IQUITOS - PERU

TYPICAL FOOD AND RESTAURANTS

There is a wide offer of different regional dishes in the cities and towns on the banks of the Amazon river. In Iquitos, the main city of the region, restaurants offer an acceptable service and a variety of dishes sophisticated enough to satisfy the most refined of tastes.

If you feel like trying new flavors, why not sample some of the local fresh water fish, such as "paiche" and "dorado" or vegetables such as "palmito", all of which are unique to this region of Peru.

The "Juane", a kind of "tamal" filled with rice, minced chicken and pork, chonta yucca and wrapped in "bijao" leaves, a special plant of the jungle, is one of the region's leading dishes. It is especially prepared on the "Dia de San Juan" (Saint John's Day), June 24th. The "Inchicapi", another traditional Iquitos dish, blends the flavors of peanuts, yucca, corn flour, "sihuca" and squash with chicken.

A refreshing soft drink is prepared with "aguaje", a native regional fruit. Alcoholic beverages are masato, the juice of mashed yucca left to ferment, or a have a shot of Siete Raices "Seven Roots", a well-known concoction capable of giving anyone a good jolt!
