Meats cooked on volcanic stones at Zig Zag
Zig Zag, a restaurant located in the city center of Arequipa, constitutes a harmony between nature and signature cuisine. The owners are both Peruvian and Swiss, and they've dubbed their cuisine "Alpandine": a combination between the Alps and the Andes. Their specials are driven by delicious local meats (including alpaca) and fish (salmon, andean trout) cooked on black volcanic stone. They meat comes to your table still cooking on the stone, accompanied with signature sauces, Alpine röstis, and pastas made from both wheat and quinoa. The cozy and classic atmosphere is reminiscent of the Belle Epoque with old French posters and a circular iron staircase designed by Gustav Eiffel.
