Lima has an amazing food scene going on here, with countless restaurants specialising in food from all over the world, not just Peruvian cuisine. On a tip from a couple of Peace Corps volunteers, I decided to check out Tarboush in Miraflores.
It had been a very long time since I had Middle Eastern food, and I was craving a chicken shawarma plate before I even entered the restaurant. I searched the menu for it, and found it for $24 soles.
It came with a choice of fries or arabic rice, and I of course chose the rice. The serving of chicken shawarma was huge! And full of flavour. It came with a side of tahini and hot sauce, which I drizzled over the shawarma.
There was a side of undressed salad, which could have been better with a lemon dressing, or better yet tabouli.
I will definitely be back to enjoy a good shawarma, and next time I’ll order a side of hummus and pita.
