The northern regions have a warm climate and a generous sea in fish and seafood. Among their highlights are cebiches and sweat, which combine marine species with acids, spices and aromatic herbs that give fresh and intense flavors. There are fish cebiches, black shells or seafood, marinated in lemon juice, chili, salt and supplements of onion, sweet potato and corn or parboiled corn.
The chinguirito is a special type of cebiche, with dry meat salted fish guitar. For main course we have the sweat of fish or steamed fish. Fried yucca, parmesan conchitas and chifles (fried banana slices) are appetizers to share. All food in the north is accompanied by an ice cold beer or chicha de jora, well frozen. The kid’s breeding is usual in this area, so kid’s dry is one of their typical foods. Another dish is the dry chabelo, which is prepared with beef cooked on the embers, with grilled plantain grilled; and rice with duck, seasoned with black beer, is a classic.
The theologian soup, a broth prepared with a pava; and Shambhar, another soup with mints, pork and beef, are also symbols of Northern gastronomy. Like every region, it also has its desserts. Quince jellies and King Kong, a giant alfajor stuffed with pineapple jam and white delicacy, are popular. In addition to restaurants, the taste and quality are enjoyed in chicherias, where it is cooked with firewood and with clay pots, or in “huariques” known for their peculiar homemade flavor.
