Gastronomy in the Jungle

When talking about typical Peru foods, one would not immediately think off the jungle as being part of the culinary tour of Peru. Even though the jungle kitchen is not as elaborated as that of the typical Peru food of the coast, they do have some very special and typical dishes that are definitely worth a try. Especially “Juane”, a dish made of rice and chicken, but boiled in banana leaves so it becomes a sort of tamale. Dishes served with rice and beans or lentils are legion and with the many rivers it is no surprise that fish is part of the daily jungle diet. Typical Peru foods from the coast have also reached the jungle looking at the large number of Chifa’s that you can find in most jungle cities. Ceviche in many forms made from river fish can be a delicacy especially taking into consideration the temperature in these parts
