Travelling to Lima - did recs, PLEASE

A must try also is "Chifa" chinese food and sushi. For sushi I loved Hanzo. While in Lima stop by Wong, one of Lima's most popular grocery stores, that's one way to really get to know the culture.

Cheap chowhound recs in Miami(miramar)

How about Argentinian Che Pibe on Pembrike Road, Peruvian chicken El Fogon on Dykes and Miramar Prkwy, Uruguayan El Gaucho on Miramar and Red Rd.

Looking for the best Pumpkin Muffin recipe

Just as I was about to give up on Pumpkin Muffins, I gave Emily's Pumpkin Muffins a try, love the recipe! They came out light and flavorful, not dense or gummy likeother recipes. Next time will add nuts and dried berries, maybe orange zest too.

Lima Review

This city just keeps getting better, saddly not the traffic. Had dinner at Central in Miraflores, food was superb, service was flawless, a must try. Had Sunday lunch at Punta Sal good but did not WOW me like other rest. I enjoyed Costanera 700 and Pescados Capitales much better. Lunch at Danica, good pastas, rissotos, paninis, salads but their desserts outstanding, loved Merengado de fresas. Pizza at La Linterna in San Isidro, try their signature salad. Drinks at Cala in Costa Verde, great Maracuya sour and Aguaymanto sour.
If your in Lima check out Wong or any other grocery store, you'll find spices, herbs, jams, oils etc. I always get cinnamon, HierbaLuisa( LemonGrass) tea Bags, sacha Inchi Oil (48% Omega 3) , Well just browse and have fun!

Eating in Peru, Recent Adventures

Gaston Acurios's Chicha in cusco was great, sorry I didn't post it earlier, were there in June. I would also recomend Tres Keros in Sacred Valley, not many tourist, best pisco sours.

Anything good in West Broward?

Aquoalina in weston is pretty nice, also italian food.

Korean Restaurants/Markets in Broward/Miami areas

There's a Korean restaurant on Sheridan and 196 ave. at the Bergeron Plaza, it's called K. Bistro, haven't been there yet. Broward County by the way.

New Restaurants in Broward

I also thought the food was good but the servicewas excellent. Has anyone tried Village Tavern? I didn't like any of their signature cocktails, overly sweet! But good wine list.

New Frozen Yogurt in west broward

I just tried LUTZ frozen yogurt, next to Muvico off I-75. They only offer two flavors, original and green tea, it tasted very fresh and tangy, liked it a lot.

I always use the baby food jars, prune, bananas or any combination. I've had great results.

Columbian Dish for Class Project - Need Suggestions!

I,m peruvian so how about Papas a la Huancaina, Aji de Gallina, Empanadas (Peruvian, Chilean or Argentinian they're the best and not fried). From Chile you could try Pastel de Choclo. To find Peruvian recipes go to Almost forgot about Alfajores, in Miami you can find them in Peruvian or Argentinian stores.
