I was inspired by my last post to think of some favourite locations here in Lima that I find myself returning to again and again. Obviously there are so many amazing places to eat here, and some of those I’ve been to a few times, or wish I could visit more often, but these are the places that have remained a constant over the last few years. These are also the places that I continuously take people that come to visit me as I always know I can trust the quality.
As you may have noticed there have been a few exciting changes around here, with the name being the most obvious!
After a few years of focusing the blog almost solely on my new home I felt that I wanted to share much more than just Peru. Splitting my time between two continents has given me many opportunities, both back in the UK and the countries between, which I wanted to talk about but didn’t feel I could while it was still A Slice of Peru as it would be fairly unrelated (the name was a bit of an obstacle). I thought about starting a separate blog to talk about lifestyle, travel and food outside of Peru, but in reality a lot of it would still be based here in Lima, as it’s where i spend the majority of my time, so it seemed a little repetitive! In the end I decided to re brand my current blog, so that it would still include all my recommendations for Lima and Peru, but also give me the platform to expand my topics of conversation. So, while there will be some new additions to the blog, it will still be a helpful guide for the things I enjoy so much here. After all, moving to Lima was the reason I started this blog a few years ago!
Overall, I want this to be a site for you to read if you are interested to learn more about the capital of Peru and what there is to enjoy when you visit here, but also for me to share other interests both here and abroad that might inspire you too. I’m really excited to get writing again, I’ve missed doing it these past few months!
There will still be alterations and updates over the next few months, but I think the main part has been completed now. If there’s anything you would be interested in reading, please feel free to comment below with any suggestions or you can also find me on Twitter @littleedition or Facebook @thelittleedition!
See you soon!
Wicks is an English pub in the heart of Lima brewing and serving up traditional British style beers and pub grub, and it truly makes me feel like I’m back at home.
There are so many places in Barranco that I still need to try, so this is actually a much smaller list than it should be. I have the longest checklist of places to visit but there just isn’t enough time to visit them all. We have some firm favourites here that we keep getting drawn back to time and again, and we forget to try new spots. Probably a good problem to have though! If you have any favourites, please let me know in the comments below.
This following guide is to go alongside my List on Google Maps, ‘Emma’s Barranco Highlights’. It explains my choices in more detail and shares any extra information I may have posted before. Links for the different locations are available through the map and I hope this helps give you some inspiration for your next trip to Barranco.

(Update July 2017 – Mo Café is no longer located here but if you want to try their food, you can follow their Facebook page to find out where they will be opening next!)
I love eating and tasting dishes from different places, so when I find a location that has multiple food places in one space, I am so happy!
Colonia & Co. is a great example of this and is located inside an old house in the heart of Barranco. It’s home to three different food spots, plus a bookshop and a clothes store all linked into one space.
This is the first neighbourhood guide for my favourite locations in Lima and it’s about the district of Miraflores. There are so many amazing places to see here, so the list is pretty long. However, there are always places for me to add as new places pop up, so don’t forget to check back!
This guide is to go alongside my List on Google Maps, ‘Emma’s Miraflores Highlights’. It just explains my choices in slightly more detail and shares any extra information I may have written previously. Links for the different locations are available through the map. I hope this helps give you some inspiration for your next trip to Miraflores!

Peru is just full of musical talent.
But I’m sure you already knew that.
I have discovered so many great Peruvian artists since living here and I would love to share a few of them with you. Some of the following artists are famous worldwide, and others are more nationally well-known, but all have their own Latin flavour and style.
