Chowhounds looking for a divey restaurant with good food that only locals seem to know about will be more than satisfied with this rustic picantería a 10-minute walk from the Plaza de Armas. The clunky wood tables are worn from decades of use and Christmas decorations stay up all year round, making this as authentic an experience as they come. The food is cheap and hearty. Specialties include chicharron (fried pork), malaya frita (fried, extra-fatty steak), and cuy (guinea pig). Order a giant glass of frutillada, a type of chicha de jora (low-alcohol, fermented-maize beer), which La Chomba flavors with strawberries. The portions are absolutely huge and most will feed two.
