This dream began almost 10 years ago, when Fabricio Durán, a chef by profession, returned from his trip to South Africa, where he was working as a cook. In that country, he became a vegan and he did not see it as congruent with his principles to continue cooking products of animal origin. When he returned to his hometown, he decided to open his own restaurant, but this time totally vegan, not including anything of animal origin.

It started in a smaller place than the one they currently have. Her parents had a space and they gave it to her. He put all his creativity and experience into gear, while mixing with the new techniques of plant-based cooking. A year later, he joined the project, Cat Atherton, an English tourist who fell in love with the vegan food of Green Point and Fabrizio. Currently, both run the restaurant awarded by Tripadvisor as Best Hidden Gem.

In May 2023, Green Point will be 10 years old. And as they explain, the reception of vegan food in Cusco has been getting better and better. “Most of the customers are tourists. At the beginning, when Fabricio started the project, they asked him if he wasn’t going to add some chicken or something. He said no. He never had any doubts, ”says Atherton.
