A Quick Guide to Cusco’s Street Food!

Cusco’s Street Food! How do you feel about giving it a try? So many people warned you not to, but living in Cusco as a Spanish student, we think you should go for it! It´s a very cheap and quick way to sample local fare, with no commitment to a full plate! Lots of people are wary of eating food prepared by a street vendor, but believe me, it’s the norm here in Cusco, and in most cases perfectly safe. Trust your gut…if it looks bad…don’t try it! And trust the crowd…if the people are gathered around waiting to eat it, it’s probably got a good reputation and there´s a reason for that! If it’s deserted, there’s likely a reason for that too, and I’m not interested in finding out what it is!

Following is a list of some popular street bites in Cusco…by no means is this list complete…explore the local fare and let us know what you enjoyed most! Buen provecho!
