Huancahuasi restaurant offers an intriguing mixture of traditional Andean food, such as the Piqueo Huancahuasi (guinea pig, fried pork and potatoes), and newer creations, such as the Coctel de trucha (âtrout cocktail,â like shrimp cocktail, but made with trout). It unabashedly caters to tourists, but locals do eat here as well. One of the restaurant's specialties is a traditional breakfast, served every day starting at 8 a.m. For lunch on Saturdays and Sundays, it offers a traditional pachamanka, which is a sort of feast prepared by filling a hole in the ground with burning charcoal before adding meat and vegetables and letting the whole mixture steam and cook for a while. On Fridays and Saturday nights, Huancahuasi hosts noches andinas (Andean nights) with traditional music. Monday and Wednesday-Friday 8 a.m.-7 p.m., Saturday-Sunday 8 a.m.-midnight. Closed Tuesdays.
