Tradición Arequipeña Review
It may be a S/10 taxi ride to this restaurant in the Paucarpata district, but locals come in droves for the fantastic Arequipan food. The decor is Peruvian country, but the flavors lean toward Creole. Get ready for cuy chactado (deep-fried guina pig) and ocopa arequipeña (potato-based dish with garlic, olives, onion, and fresh cheese). If you crave seafood, try the chupe de camarones (a creamy shrimp chowder). Open from noon to 7, it's primarily a lunch-only venue Sunday through Thursday, but on Friday and Saturday it doesn't close until 10 (sometimes later) when live music can be heard, including an orchestra on Saturday nights. Reservations recommended.
