Wander down from the Plaza de Armas toward the entrance to the striking hillside ruins of Ollantaytambo and you can’t miss Apu Verónica on the left-hand side of the street. Serving typical Peruvian, cooked to perfection, the restaurant’s real highlights include meats grilled a la piedra, served sizzling on stones. A second-floor dining room offers great views and is decorated with items representative of the local culture; occasional live traditional music is played. Perhaps the best part is that the owners, who were given a helping hand by a non-profit organization, are now doing the same for the highland communities that provide many of their dishes’ ingredients.
