Great Sunday outdoor food
Jul 2017 • Couples
Every Sunday, the street turns into a food market with a big variety of local foods. So we stopped for lunch at one of the many tables and shared a portion of Pachamanca by 2 persons. You can also find grilled meat and other delicious Peruvian dishes.
Really good were the desserts like milk rice, a sort of strawberry mousse, and the mokka cake sold by a woman with a mobile booth. I really recommend going on a Sunday and enjoy the food and cozy atmosphere.

Weekend Food Bonanza
Aug 2016 • Family
If you are into eating traditional Andean food, this is the spot for you. This street is lined with restaurants and food vendors every weekend where you can get cuy (roasted guinea pig), pachamanca (three meats in an earth oven), yunca cashqui (barley soup with lamb), and much more, all served with endless chicha de jora (corn beer). No hurry here, it is an all afternoon event (not for the weak stomach, its a local thing).

So interesting
May 2015 • Friends
Lots of construction adding to a boom atmosphere in Huaraz. I had no idea that the neighborhood had survived the 1970 earthquake. But the buildings all looked more recent. Old giving way to progress I guess. Every Sunday there's a neighborhood fiesta. Tents, tables and chairs for serving meals. Cerveza, music, even once there was a stage set up for live bands. I got the sense that people in the neighborhood had pride in it. It felt safe. People smiled, said hello. Only bad thing, the streets are narrow and too many cars. Oh, and dogs bark at night. But that didn't take away from the feeling that it's a neighborhood on the go!

A great street to walk down for a taste of "Old Huaraz"
Dec 2014 • Family
An alley rich with history and how Huaraz looked before the earthquake. It is definitely worth the walk to see all of the white houses with green doors!!

Local food in a picturesque location
Jul 2014 • Friends
Jose Olaya street still has remaining original architecture that survived the 70s earthquake, and on Sundays you can try all sorts of typical foods (pachamanca, cuy, etc) in the outside seating. A must if you truly appreciate local cuisine in this interesting and original setting.

Local food fair every Sunday!
Jul 2013 • Friends
Jirón José Olaya is one of the few streets that survived the earthquake in 1970, so the architecture of the houses and the width of the street are like those in the past. Every Sunday huaracinos visit the different restaurants that set up their tables and chairs on the street for them. If you want to see what huaracinos do that day and try local food (guinea pig, llunka soup, pachamanca, etc.), you should go. During weekdays you can also go to the traditional bakeries in the afternoon and get some nice & warm 'pan de piso' after making a queue with the neighbors. If you see a small red flag hanging outside a house, that means they sell 'chicha' (corn beer) inside. No vehicles are allowed in the street.
