Don't forget to add some papaya arequipenia, local specialties. Alone is not good as harsh but a very fresh juices. Another super recommended on the second floor is the angle of Dona Rosa (opposite fabrics). You will recognize his little store because it contains newspaper articles that the crowning Queen of queso helado. What is it? Delicious coconut ice cream flavored with cinnamon. A very generous portion, it costs only 2 g and I would prepare on the spot without freezer and ice cream maker, other than ice cream! In General vala worth trying the dishes they offer, the prices are competitive and raw good and fresh!
