Jr. Tarapaca 653 Interior 6, Pucallpa, Peru,

Pucallpa is a sweltering jungle city in Peru's Amazon Basin, and the only jungle city connected to the rest of Peru by road. One reason to visit is to board a river ferry traveling from Pucallpa to Iquitos and beyond. El Paraiso is a cruelty-free oasis in this fishing town. It offers set meals (soup, entree, drink) for around 9 soles (US$3), and an a la carte menu. Meals are of ample size. Egg is used in some dishes; otherwise it's all vegan. There TV is loud. This small restaurant is on the Plaza de Armas, at the back of a walkway. A sign out front points the way. Open Mon-Sun for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

A Welcome Veggie Oasis - Edit

What a relief to find this veggie restaurant in the otherwise nothing town of Pucallpa. I had their set menu (9 soles/US$3) every time, but they have an a la carte menu as well. They serve some egg dishes, but vegans are easily catered for. It appears to be popular with locals.

Pros: location (main plaza), reasonable prices, good food

Cons: TV blasting away

oasis in a frontier town - Edit

This is really a fantastic place... right on the Plaza de Armas, open every day for lunch (till around 3:30) and dinner (around 5 to 9 p.m.) Was very happy to find this on HC and went straight there when I arrived in Pucallpa. Owned be a friendly family who can accommodate vegan requests (they made their veggie burger, which usually has egg whites, special for me on request).

Daily menus with typical (simple) Peruvian fare, + an Amazonian accent. Have been eating here for the last several days and would highly recommend it.

Pros: central, friendly family, great food

Cons: uses a lot of eggs, a bit hot during the day
