Fallen Angel Hotel & Restaurant, Cusco
We visited Fallen Angel in Cuzco on a recommendation from a friend of a friend, but this quirky, stylish and at times plain mental Hotel and Restaurant exceeded all our expectations. The decor is out of this world. You step off the hectic streets of Peru into a weird haven of the bizarre. The walls are sky blue with fluffy white clouds. The tables are bath tubs filled with gold fish and as you walk for room to room you stumble further into this mad world.
The menu matches the theme and there are an array of creative cocktails. The steak menu is astonishing and offers quality cuts of meat with a concoction of unusual accompaniments and sauces. I wanted to try all of them however on this occasion we went for 'Jungle Juice'. What was delivered in front of me was not only the most perfectly cooked rare piece of steak but also an unusual and delicious collaboration of banana and jungle fruit flavours.
ontinuing in the same whimsical and bizarre concept of Fallen Ángel, the famous yet small hotel is located in the same colonial house. There are only 5 rooms, each of them with a completely different eclectic design. Cusco as a city is full of surprises, it's not just a base for adventure seekers on a stop over before commencing the Inca Train, it's got a thriving cosmopolitan vibe, and some amazing restaurants and bars.
