Coming in at number 8 on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, as determined by top chefs and other industry insiders, is Maido, run by chef Mitsuharu ‘Micha’ Tsumura. Maido is the result of Micha’s passion for Nikkei food, which is a Japanese-Peruvian fusion style of cooking. The menu runs from exquisite Japanese sushi classics to original creations such as “cau cau,” a pre-Columbian potato stew, given a modern twist with the addition of sea snails. This is another Peruvian restaurant that’ll treat your palate to something new and unique.
