Peruvian cook Grimanesa Vargas has been included in Time’s ranking of 24 of ‘the world’s best kept-secrets’.
“For nearly 40 years, the legendary Doña Grimanesa Vargas has cooked her anticuchos—the Peruvian take on kebabs—to perfection. Most of that time was spent on the same street corner in Lima’s Miraflores district, but as her fame grew, so did the queues,” the magazine wrote.
, which features little-known spots and hideaways from around the globe, includes restaurants from France, Israel, Vietnam, and Australia, among others.
Grimanesa’s anticuchos, Time says, eventually drew in so many people, that she opened up her own restaurant in 2011.
“The meat is tender, the marinade is delicious and it’s well worth the wait for a seat,” the magazine added.
