How to Eat for Free (and Safely) in Peru

On weekends I like to visit the Metro and stock up on things like snacks and tea. I grab a cheap lunch there as well since they have many little booths of food. Today I went to the good ol’ Chinese food booth. For 4 soles (around $1.25), I had a chicken wing, a pork dumpling, another kind of pork dumpling, two fried wontons, and a pork bun. Oh, and a dixie cup of Inka Cola. I was still wanting more though so I went around the supermarket. They have many people giving out free samples during peak hours. After a few circuits around, I had eaten samples of ham, sausage, tamales, cheese, ramen in soup, and rice pudding. Now that’s a lunch!
