OJ at prices you can't resist - Huaraz

OJ at prices you can't resist

Common street stall: Two for one OJ's

You can find these women serving up fresh squeezed orange juice on every street corner in Huaraz. You can stil on small stools and watch as they cut the oranges in half and pump the juice from the fruit with one swift arm motion.

Favorite Dish: The juice is fantastic and cheap too. We were astonished the first time when we were told it was about 30 cents for a glass, and when we got a refill, we assumed it would be 60. We were even more amazed that the second glass was free!

Comparison: least expensive

Directions: You can't miss them, they are everywhere

a respite from Peru awaits you - Huaraz

a respite from Peru awaits you

Bistro de los Andes: European atmosphere

Nice ambience with English menu and speaking staff.

Favorite Dish: I must say I had the best Lomo Saltado of the trip here. This is a classic Peruvian meal of strips of beef sauted with onions and garnished heavily with cilantro and tomotoes. This version had the best beef I had in all of Peru and though pricey, it was tasty. My only gripe was the portion was not too big and this local specialty is generally served in enormous quanities.

Address: Morales 823

Comparison: more expensive than average

Price: less than US$10

a welcomed site after a trek - Huaraz

a welcomed site after a trek

Monte Rosa: dat's a nice pizza pie

Though I don't routinely eat Italian out as I am of Italian descent, this was a great little place to reward yourself after a long trek. The pizza was among the best I have had in South America and it was a place for a romantic dinner.

Favorite Dish: A medium pizza with ham and chorizo, enough to fill one person well was about $7, but worth the splurge.

Address: Jr. Jose de La Mar 661

Comparison: more expensive than average

Directions: Just off the main shopping area, Avenida Luzuriaga.

Phone: 721-447

chicken anyone? - Huaraz

chicken anyone?

Medileny Chicken: bet you can't eat just one....

Roast chicken is ubiquitous in Peru and is uniformly excellent but this fast food operation serves up some of the tastiest and biggest portions of the succulent bird.

Favorite Dish: We had a "family platter," which even though only one chicken was, in fact, enough to feed a whole family!

Comparison: least expensive

Directions: Can't remember location, but Huaraz is a small town and it is worth keeping an eye out for as it is in the city center.

Price: less than US$10

a true local's place - Huaraz

a true local's place

Carillon Chico: true local fare, true local place

It doesn't look like much from the front and even the interior lacks much atmosphere with its neon lights buzzing ahead. But make no mistake, this a classic Peruvian eatery. The dishes are tasty and cheap, and ooze local flavor and the owner chef is friendly as he tries to help you through the Spanish only menu.

Favorite Dish: I never knew what I was eating but it was all good!

Address: Av. Gamarra

Comparison: least expensive

Directions: Just walk along Av. Gamarra and keep your eyes peeled, it's probably between Morales and Raymondi.

Price: less than US$10

classic Peruvian dish, cerviche - Huaraz

classic Peruvian dish, cerviche

Cericheria El Ancala: raw yes, but delicous

Great locals restaurant with good cheap beer and a bustling atmosphere around lunch time. Waiters keep the food and beer coming and it is all to easy to spend an entire afternoon there!

Favorite Dish: Cerviche is the national dish of Peru. It consists of raw fish or shell fish that is marinated in lime juice which more or less "cooks" it with it's natural acid. It is garnished heavily with cilantro and absolutely out of this world. Before the meal, you get a bowl of cancha, which is a roasted corn that goes perfectly with the Crystal beer on offer.

Comparison: less expensive than average

Directions: Just up from the Plaza de Armas on M Caceres. There are two on opposite corners and sure both are good, but loved this place for atmosphere.

Price: less than US$10
