First Review by Scrablero

Nice, home-cooked food

4 Posted on 01 / 26 / 2013

The family that runs this place is very nice. The food is good; it's like home cooking. They are open for breakfast, lunch and early dinner most of the time. As of December 2012 the set meal of the day is 10 soles. There are 2 other veggie restaurants in town (as you can see from the other reviews) but this one is probably the best choice, considering the food and the location.

Pros: Good basic food, Location

Veggie Oasis in Iquitos

5 Posted on 03 / 29 / 2012

This little restaurant opened in January 2012, run by a Seventh-Day-Adventist family. To my knowledge, it is the only vegetarian oasis in this jungle city of 400,000 (where wild animals are sold in the markets and made into jewelry). The set lunch (8 soles/US$3) includes soup, a choice of entree (usually with rice), and a cool fruit drink. You can also order off the menu, which includes veggie burgers, salads, sandwiches, and fruit juices.

The family is very kind and sincere. Ever, the oldest son, is studying gastronomy and it was his idea to start the restaurant. He sat and talked with me every time I ate there (my Spanish is good). They're eager to attract foreign visitors, and Ever promises to study English!

Pros: filling meals, reasonable prices, friendly service
Cons: on busy street
