The Top Ten

1 Peru Peru Peru, officially the Republic of Peru, is a country in western South America, bordered by Colombia and Ecuador to north, Brazil to east, Bolivia to south-east, Chile to south and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Peru is mostly known for being where the Inca people originally came from. The capital of more.

Peruvian cuisine is diverse in every sense. Every dish has different flavors, and textures. If you go to the South, North, or even the Jungle of Peru, you will find different delicious dishes. I would say that Peruvian food has a unique flavor and seasoning that makes unique the Peruvian Cuisine. I would recommend to try Peruvian food, you won't be disappointed. Just give it a try and you'll see all the great flavors that you will find in this amazing cuisine.

If you're alive, you're in luck to eat Peruvian food!

Peruvian food has the oldest ingredients from the ancient times in South American. As traditions and countries evolved, the same food tactics around the continent stayed and started to create a lot of different food varieties.

I'm a student and hoping to buy a home soon, and the first thing I'm going to learn is cooking Peruvian food.

The food is fantastic, the ingredients are sometimes hard to find depending where you live, and it doesn't take too much time once you get used to making these incredible plates.

I recommend you to find a Peruvian restaurant around your area but make sure it has good reviews for best taste results!

Sorry Mexico, But Peruvian food is by far the best. Its unique flavors and seasoning make it simply outstanding and I'm from the Caribbean

Best variety and superb flavor! Love it all!

2 Mexico Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

It doesn't make sense to place Mexico fourth since all latin American food has a foundation in Mexican food, we are the home of chocolate, tomatoes, corn, Chiles, and so on it doesn't make any sense.

It taste good but that's about it...on the other hand, Peru has more flavors and variety of dishes. It appears than half of the Mexican population do not agree that their food is the best.

I personally cook Mexican dishes, and I promise, once you taste it, you will fall in love with it

Lol Peru’s food is meh at best. We practically invented the basic staples of overt Latin American dish. No hate to Peru, I have a friend from there, but no way does Mexican food come second. Peru takes third, maybe second, but not first.

3 Uruguay Uruguay Uruguay, officially the Eastern Republic of Uruguay, is a country in the southeastern region of South America.

All the immigration from Spain, Italy, France, Portugal, Switzerland, Germany etc...brought all the best from those nations to Uruguay. I grew up eating pasta, cabbage rolls, asado, tortilla espanola, shepherd's pie, casoulet, schnitzel...what's not to like?

4 Colombia Colombia Colombia, officially the Republic of Colombia, is a country situated in the northwest of South America, bordered to the northwest by Panama; to the east by Venezuela and Brazil; to the south by Ecuador and Peru; and it shares maritime limits with Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Jamaica, Dominican Republic more.

5 Brazil Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

Brazil is so huge you can find absolutely different dishes from south to north. The only difficult thing to find out is which one is more delicious.

Brazilian food is unknowned for the vast majority of people. That's why is not considered the first.

I am in love with coxinhas S2
