Recently I was lucky enough to visit Machu Picchu and Cuzco, a small slice of beautiful Peru. It was (literally) breathtaking, mystical, and surprisingly tasty. Below is a short synopsis of my dining experiences and a few spectacular views. Hope you enjoy.
After arriving at Inkallpa Valle Sagrado Lodge & Spa I enjoyed a few light bites in their restaurant. They were divine.
Of course when in Peru, one must visit Machu Picchu.
After a long day in the mountains, I enjoyed a delicious French-Peruvian fusion lunch in Aguas Calientes at Indio Feliz.
Stopped by Deva Restaurant Tipico and kept the kitchen staff up late.
Which one of these was my dinner?
The chef invited us to the kitchen to watch the preparation of a traditional guinea pig meal.
The guinea pig in all its glory.
Sights around Cusco.
Enjoyed an amazing meal at Mutu Food & Drink in Cusco.
Experienced sensory overload of the most incredible kind while dining at Falling Angel
Urpi Pizzeria Restaurant where you will witness the wood for the traditional terracotta oven chopped by your tableside if you order their homemade pizza. I enjoyed delicious fresh cut french fries and one of the better breaded chicken dishes I have had in some time.
This is just a taste of what Peru has to offer. Go there and see for yourself. If you go to any of the restaurants I’ve recommended, tell them Bluejeanfoodcritic sent you!
