Veganism has more and more allies every day and it is less and less difficult to find places to eat when you travel as a vegan. In Peru, and especially in big cities like Cusco, vegan restaurants are making their way with great success.
If you are thinking of traveling to the Imperial City of Cusco, here is a list of vegan restaurants that you cannot miss. And if you’re not vegan, it doesn’t matter, you’ll still love them!
We start with one of the classics of vegan and gluten-free food in Cusco. Green Point offers a wide range of dishes from different cuisines around the world: pad thai, lasagna, sushi and of course, delicious quinoa burgers, the star cereal of the Andes.
And if you still want to learn some of these recipes, Green Point has the solution: sign up for cooking classes organized by the restaurant itself.
Vida Vegan Bistro
Who says that Peruvian dishes cannot be adapted to veganism? Mushroom chili, sautéed vegetable meat, quinoa risotto. At Vida Vegan Bistro you will find the typical dishes of Peruvian gastronomy suitable for vegan palates.
Although it is not an exclusively vegan place, Greens Organic is perfect for those who are looking for a place to have breakfast, lunch or dinner dishes that are made with organic food (in this case, grown in their own garden).
Imagine a lentil burger, a stuffed avocado, a mushroom and asparagus quinotto, a vegetable wrap, all made with organic products. Sounds good, right?
Shaman Vegan Raw
In this restaurant, totally dedicated to Pachamama, the dishes are prepared with respect for Mother Earth and the atmosphere exudes peace and tranquility.
In addition to vegan dishes such as pumpkin cream, stuffed potato or vegetable tortilla with quinoa, this place specializes in raw food such as Power salads with raw vegetables, seeds and nuts.
And what is a good meal if it does not have a good dessert? After enjoying a delicious lunch, we recommend you go to La Rabona, a small place specializing in vegan desserts.
Here you will find from the typical cakes to fruit desserts accompanied with coconut yogurt, vegan cookies, etc. Desserts that we recommend you accompany with their delicious smoothies and vegan juices, such as the chocolate from the Amazon.
