Eating the best 'butifarra' in Bar Cordano.
One of the oldest bars in the country, Cordano is a Lima institution. Because it’s located at the corner of the Government’s Palace, all past Presidents have been customers, but also artists, writers and other politicians. Having opened its doors over 100 years ago, the place is charming with its original decor: floor, tiles, the cabinets and counter made of dark wood and the older waiting staff. Walking into Cordano makes you want to go back in time. Ask for a Butifarra - "uno Del país, porfa" they say here. The Butifarra is a sandwich on a french baguette filled with slices of jamon del pais (pork) and the salsa criolla (onion, lime and pepper). It's the best butifarra in Lima for sure.
