By Anna Virkama de CabrejosIf you are applying for a residence permit, nationality, work visa or just getting an extention to your tourist visa, you are most likely familiar with the national office of migrations, Migraciones in Avenida Espana 734. Even if you are not, it might be interesting to pass by this office. Why? Because the steady economic growth of Peru in the past year has brought an influx of migrants from other Latin American countries, especially from the less stable ones. And where you’ll find other cultures, you’ll find their favorite national foods!
In front of the Migraciones in Lima you can find vendors selling snacks from their countries of origin. The offer varies: on some days you may find Ecuadorian patacones, fried plantain slices, and on some other day Colombian tamales, corn dough filling in a plantain leaf wrap.
