Vegetarian Meals

Nourish your body and spirit with the cuisine at Willka T’ika, an exotic yet comforting fusion of Andean flavors.

Gourmet organic vegetarian meals are served daily, using high-protein Andean grains and legumes, as well as organic, freshly harvested vegetables and salads grown on-site. We welcome vegan, gluten-free, and special dietary requests.

Willka T’ika has the only 100% hormone-free and chemical-free gourmet vegetarian hotel kitchen in Peru’s Sacred Valley. Our gardens are strictly organic.

Start the day with a cup of freshly harvested herbal tea or fresh roasted Quillabamba coffee, grown on our staff’s family farms. The buffet breakfast includes breads from a local oven, omelets, homemade muesli using kiwicha and other Andean grains, and sliced fruits and avocados from the subtropical Machu Picchu area.

Dinner includes a hearty soup, freshly harvested salad, and gourmet vegetarian entrees with steamed vegetables. Most meals include quinoa and kiwicha, the grain that gave Incan warriors strength, or tarwi, an Andean legume containing more protein than red meat.

Breakfast and dinner are served at set hours in the dining room each day. Picnics or lunches in the gardens may be ordered at breakfast or the day before.

Even if you are not usually vegetarian, you will find the cuisine at Willka T’ika wholesome, original, and delicious.
