Delicious cheap vegan food. Go there you wont regret it! The owner is a super sweet lady and remember us when we returned. 7 soles for soup and main Peruvian style or 10 soles for falafel main.

All the meals we had here were delicious. It's so great to have an affordable, vegan option in Cusco - 7 soles for a two course meal, set menu (one option). Mind you, the food is so filling that after our first visit (and needing a siesta!) we started sharing one 2-course meal between two. If you just want the... More

Govinda is such a nice person and her food is so delicious! You get there more than the standard "Arroz con ...", a great variation of local food!

Found Govinda Lila's base on other TripAdvisor reviews. Although I got a bit lost trying to find the San Blas market, you can't miss it once you enter the market. For 7 soles, you get a complete meal with a soup to start and an entree of the day, along with a cup of hot coca tea. Highly recommend for... More

This is an all vegetarian place with one fixed menu for lunch every day. It is vegetarian but is exactly like the other classic Mercardo food stalls and counters. So it feels like a Peruvian eatery. The owner is very friendly and vegan herself. It is not all vegan but if you ask she will adjust your meal to be... More

One of my favorite stops in Cusco! An unexpected find in the the San Blas market tucked away in the corner, for only 7 soles as of this review, you get hot soup, main entree and tea. Service is super quick and food completely delicious. I've been in Cusco for the last three month and make sure I come here... More

Great to have a stall at the market that serves veg food. The soup was delicious, so was the eggplant milanesa entree.

While shopping in the San Blas market, I noticed there were a number of little restaurants. It was around lunch time so I decided to try one of them. The price was incredibly cheap for multiple courses. I would have paid a much higher price. The food was fantastic and I am so glad I stumbled upon this little spot... More

In the San Blas market, there's a little corner where you get a complete vegetarian meal for 6 soles (as of May 2015). If you are a vegetarian on a budget, I recommend this place.
