Crossing borders does not mean leaving your roots behind, and certainly not in your food. Latin American charm always speaks from its dishes. So in this article we will reveal which Latin American restaurants are the most recognised by Tripadvisor, the world’s leading tourism platform, which serves as a reference on our travels, since eating is a sublime duty on every trip.
In the heart of the Spanish capital, in the traditional neighbourhood of Arguelles, you will find the most acclaimed cuisine by tourists, especially those who cannot live without Peruvian cuisine. From the entrance, you can see an elegant, intimate and colourful atmosphere. Tasting delicious tagliatelle a la huancaína with grilled octopus in anticuchera sauce or a superb lomo saltado will immediately transport you to Peru.
Peru never ceases to appear in any part of the world and this cuisine amazes all its diners. Located in the Barrio de las Letras, this restaurant was born from the dream of two brothers born in Callao, Peru, who have been living in Madrid for years. Like the name, the Causa stands out in all its versions (Limeña, Prawns, Pickled). Here you can also find a variety of typical dishes such as Ají de Gallina or Arroz con Pato (rice with duck).
In another part of Madrid, Paseo de San Francisco leads the way to Cherry Pecas, a restaurant where Mexican burritos take over the table. Their food has been certified by Tripadvisor three years in a row. Guacamole, quesadillas, tacos, nachos and more. The menu is extensive, but it is born from the gourmet-street concept that prevails in Mexico all the time.
With 3 locations, this gastrobar with a Latin American soul is spreading more and more throughout the Spanish capital. It is a smaller place, but with a colossal menu. Peruvian, Venezuelan, Mexican, Brazilian and more. Their list is endless, but their cocktails steal the show, such as the Oaxacan Jaguar or the Jaguar Passion. The dish and the glass never disappoint in this house.
There was a day in December when Colombia dawned and the news reported that a restaurant had been awarded a Michelin star, a tourist guide recognised all over the planet. That was Quimbaya, where the pleasure of changua, carimañolas and more Colombian recipes captivate customers. Located near the Calle de la Castellana, it is one of the best alternatives for the palate.
