Arequipa ranks just behind Lima for gastronomic adventures, and at very reasonable prices. Arequipeño cooking is famous throughout Peru, and several restaurants specialize in traditional regional specialties, a couple of them with fabulous outdoor seating and excellent views of the volcanoes. Several restaurants in the historic quarter -- the two streets leading north from the Plaza de Armas, Santa Catalina, and San Francisco are the main hub of nighttime activity -- specialize in traditional Arequipeño cooking, though two of the best are a short taxi ride beyond downtown.
