    Lima Zoo has lots of animal, also rare ones. A funny looking water pig begins to be rare, too. It's the biggest rodent in the world. Original name is capybara (Portuguese). It's very brave and peaceful, it is afraid of nobody. Maybe for that reason so rare. They should be afraid of men, at least, because people make food from it before Easter Saturday. It is considered as fish, because it is living in the water.

    Maybe the best chicarrones you may get here. Place is rather small and on lunch time you often have to make que. There is no beer for sale, but instead you may have good chicha morana.

    Favorite Dish: Chicarrones are made by marinating pork meat (or chicken) in rum, and then browned in oil. There exists many variations, but here the taste is very good. Usually it is offered with camote, but here it is put inside of a white bread. It is not diet food! Seldom you are so hungry that you can have all, so you may ask a plastic bag for carrying the rest home.
