You often ask us about good, local places to eat in Cusco where there are not many tourists. This article will list you my few favorite spots, off the beaten track!
Local restaurants in Cusco
If you feel like eating ceviche, then your place to go is restaurant TIGER MILK CUSCO
Address: Calle Cuba I-1-12B Entre Magisterio y Quispicanchis (Espada de Av Cultura, Edificio Credinka)
Historical capital of Peru is not the best spot for ceviche, but with the one exception. This restaurant is run by a person from Lima and he makes sure that all dishes reminds the ones served in Lima. Thanks to that you can have incredible ceviche also in Cusco.
Apart from the most popular dish, you can try there great fish coctail Leche de Tigre.
Delicious, unique and local with QAMAQ Restaurante
Address: Calle los Cipreces M-15 | Urb La Florida, Cuzco, Perú
This is another small restaurant which I visit quite often. Menu with various local dishes, a little more expensive, but much more delicious than the ones on the market. For 12 sols you can try soup and second. All of them served in very clean, interesting way.
For a coffee outside city center go to INTI COFFEE – Espresso & Bar
Address: Urb. Magisterio 1° Etapa Av. J. Gabriel Cosio H-1
Residencial part of Cusco is the most famous one among higher class. Each person dreams about appartment in this part of the city. Here you have also a lot of small restaurants, bars, many places where you can meet with friends, far away from tourist crowds.
In the city center, but with not many tourists – theme evening in LA ESENCIA
Address: Limacpampa Chico 400 Interior 2do piso, Cusco
For the end one place from city center. Even though it is located near the famous sun temple Koricancha, it is not popular among tourists. Local climate, incredible athmosphere, interesting theme evenings focused on art and music promotion. And what is important, drinks and sweets are cheap.😊
