The Southern Andes and Lake Titicaca Restaurants

You can find everything from cuy (guinea pig) to wood-fired pizza at the many excellent restaurants in Arequipa and Puno, where cuisine ranges from sophisticated Novo Andino cuisine to traditional fare and international grub. Food in Arequipa is known for strong, fresh flavors, from herbs and spices to vegetables served with native Andean foods like alpaca steaks. In the mountains the cool,

Puno also has a special affection for adobe-oven, wood-fired pizza.
