Peru, Cusco Guide (B): Dining Local in Cusco
So far I have not done many posts on dining, and the few I have done have mainly been general in nature so I was thinking that it is probably about time to offer some blogs with more specific dining options. We often times we take guests to some of our favorite dining locations when in Cusco, both local and touristic, so this will be the first of two blogs that will concentrate on dining in Cusco, this first one will be on local dining options and and will offer specific places to go to, for trying some of our favorite meals.
There are a wide variety of options for dining here in the Cusco Region, you can choose from gourmet, fusion, local and even several chain restaurants like Mc Donalds. With a few exceptions we generally prefer to dine at local establishments, as this is where you get a true feel for local life and these places tend to offer some of the best values as well.
When dining local here in Peru there is one thing that should be considered, and something that often times stops tourists from trying these truly authentic eateries, that is how the food is prepared and handled, choosing the wrong location could easily result in the loss of a few days vacation due to stomach issues. To help out my readers I have assembled this list of local dining options, these are some of our favorite local places for a variety of typical Peruvian cuisines, and we not only visit them often, but we also have taken many of our guests to them and to this date, no one has gotten sick, so check them out if you are interested in sampling some local dining while visiting Cusco. ......
