La Nueva Palomino

Arequipa, Peru

The epitome of a family run picantería (a lunchtime restaurant in Peru), La Nueva Palomino serves hearty dishes originating from Arequipa. The lunch menu includes a daily budget special. Abundant starters at this spacious canteen favoured by local diners include stuffed rocoto chilli peppers and prawn chowder. And if you want to sample the historic Andean delicacy of cuy (guinea pig, usually fried or roasted and served whole, teeth, paws and all), this is the place. Wash it all down with a chicha de jora (a type of beer made with maize that was originally brewed by chewing corn before spitting it out to ferment) or the non-alcoholic chicha morada beloved by all of Peru.
