authentic peruvian experience

We went to Chomba based on our guide's recommendation, and the food didn't disappoint. It's not necessarily an easy place for tourists to navigate (i.e., no English anywhere), but it's a cool place to take a culinary risk in Cusco.

This restaurant was recommended by our guide from the Free Walking Tour to try Cuy. My friends were eager to try it and they were very dissapointed, it was chewy and nothing like people described it was suppose to be. I had pasta with chicken and even such simple dish was terrible. Service very slow. By far our worst meal... More

We saw a recommendation for this place on the internet, and we decided to check it out on a Sunday afternoon. The place was packed, and we were the only tourists in there. The food was all very good. We had the cuy, chicharon, and chicken soup. It was all really good. The beer was also cheap. I would recommend... More

We wanted to try the infamous guinea pig or 'cuy' and stumbled on this little gem of a restaurant. The restaurant is a bit hard to find and off the beaten track but well worth it...the waiters were friendly, food was good, big portions and great price! There were more locals than tourists here and it is better to come... More

Rustic setting, cheap, big portions, yummy local food! They even offered us to taste frutillada on our way out, we would have definitely go back if we've had time! Don't try to find the english menu, you won't.. but don't worry, the waiters are very helpful and will nicely help you to make your choice!

Like so many Peru tourists we also wanted to try the famous "cuy" (guinea pig). As the other places we found on tripadvisor seemed a bit expensive for us (one plate for around 60 Soles), we decided to try this restaurant and were not disappointed! La Chomba is a bit hidden away in a backyard, so make sure that you... More

Really liked the place - a lot of locals and the owners are so friendly. A bit difficult to find - from the street through a door to the backyard. But worth it!! The food are local dishes and really good - best Cuy in town. And cheap!!
