Vegan restaurants in Cusco: the guide to the must-see places in the Inca city

There are many vegan options in Cusco. There is something for all tastes and for all budgets. You can find it in a stall in the San Blas Market as well as in a place awarded by Tripadvisor. In this note we show you all the places you can visit in the most touristic city in Peru.

Whether you are vegan or not, these restaurants and huariques are a great option. Their food is not heavy, it is easy to digest and when you are at 3,399 meters above sea level, digestion can be very slow and sometimes play a trick on you. Therefore, eating more vegetables and nutritious is a good alternative.

Without further ado, we started the route.

Fabricio Durand and Cat Atherton’s restaurant is only half a block from Plaza de San Blas. Their food is very varied and has options for everyone. It has a menu that includes Peruvian as well as international dishes. In addition, it has the menu of the day in which they offer you a starter, a background, a drink and a dessert. All for 30 soles.

“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.

The food is delicious, the attention is wonderful and it complements well with the comfortable and warm atmosphere. “Good service is one of our pillars.

Vegan stop

Vianca Condoy began dabbling in the kitchen shortly after going vegan. “In activism I liked to bring desserts to share and my friends encouraged me to sell them and recommended me to more people. It was when I met Victor that he encouraged me to share our content in a blog that he created for me (paradavegana.art.blog) opportunities such as participating in fairs were given. After a year we rented a space in the center of Cusco in the middle of the pandemic where we are currently. Our main goal was always to share our food and our love of veganism.”, relates Vianca.

The dishes that they usually sell with good reception from the public are: Baked Seifú, Burger Seifú, Pad Thai, Vietnamese Rolls, Falafel Bowl, Buddha Bowl, and the tres leches cake.

Vegan Life Bistro

This Cusco restaurant was born in December 2016 from the mind of Erick MT. “At the beginning of this journey, it was no more than a small place with only three tables located in the town of San Blas, but through effort, commitment, and the quality of its dishes, it progresses to become one of the vegan restaurants insignia of Cusco”Eric adds.

Erick and his team of professionals work to provide the best vegan dishes. Their good performance has led them to be four times among the best restaurants in Cusco according to TripAdvisor and Happy Cow.

For the Vida Vegan Bistro team it is very important to show that beyond being a culinary alternative, they want to introduce a “ philosophy of life based on respect for the life of all living beings, thus eliminating exploitation and cruelty towards animals for food or other purposes”.
