Peru’s Maido named best restaurant in Latin America for 3rd year in a row

Lima-based Maido —Japanese-Peruvian fusion restaurant— has taken the top spot in the Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list for the third year running.

Central, also from Peru, was ranked the second best restaurant in Latin America. The third place went to Mexico’s Pujol.

The Inca nation’s cuisine dominated the list with 11 restaurants. Other Peruvian eateries include Oso (9th), Astrid y Gaston (13th), Isolina (12th), Rafael (19th), Kjolle (21st), La Mar (26th), Mil (36th), Mayta (49th), and Malabar (48th).

The prestigious ranking also features eateries from Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Panama, Ecuador, and Uruguay.

Moreover, Peruvian Pedro Miguel Schiaffino was awarded the American Express Icon Award 2019. Part chef, part humanitarian, part conservationist and part anthropological researcher, Schiaffino has devoted a lifetime to maintaining and promoting the historic ecosystems of the Amazon.

Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants

Sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, the list is the result of a poll of 252 experts (all within Latin America), who each cast 10 votes for the restaurants where they have had their best experiences during the last 18 months before the voting deadline.

The voters are well-travelled gourmets, food writers and critics, chefs and restaurateurs who dine out regularly and travel within Latin America.

The results and the awards are organized and staged by William Reed Business Media. S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna are the main sponsors.

Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants events seek to encourage a shared fraternity across restaurants in the continent, bringing together the best chefs in Latin America, drawing attention to the regional culinary development and celebrating gastronomy together.
