Huaca Pucllana

On Thursday night, the entire group ventured out to the Huaca Pucllana restaurant.

Huaca Pucllana is a large adobe pyramid ruins located in the enter of the Miraflores district. There is a wonderful restaurant on site with a large patio overlooking the ruins.

The food was really delicious and we all tried a Peruvian white wine and an Argentinian red wine. I had the Creole Style Chupe, a typical Peruvian crab chowder, served with corn, lima beans, cheese and topped with a fried egg. The broth had a wonderful flavor and the soup was chock-full of the ingredients.

Cody had the Filet of Paiche, also known as arapaima, one of the oldest, largest freshwater fish in the world, breathes air and can grow to 500 pounds in shallow, muddy waters in the Amazon.
