There are several nice lunch spots in Sicuani, 138 kilometers south of Cusco.
At the Casa Hacienda Las Tunas (J.C. Tello 100, tel. 084/35-2480, US$4), Sofia Vásquez serves up a huge, scrumptious buffet of Peruvian food from 11:30 a.m. onwards, when the Inka Express bus pulls in.
Her sister, Edith, has good trout and meat dishes at the Cebichería Acuarios (Garcilazo de la Vega 141, 2nd Fl., tel. 084/80-9531, US$3) on the plaza.
