This three of four decades old restaurant used to be a very small restaurant but it was recently expanded and remodeled. It offers traditional dishes from Arequipa like sarzas (onion salads with lamb or pig feet, or even shellfish), cuy chactado (fried guinea pig), malaya frita, rocoto relleno (stuffed hot chili pepper) and soups like chaque de tripas (a thick soup with meat, tripe, potatoes, ají panca and vegetables). They also offer chicha de jora as a refreshment, but even though it is an Arequipenian restaurant, their chicha de jora is Northern style, i.e. it is made from yellow corn instead of purple corn (dried and ground germinated purple corn called guiñapo).
Price Range: Inexpensive
