Peruvian & South American Food
Springfield offers many choices when it comes to Peruvian cuisine. There are food trucks in various parking lots, neighborhoods, breweries, and food truck parks offering different meals that provide an opportunity to try new dishes – as well as appearing at events and festivals across town.
Peru’s cuisine is heavily influenced by three geographical areas, from its coast (with seafood as its staple food) and Andean highlands (meat, potatoes, corn, and noodles) to jungle foods like fruits, plants, and yuccas. Furthermore, other national cuisines such as Arabic, Spanish, Mexican, Argentinean, and Chinese cuisine also contribute their influences – giving this cuisine its unique flair!
Ceviche is one of Peru’s most beloved dishes, consisting of raw fish marinated in citrus juice (usually lime or naranja agria – bitter orange) with additional spice from aji peppers and onions. On June 28th, it is celebrated as National Ceviche Day.
Lomo Salgado, a hearty meat stew served with fried corn or potatoes and often featured at restaurants, is another popular dish served alongside rice, beans, or salad. Also popular are tequenos, fried wonton wraps filled with cheese, and other ingredients for a fantastic bite-sized snack!
After studying epidemiology in Saudi Arabia, Alharbi moved to Missouri to further his career as a paramedic.

3rabiana offers an eclectic fusion of Middle Eastern and European flavors in its menu, including sandwiches, salads, and desserts that are favorites among customers. Their popular items are hummus and falafel, with vegetarian-friendly options available. You can find their truck in the parking lot of Old Time Pottery on East Battlefield.
