Day 01- Backstreet Eats Cusco Food Tour

    TOUR PLAN: 5:30pm – Meet your Tour Guide outside the Starbucks entrance in the Plaza de Armas First Stop: Tamales - Made with corn, this is a typical Peruvian savoury snack. Here you will learn about the importance of the Corn in the Andean way of life.  Locals often get these to eat on their way to work. History of the first Inca Palace, Plaza Nazarenas, Calle Purgatorio, Ukupacha – learn about the snakes and what they represent spiritually in the underworld. You will stroll through San Blas –  a bohemian area famous for its quirky cafes, bars & restaurants. Second Stop: Ceviche – A traditional National dish for Peru. Contains fresh raw fish with lime juice (in Peru we call it ‘limon’), with chopped onion, and spiced with chili peppers, with a side of silantro for those who need extra. Learn about the different artistic expressions in the San Blas area. Woodwork, painting and the history of masks. Third Stop: Picarones and Chicha Morada - A must stop on this tour.  Picarones are a sweet Peruvian dessert dish. Originally from Lima made with pumpkin, sweet potato and flour – looks similar to a donut and served with a syrup over the top. This is served with Chicha Morada; a natural drink made of purple corn with pineapple, cinnamon and sugar.  Locals enjoy this refreshing mix as it contains antioxidants also found in wine and often paired with lunch. Fourth Stop: Three Monkeys Coffee - The best coffee in Cusco! A fine organic blend made by local farmers. This is where locals come to get their delicious fix during the day by friendly staff. With hot coffee in hand, you will learn the story of the Temple of the Sun, and about the most important Temple of the Inca times – Pachacutec. Fifth Stop: Anticucho – Popular Cusco Street food with an African influence.  This is where you can try cow heart on a skewer. It also comes with a cooked potato too if you like! Sixth Stop: Pisco Sour - making and tasting. Our last stop on the Cusco walking food tour where our local bar staff will show you how to make your own Pisco Sour and then of course the best part – the tasting! Sit back and enjoy with your new-found friends and chat about all the interesting things you've learnt and tried.

    I recently did the Backstreet Eats food tour in Cusco – this is a great food tour right in the heart of the town Centre. The friendly local guide takes you around some of the lesser known streets where you get try some delicious, traditional Peruvian food and drinks. Not only do you get to taste everything, however you are are also getting to meet and support the local people along the way. I got to try lots of new and interesting things whilst learning some history in a fun way. The night finishes with learning how to make pisco sour and then enjoying it with new-found friends. Would highly recommend!
