Cheap, decent food

3 Posted on 12 / 28 / 2008

I ate here several times, and sometimes it was good, and sometimes it wasn't. The soups are great and the fruit salad is usually very good. You can also get very cheap sandwiches for there or to go, like a soy burger for $1 or less, or a triple sandwich with avocado, tomato and egg or whatever you want. Not the greatest food, but really cheap and if you're not too picky, could be a great option. Don't get the pancake or omelette unless you like very fried food! There are tons of veggie restaurants in Arequipa--just look around. On Jerusalem Street alone there are at least two others, but they are more expensive (and better food). There's another cheap one past the big church in the real local downtown section of town, but I forgot the name or where it is--right near Calle Nueva somewhere. They have decent food and interesting cakes, such as quinoa cake, etc.

Big portions but plain food

3 Posted on 08 / 19 / 2008

Gopal has cheap set menus-- 5 soles (under $2 U.S.) for lunch, 8 soles (Under $3 U.S.) for dinner. I got the set lunch, which included a stuffed pepper (rocoto relleno), a layered potato/cheese dish, soy meat strips, rice pilaf, and salad. The portions were generous, but the food was bland and seemed like leftovers from the previous day (which it probably was). Dessert was a watery pineapple pudding, which wasn't great. Good for cheap and filling meals, but the food itself isn't great.

Pros: cheap, big portions
Cons: bland food
