CUSCO - PERU

TYPICAL FOOD AND RESTAURANTS

No need to worry about eating out in Cusco, as the city offers a variety of menus to suit all tastes, excellent service and very fine cuisine. Why ask for more? The majority of restaurants are close to the Main Square ("Plaza de Armas"), offering different levels of service quality and menu variety, depending on your budget or the price you're prepared to pay.

However, if you want to try typical Cuscan food, we recommend you make a round of the Cusqueñan "picanterías" and "chicherías", to try some native dishes. If around in November or December you could try Quso Kapiche, a stew of boiled lima beans and potatoes, seasoned with onion, garlic, lard, milk and red pepper.

On Carnival Tuesday, in February, a traditional soup prepared with beef, lamb, bacon, pork, cabbage leaves, potatoes, chick peas and rice is served.

You should also try rabbit or guinea pig "pepián". "Chicha de jora"; an Andean beverage made from fermented corn, is also worth a try.
