A must for anyone in Cusco! Menu Del Día costs just 7 soles and changes on a daily basis. Must sure to also try the chocolate cake for an extra 4 soles, incredible!

This is an all vegetarian place with one fixed menu for lunch every day. It is vegetarian but is exactly like the other classic Mercardo food stalls and counters. So it feels like a Peruvian eatery. The owner is very friendly and vegan herself. It...More

One of my favorite stops in Cusco! An unexpected find in the the San Blas market tucked away in the corner, for only 7 soles as of this review, you get hot soup, main entree and tea. Service is super quick and food completely delicious....More
