First Review by VeganSoapDude

good lunch spot - Edit

The daily dish meal is a great option for 13.50soles. Portions are big and food is nice. However there really aren't many vegan options. Owners are really lovely, wifi is good, and place is comfortable with great ocean views. Juices are nice, but a tad over priced( 8.50soles).

Pros: good lunch set, lovely staff, nice interior and views

Cons: very few vegan options

not a lot of vegan choices but it's on seafront ! - Edit

After discussion with the staff, it remains that the only vegan possible plates (with arrangements) is the falafels and the burritos. Nothing is indicated on the menu for vegans (and not all ingredients are precised).
The smoothies were served warm (might be more peasant with ice in a city where it's common to find 30°C)
It's better to be clear about what you eat or not !
But the staff was helpful and the ambience was pleasant.
The falafels themselves weren't amazing. The problem is that they served them without the sauce (containing mayonesa).

Pros: seafront, atmosphere

Cons: warm smoothies, very few vegan choices, no desserts

Muy rico - Edit

Un lugar muy familiar, colorido y frente al mar! Muy rico y con opcion de menu a precio intermedio.
Lo malo es que no saben reemplazar el huevo y no tenian opciones veganas. Pero si no eres vegano es una muy buena opcion!

Feels as if you are dining in a cosy home! - Edit

Otra Cosa has got several great veggie options, some vegan options. The best deal you can get there is the daily menu. They have excellent coffees ("real" coffee!) and make a wicked Dutch apple pie. Prices are reasonable, most mains are around S/15 (about U$5) and the atmosphere is just great. Owners are lovely and if you are Dutch make sure to let the owner (Berry) know because so is he, and he loves to chat Dutch for a bit :) If you are with a group and you want anything special, make sure to contact them about it before hand and they can arrange it for you.

Pros: Varied menu, Free, fast wifi, Great coffees

Best place for pancakes and apple pie - Edit

Berry runs Otra Cosa with his wife Milagros. They are the kindest people, wanting to accommodate their guests in any way possible. They still offer pretty much what others reviewers are mentioning here like burritos, falafel but I also saw a couple of nice-sounding salads on the menu like a Greek salad and one with carrot and beets. My personal favorites at Otra Cosa: pancakes and apple pie.

helpful owner - Edit

Lovely owner eho was very friendly&spoke english. Food was abit dissapointing though. I ordered a burrito &it had baked beans in tomatoe sauce. Burrito is ment to be mexican with black beans. Its usually spicy too but this was tasteless&the veg was also wrong. This was typical perivan food with european names. I also ordered falafel another day &that was abit boring too but i had menu of the day another time & it was good with quinoa&veg &punkin soup&juice. I had massage here too &it was only ok. Overall this place was the only option i found in huanchaco for vegan so it was ok. I didnt have the courage to tell the owner he needs new chef, i just said food was ok anytime he asked. It was ok when you dont have other options.

Pros: english spoken, easy to find

Cons: not a good chef

An ok place - Edit

If you're a vegan I recommend asking about each ingredient that goes in each dish. I ordered a burrito so asked only about cheese and any kind of cream and she said no, but it came with mayo. It's hard to make oneself understood of what vegan means in Peru.

yummy healthy food - Edit

Cozy little place serving up healthy and tasty meals. We were very happy to find this place after being served up bland meals of rice, potatoes and salad at other parts of Peru. Highly recommend. Also have excellent massages.

Pros: location, free wifi, tasty food

Good food! - Edit

This place is nice with a good atmosphere and right on the beach! They food is good, but a little strange. They have falafel served on a hamburger bun with a cream sauce (made from milk so order it without!) and no hummus. They also have interesting and good vegan burritos. The daily set meal could not be made vegan the day we were there, and they did speak English. It's a little expensive, but the food was good!

Pros: Good Food!, Falafel!

Cons: Not 100% Vegan, Expensive, Menu not vegan
