Help us plan our meals in Arequipa & Cusco

lacontessa | Jun 9, 201505:17 AM

We will be spending 3 nights in Arequipa and 2 nights in Cusco Peru in early August. Any suggestions for where to eat? I do speak Spanish and we would like to try a local picanteria, chocolate shop etc. Hubbie wants to eat cuy again.

The restaurants Zig Zag and Chi Cha were recommended by our small hotel but one poster in 2013 on this forum said Zig Zag was fun but the food wasn't memorable. Another poster on Tripadvisor suggested to avoid the chain that Gaston Acurio now represents (my husband loved his cuy at the original Astrid y Gaston many years ago), plus Chi Cha is also in Cusco. Has anyone been to these two cities more recently than 2013? Any suggestions?
