El Parador de Moray is a restaurant that I will not easily forget. On our way to the Sacred Valley, me and my travel companions made a stop in the middle of nowhere. Or so it seemed... Restaurant El Parador de Moray is located next to an incredible Inca site. A place where time has stood still.
The archaeological site in Moray is an impressive example of the ingenuity of the Incas. In fact the enormous terraced cavities seem to have been a laboratory for agricultural experiments. The temperature on the different levels varies a lot, giving the Incas the opportunity to grow crops that were not indigenous.
What the Incas and the current inhabitants of Moray have in common, is their love for good food! El Parador de Moray offers only the best local produce, such as corn, quinoa, potatoes, beans, chicken, pork and trout. The mouthwatering dishes are served in buffet style.
You can start with a hearty soup to warm up your body (much needed in the mountains!), followed by a healthy salad, quinoa tabbouleh, vegetarian causa and then on with the grilled meat and fish. For those with a big appetite there's even a variety of desserts... but that was simply too much for me.
