Pretty good place
Posted on 11 / 17 / 2009
I went here several times in October and November of 2009. The price is 7 soles for the set meal Monday through Saturday, and 8 soles on Sunday. This is a good place for foreigners because there is a display of the food
just before you enter the restaurant. The items on the top shelf are the first plate, and the items on the bottom shelf are the second plate. You can just point to what you want, in case you don't speak Spanish. The set meal includes one plate from each of the 2 shelves, plus a piece of whole grain bread, a fruit drink and a simple dessert. The customer service here is great. The food is good, but in my opinion there are way too many carbs on nearly every plate (lots of corn, yuca, potatoes, rice). You usually get both rice and potatoes with every meal, and I would prefer more variety of non-starchy vegetables (such as carrots, broccoli, celery, etc.) There are about 25 tables here, so there's always a place to sit, even at rush hour. A good thing here is that if you eat lunch late (after 230pm for instance), they will still have set meals available, where the other veggie places will have already run out. Also, they have the set meal available on Sunday with good meals available. The other places in town (if they are open) tend to have a very simple meal on Sunday, or you must order a la carte, which is more expensive. Overall a good place, but I didn't give them a full five stars for the lack of non-starchy veggies. To find the restaurant, just walk west on Ave. Pardo, and when you see the LAN Airlines building, turn left for a block. The building is painted green. Very convenient to the tourist area in the Miraflores neighborhood.
