second  

  • but first let's have a sip of  my beverage i got a derva derba  

  • lemonade so this is a lemongrass  lemonade nice and green

  • and very refreshing this tastes like the tropics  this is so good wow here we have the four  

  • caustitas we're gonna start out  with the chicken with cilantro

  • so good i'm obsessed with cilantro  i know some people hate it they say  

  • it tastes like dish detergent but i'm one  of those people that just loves the flavor  

  • i cannot get enough of cilantro  so i love the chicken one
