Apu VerónicaWander 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. The real highlights of this restaurant, which serves typical Peruvian cooked to perfection, are the meats prepared a la piedra, 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 nonprofit organization, are now doing the same for the highland communities that provide many of their dishes’ ingredients.
