Having eaten many times at La Mar, this time we decided to venture a bit further and give El Mercado a try. We were positively surprised and invite other La Mar fans to copy us.

This was a culinary treat of great proportions. The ceviches was phenominal (even for peruvian standards) and the grilled octopus even better. The lecche de tigre and pisco sour are must haves to drink. Venue really cool and great staff.one of many highlights in lima
