Insumo, the Rooftop for a High-End Gastronomy

Speaking of Lima is referring to one of the great gastronomic destinations in the world. With restaurants in the best international culinary rankings, the flavors of Lima never cease to amaze. But if a restaurant has managed to combine gastronomy with a sensory experience on another level, it is undoubtedly Insumo, the rooftop of the AC Hotel Lima Miraflores that overlooks the city and the Pacific Ocean.

Privileged View
The AC Hotel Lima Miraflores has one of the best locations in Lima, right on the Malecón de la Reserva (the boardwalk of Miraflores), in one of the most dynamic and lively neighborhoods in the city. Miraflores is at the center of the important Peruvian gastronomic scene: many of the restaurants that occupy high positions in the world's culinary rankings are located in this neighborhood; others are conveniently located within walking distance, in the adjoining districts of San Isidro and Barranco.
With the gastronomic tourism boom in Peru, it is not necessary to go far to enjoy a unique experience in Lima. You just need to go up the eighteen floors of the AC Hotel Lima Miraflores to find Insumo, the highest restaurant in Lima and one of the best rooftops to discover the city.
Insumo stands on the coast of Lima. The characteristic breeze of this city is part of its atmosphere. Privileged views that reveal a contemporary and varied city accompany an elevated culinary experience. The sunsets and night lights of Lima increase the enjoyment.

Signature Cuisine
The Chef Víctor Álvarez del Villar, head of Insumo, has a notable culinary career specializing in hotel management. He was executive chef at Tambo del Inka, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, and has represented Peru in Madrid and Panama, among other milestones. Since January 2021, he is the executive chef of Aloft Lima Miraflores and AC Lima Miraflores, leading both hotels with two fabulous kitchen brigades.
Insumo lives up to its name, since the menu is based on the careful choice and quality of its ingredients: freshness in the marine elements, diversity in the side dishes and traceability in the vegetables from the organic garden. The variety on the menu is completed with the Josper and Kamado oven techniques.
This signature cuisine at AC Hotel Lima Miraflores recognizes the Mediterranean lessons, but above all, looks to the Peruvian Pacific Ocean; appreciates the flavor of other traditions, while incorporating products from the Peruvian coast, Andes and Amazon. Without a doubt, this is a must stop for a gastronomic tourist or for any gourmet who wants to discover the city through its flavors.


What Should not be Missed
If Lima is its sea, it could be said that Insumo is its Cebiche carretillero: catch of the day, glazed sweet potato, chulpi corn, boiled corn and deep-fried calamari. Nor can you fail to try the jumbo shell tiradito and the stuffed causa with shrimp and calamari to remember the richness of the Peruvian sea.
With other tones, temperatures and flavors, the quinoa salad with salmon ham is highly recommended, as is the rump tail or the Josper beef burger. The pizza station has surprises, such as the Iberian pizza and the Parmesan shell pizza. You have to try them.
If a couple of desserts should be mentioned, these could be the Kamado apple brittle, with toffee sauce, Maras salt and aguaymanto; or the chocolate amelcochado, with lavender cream and crunchy nuts.
Insumo completes its gastronomic proposal with signature cocktails. Drinks like the Lavender sour, the Punch18 (with pisco and purple corn, both national emblems), or the poetic El horizonte, with its citrus tones, are the perfect complement for an experience very close to the Lima sky.
