Visiting Puno

Our next stop was Puno, located on the coast of the lake Titicaca – the highest lake in the world. It’s amazing to see the lake from the hill. The views are stunning!

Puno is a nice city to visit. There are a lot of nice restaurants, located at the main walking street that connects the Plaza Mayor with a smaller square.

Delicious food in Mojsa, Puno

Across the Plaza Mayor, on the other side of the Cathedral, you will find a small restaurant called Mojsa. It has pretty good reviews on TripAdvisor and our guide recommended it as well. The food there is very delicious and it’s not expensive.


The altitude sickness is really an issue in those cities above 3000 m. If you have a problem with it, just order the Mojsa Energy drink. It’s tea made of coca leaves, honey and lime juice. Really delicious! And don’t worry, coca tea is not a drug and you can drink it everywhere in the country. It does help to fight the altitude sickness.


I had red quinoa salad with grilled chicken. The salad was covered with berry dressing. It was nice to look at it and taste it. They also have a delicious chicken soup, so if you don’t want to eat much because of the altitude, order just a salad without a meat or soup.

I recommend this restaurant. The food comes very fast and it’s very good. They have many desserts as well, but this time I didn’t order one.

  1. Feeling the high on the highest lake in the world, eh? πŸ™‚ That tea looks a bit dodgy but the food looks delish.


    1. It’s really high, sometimes difficult to take a breath. And the tea tasted great although it looked a bit weird πŸ˜‰
