Fodor's Expert Review Tradición Arequipeña

$ Arequipa Peruvian

It may be a S/10–S/15 taxi ride to this restaurant in the Paucarpata district, but take your cue from the locals, who come in droves for the simple, straightforward Arequipeña food. The interior style is Peruvian country, but the flavors lean toward Creole. Get ready for cuy chactado (deep-fried guinea pig) and ocopa arequipeña (potato-based dish with garlic, olives, onion, and fresh cheese). Reservations are recommended.
