The Top Ten

1 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 food is definitely the most undefeated food of South America. I have travelled to most south american countries and I can confidently say Peruvian food brings the most variety, flavour and all round perfection.

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!

Lots of magic flavors, unique tasty dishes, from marine, highland up to amazonic food, an unforgettable experience, for sure

2 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.

Peruvian food is excellent, Mexican food is excellent and magical, its funny how Peruvians get all hyped up about food lol Mexico doesn't care

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.

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

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.

3 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, 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.

Love Colombian food

Colombian food is terrible. Sorry.

Colombian food is by far the best because I am from there

Colombia has the best food of South America

5 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

16 Guatemala Guatemala, officially the Republic of Guatemala, is a country in Central America bordered by Mexico to the north and west, the Pacific Ocean to the southwest, Belize to the northeast, the Caribbean to the east, Honduras to the east and El Salvador to the southeast.
