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. The 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 7:00am-3:30pm, 6:30pm-9:00pm.

Amazing place on the plaza des armas - Edit

We stayed for a month in Pucallpa, bringing regular visits to this restaurant. We would recommend the lunch menu of 8 soles that is almost always delicious. There were days that the portions felt little or not as tasty, but those were the big exception.This restaurants provides much value by giving large pieces of seitan and beans. In terms of nutrition, it is great. We loved the soups!

There is a lot of choice à la carte as well. I never even had that much choice out of several dishes in Europe.

Very friendly owners and staff, at lunch time many Peruvians come here to eat. Nutritous and tasty.

Pros: Nutritious and healthy, Much choice, Friendly staff and good price

Lovely - Edit

I eat here quite frequently, it can be a little expensive but it is worth it and the daily menu is cheap enough. Really nice food and really nice staff in a tranquil setting tucked away in the pucallpa plaza. Well worth a visit. They also sell bags of soya meat for those that crave a bit of a protein hit here and there (like me)

Pros: relaxing, not too expensive, large selection

Cons: can be a little expensive

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
