Before discovering the Cusquenita, I used to take all my foreign guests to the Chomba for the authentic Peruvian dining experience. It´s setting in a back ally, the un-even floors and rustic setting are perfect in my opinion. However, not all of my guests agreed, it was a little too rustic for some; too noisy, too crowded and chaotic and too many locals drinking too many cervezas. So it really depends on your sense of adventure and tolerance for the off-path. High-brows from California might prefer the Cusquenita or the upscales in the Plaza de Armas. For me it was a great experience. However, while all their meat dishes are wonderful, their cuy preparation is a bit too greasy, with a distinct flavor that doesn’t work for me. I prefer Cuy from the coast.
