The complete renovation of a gastronomic district in Peru is getting people talking. Its aim is to offer more than just delicious and diverse plates, but also a space for dialogue around sustainable and inclusive food policies at local level and in cities.
A tradition based on flavour. Gastronomy on every street corner. Restaurants, huariques - which in the Quechua language refers to places where people "eat well" - and markets. This is what the new brand "Surquillo, Barrio del Sabor" (Surquillo, neighbourhood of flavour) looks like, a proposal of the district of Surquillo in the city of Lima, created in times of pandemic to reactivate the economy of Surquillo and promote access to food for everyone.
The brand's activities will support the economic reactivation of 14 food markets and 618 formally registered restaurants in the District of Surquillo.
