Peruvian cuisine has managed to position itself as one of the best gastronomies in the world thanks to the creativity of the new batch of young chefs that emerged from the famous culinary boom of the last decade.

Chefs such as Gastón Acurio, Virgilio Martínez or Jaime Pesaque are already recurring names in prestigious international competitions, which have decided to extend local borders. But there are also other new promises that are timidly and courageously taking on the world's major capitals such as London, Los Angeles, Hong Kong or Milan.

In this list we leave you 5 of the best Peruvian restaurants that are making people talk in their host countries.

Located in the Hotel Mandarin Oriental, this restaurant of the famous chef Gastón Acurio offers its guests the opportunity to taste typical Peruvian cuisine in the heart of Florida.
