One of my favorite things when travelling is to be able to check out the food carts along the streets. This gorgeous fruit cart was near the condo in Miraflores - usually passed it on our morning walks near the cliffs.
Along the streets of Cusco, we found these shops selling meat, potatoes and corn. It smelled delicious.
And of course, there were the fancy breads - chuta. I was told that a person would buy one of these if you were planning to drop by someone’s home for a visit. Each large bread is decorated differently and I’ve heard there’s healthy competition out there to see who can design the best chuta!
A great article here on the history and traditions of the chuta bread.
