Peruvian food is quickly creeping up to being one of the best foods in the world. I continuously see it on lists. I have only had it in the U.S. but have really enjoyed everything I have tried.

Mexican food( in Mexico) rocks. I was just in Valle de Guadalupe, Baja California. They produce pretty good wines and are pairing them with fresh seafoods, meats and greens in new Mexican creations. The chefs in Baja right now have been garnering a lot of international attention, and for good reason.

I've heard that from a lot of people And it got me thinking that I've never really heard of Chilean food. I've had Peruvian, Colombian, Brazilian, Argentine food but never have heard of people going out to eat Chilean food.

There is Chilean food, and the cuisines are there.. but they aren't quite as unique and distinct as some of the other countries'.

If I was going to base my travels on food, I don't think I'd pick Chile. I also wouldn't pick Chile if I planned to only stay in Santiago.

I'm hopefully looking to make Chile a permanent residence in the near future, however I think if I was traveling for 2 or 3 weeks and looking to find a place with really interesting cuisines, music and festivals.. I'd go with Colombia.

Yeah its OK if Chile doesn't offer this , I still would like to travel around there. I think my next trip is Chile/Peru. We were thinking of doing the World Cup in Brazil but they have already jacked up all the prices and it is expensive.

I have had Chilean friends and they have been very nice people.

I tried Peruvian food in manhattan and I did not have a good experience, but I'm a very optimistic person. If I have a bad experience with a particular dish, I tend to find myself researching more restaurants of that nation because overall most countries on this planet produce good food. So I'm going to head to a Peruvian area in NYC and give it another shot. I'm sure I'll love it when I do so.

To add on to my international taste buds. I had a class assignment to bring food to class as a background lesson. My parents are Haitian and I actually got the best grade and even gave the professor the recipes.

It's always a good thing to try food that you aren't too particular with. I'm craving for some dishes from Saudi Arabia.

Yea, I'm thinking Jamaica ave in the Woodhaven sections around 104th street? I was heading to the gym in Jamaica and saw a bunch of Peruvian restaurants isolated in one section on the ave under the J line.

There's many. This one in Jackson Heights is pretty good.
