Picanteria in Arequipa

Arequipa is well-known for its delicious cuisine, which is traditionally served in restaurants called picanterías. La Nueva Palomino is a local favorite. Try the rocoto relleno: spicy Andean peppers stuffed with minced beef and vegetables. Order appetizer plates with fried paria (Andean salty cheese) to share as the food comes. Chupe de camarones is another classic Arequipan dish: a robust seafood soup made from tomato, shrimp (and other crustaceans), hot pepper, cheese, potatoes, milk, and eggs.
