Puno Restaurants

follow us

Puno has an overabundance of chicken joints, chifas and pizzerias. Tourist-oriented restaurants—complete with English-only menus and high prices—are on Jirón Lima. To browse for cheaper diners, go two blocks east, to Jirón Moquegua, where meals can be had for less than half the price and three-course menú del día are served at lunch and dinner. To pick up groceries, hit the Mercado Central (Jr Oquendo and Jr Tacna) or the Plaza Vea supermarket a block away (Av Los Incas, just past the railroad tracks). On Saturday, the full length of Avenida San Martín is a massive outdoors market.

Local dishes to try are chuño (a freeze-dried potato), chalona (dried mutton) and chairo (a soup made of beef or lamb, potatoes, beans, squash, cabbage and chuño). The local fish are also excellent, particularly trucha (trout), pejerrey and ishpi. People of the region often eat potatoes with cha’co, a fine clay stone dissolved in water.
