A large part of Peru’s heritage and national identity is reflected in the country's diverse cuisine. So it’s no wonder that Ceviche, also spelled Cebiche, which is considered Peru’s national dish, has its very own national day on June 28.
On and around the National Ceviche day restaurants and hotels offer special menus and partly interesting and creative interpretations of the dish. There are food fairs and ceviche competitions, especially in Lima and even abroad to honor and celebrate one of Peru’s key dishes.
