Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro praised Peruvian cuisine, admitting that it inspires him.
In mid-January, De Niro “ate the whole menu” in one of the most expensive restaurants in Lima. He tried 16 dishes from various clams and herbs. The restaurant chef then stated that the actor’s gastronomic tour had just begun.
“The food was excellent. Really phenomenal. I tried to visit as many restaurants as I could. I urge all of you Peruvian chefs to continue to do brilliant things. It really inspires,” De Niro said in a video message published on Facebook.
