Peru Food by the Kilo The large grocery store close to the Hotel called Plaza Vea sells Peruvian food by the Kilo. A person goes to the buffet counter, chooses their food, weighs it, then pay for the kilos of food.
The girl has weighed my bowl of beans and soon I will pay, I was eating something close to ham and beans my mother made at home.
The food at this buffet counter seems to change daily; I enjoy the opportunity to see what I am eating, before I buy it. One of the annoying parts of travel is going into new restaurants and never being certain what I will eat because it the first time in the restaurant.
There is an incorrect belief that Peru is primitive, this area of Lima is modern and expensive, and this grocery store reminds me a large Krogers or Walmart in the USA.
The truth is almost every country in the world is a combination of modern and primitive, the farther you go from the city the more primitive it becomes.
The farther you go from the city the friendlier it becomes and cheaper.
