something to remember - Edit

We needed somewhere vegetarian and in iquitos, peru, thats hard to find. Asked at the hostel and they rang up Walter, the lovely owner, who was just about to shut and we went round. He gave us a wonderful welcome. We had the normal menu which was delicious. A generous portion of fresh spinach and tomato salad in lime juice. And a lime water to accompany it. To follow we had adelicious soup, with subtle flavours. He offered us more without extra charge and this was all for just 10soles. He sat and engaged with us, telling us stories. very lovely interesting man. i suggest you go !

An excellent find - I intend to eat here each day while in Iquitos - Edit

I am very happy to have found this place. A friend stumbled upon it and told me about it. An inexpensive (by local standards) fully vegan daily menu (soup, salad, main - more or less) that is prepared using local ingredients. Very simple yet very tasty. Walter, who is from Iquitos but spent time in other countries, owns and runs the place and is a vegan himself and very helpful. He speaks great English and is friendly and talkative. The places is small (a few tables and chairs) and clean (possibly easy to miss but there is a board outside and when the shutters are down it reads the Vegan Voice - oh yeah). It just opened last Wednesday and I think Walter is finding his feet so things may evolve. I highly recommend this place and I personally have every intention to go back on a daily basis while in Iquitos. I'd like to still check out some more of the other eating places (been to a few already) whilst I'm here in Iquitos as a gauge and will review them too but I've been in Peru the last month and this place stands out for its care and simplicity in offering good quality vegan food.

Pros: Use of fresh local ingredients, Inexpensive, Friendly and helpful
