Guide to Restaurants in Cusco

Guide to Restaurants in Cusco, Cusco, Peru (B)

With a stunning abundance of restaurants and cafes, Cusco is a fantastic place for foodie travelers. Prices are so reasonable, even at higher-end establishments, and there’s a vast variety of cuisines to enjoy in addition to Peruvian classics. Even though South America is known for heavy meat consumption, there are plenty of DELICIOUS vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Cusco to enjoy too.

First things first, start local. This market is open every day until 5pm and is the perfect spot to visit for lunch. For 5 Peruvian soles (about $1.80 USD) you can get a soup, main entree, and a drink from one of the vendor stalls in the market. They all have a “menu del día” or menu of the day scribbled on little whiteboards showing the options. There are also some vegan and specialized stalls in the market too. I absolutely love Peruvian dishes “Seco de Pollo” a chicken stew with a cilantro sauce, and Aji de Gallina, a creamy chicken sauce with rice. Try a bunch of different things – at such cheap prices, it’s a fantastic dining option. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
