Virgilio Martinez, the mastermind behind the world´s #5 best restaurant in the world Central, opened MIL in the Sacred Valley in February 2018. It is completely unique to anything else offered in the area, and one could easily say that it is the best restaurant in the Sacred Valley. Offering an innovative 8-course tasting menu at lunch, I would highly recommend any self-proclaimed foodie take time to dine here during a trip to Peru. The restaurant has a simple and clean architecture, and is built right above the circular Inca terraces of Moray. It is a spectacular setting, un-disrupted by the adobe building thanks to its natural design.
Something that makes MIL even more unique than just its one of a kind tasting menu, is the experience that comes with dining here. Each of the 8 courses at MIL reflect the 8 ecosystems found at the high altitude (3,600m / 11,800ft) that the restaurant sits at. Virgilio, the creator, has been experimenting in his connected lab with cooking at this altitude, and working extremely closely with 3 nearby indigenous communities to learn from their knowledge of techniques for farming, growing, and cooking at altitude. When you dine at the restaurant, you also get to tour the on-site food labs and learn about the work with the communities.
