Any self-respecting foodie should ensure they order cabrito en sangre (goat in blood) and acamayas (fresh water prawns) before surfing the menu for other local dishes.

Perhaps one of the sincerest gestures you can give to the people you meet along the way is to go to the trouble to speak some common phrases in their language. Buenas tardes is Spanish for good afternoon. ¡Buena suerte! will also come in handy. It means good luck.
