Montrekk Pizzeria: Pizza & more while you rock climb while you wait
Excellent desserts ( I had a mango pastrie ) that was out of this world.
I am not a pizza lover so it was just another pizza but the ambience was great
while you wait for your food you can climb the big wall with the various levels or organize your trekking trip. your ice adventure or any activity surrounding Huaraz including mountain biking, rafting, etc. you can also rent your equipment there.
Great music, (but sorry almost no salsa) good company and excellent travel info desk is also in the same floor.
this description I think summarizes all ...
A spacious, very popular place with trekkers and a great meeting place with a useful noticeboard for contacting like-minded backpackers. Has a climbing wall, maps and aerial photos of the region.
Favorite Dish: mango pastrie (pastel de mango)
it is inexpensive (all the food in Huaraz is inexpensive) so indulge yourself for less than 7 usd
Serves delicious food and plays good music.

El Encuentro Restaurant - grill&coffee: Delicious food
We went there after we ate in the other one of them in the afternoon. We had a dish for two people where they had all kind of meat on and things of all kinds coming with it.
It was a great dinner and we ate until we couldn´t eat nooooo more.
Andean restaurants in general
Guinea pig is a local favorite - cuy in Spanish in case you're not sure what it is on the menu. Be careful if you don't like to meet what you eat, because where Luis ordered this, it came with the head still attached. You can order a quarter, half, or the whole animal. Not for me (they're pets in the States), but apparently it's tasty.
This picture was taken from the porch of the restaurant where we ate. There were two deer in the grassy area, and this one was taking a break under the shelter.
There were street vendors all over the city selling sandwiches for just a few soles (around one US dollar). They had everything from cheese sandwiches to sex burgers! The sex burgers were very creatively named, as they were made with sausage and egg. Enjoy!
Ice cream in Carhuaz
Carhuaz is known for its ice cream, so we made a stop here to try some for ourselves. The ice cream was indeed delicious, but a little too early in the morning to thoroughly enjoy it. The most distinctive feature of this region's ice creams is the flavor selection: you can or rum or beer flavored ice cream. I opted for the rum.
La Cabana del Abuela: Huge food !! Super bouffe !!!
A very nice place with smooth prices and very large meals !
Un endroit sympa avec des prix doux et des plats copieux !
Favorite Dish: Order the "oferta del dia" : you won't regret it (nor the price)
Demandeez l'oferta del dia : vous ne le regretterez pas, votre porte-monnaie non plus !!
Common street stall: Two for one OJ's
You can find these women serving up fresh squeezed orange juice on every street corner in Huaraz. You can stil on small stools and watch as they cut the oranges in half and pump the juice from the fruit with one swift arm motion.
Favorite Dish: The juice is fantastic and cheap too. We were astonished the first time when we were told it was about 30 cents for a glass, and when we got a refill, we assumed it would be 60. We were even more amazed that the second glass was free!
Bistro de los Andes: European atmosphere
Nice ambience with English menu and speaking staff.
Favorite Dish: I must say I had the best Lomo Saltado of the trip here. This is a classic Peruvian meal of strips of beef sauted with onions and garnished heavily with cilantro and tomotoes. This version had the best beef I had in all of Peru and though pricey, it was tasty. My only gripe was the portion was not too big and this local specialty is generally served in enormous quanities.
Monte Rosa: dat's a nice pizza pie
Though I don't routinely eat Italian out as I am of Italian descent, this was a great little place to reward yourself after a long trek. The pizza was among the best I have had in South America and it was a place for a romantic dinner.
Favorite Dish: A medium pizza with ham and chorizo, enough to fill one person well was about $7, but worth the splurge.
Medileny Chicken: bet you can't eat just one....
Roast chicken is ubiquitous in Peru and is uniformly excellent but this fast food operation serves up some of the tastiest and biggest portions of the succulent bird.
Favorite Dish: We had a "family platter," which even though only one chicken was, in fact, enough to feed a whole family!
Carillon Chico: true local fare, true local place
It doesn't look like much from the front and even the interior lacks much atmosphere with its neon lights buzzing ahead. But make no mistake, this a classic Peruvian eatery. The dishes are tasty and cheap, and ooze local flavor and the owner chef is friendly as he tries to help you through the Spanish only menu.
Favorite Dish: I never knew what I was eating but it was all good!
Cericheria El Ancala: raw yes, but delicous
Great locals restaurant with good cheap beer and a bustling atmosphere around lunch time. Waiters keep the food and beer coming and it is all to easy to spend an entire afternoon there!
Favorite Dish: Cerviche is the national dish of Peru. It consists of raw fish or shell fish that is marinated in lime juice which more or less "cooks" it with it's natural acid. It is garnished heavily with cilantro and absolutely out of this world. Before the meal, you get a bowl of cancha, which is a roasted corn that goes perfectly with the Crystal beer on offer.
Chifa Union: Best Chinese Restaurant in Peru!
Chinese food in Peru you may ask? Well, this restaurant offers an excellent large serving of wonton soup and several plates. The service is top of the line. How much you may ask? Under 4 soles (around $1.25 USD). Oh, they are open for lunch only inside the Huaraz Market.
Favorite Dish: Take your pick, any plate is good. Try the Minalesa Especial.
Café Creperie "El Encuentro": Delicious Crepes
We found it on the first day we got to Huaraz and had some great crepes. and also the hot chocolate was delicious.
Hostal Raymondi: Jamon anyone
Small hostal eatery with decently priced breakfasts and somewhat expensive though delicious fruit shakes.
Favorite Dish: The local jamon (ham) is well worth a try.
