If you are hungry - Edit

We had some trouble finding the place since the address we had led to a hostel just above Mercaderes, but the restaurant is a little below Mercaderes. Very nice and helpful staff, huge portions and good food. Mostly vegan food but some dishes contain dairy products.

Local food, local customers, loved it - Edit

This is the place to go if you are really hungry and want to try simple and filling Peruvian dishes (chincharron, lomo saltado). The portions were enormous, and we had difficulty finishing our plates. I'm usually not a big fan of soy meat but this was tasty and marinated in a lovely sauce. Service was great, we were welcomed with a big smile. Also liked the fact that it opened for diner and most customers were locals.

Pros: Big portions , Peruvian food , Open for diner

Set lunch 12 soles - Edit

Really busy with locals, the set lunch has salad, soup, 2 options of main, fruit salad for desert & 2 choices of drink. The staff where very helpful and even though we did not understand the 2 mains. They brought us both plates to view and choose the option.

Good Basic Food, Better For Vegetarians - Edit

Two of us ate dinner here. Unfortunately, half the set menu wasn't vegan - milk in the soup and yogurt for dessert. Ordered salchipapas (soy meat and chips with sauce) and saltado (rice with stir fried vegetables, chips and soy meat). My boyfriend loved the salchipapas - oily, meaty and filling.

Pros: Cheap, Tasty

Cons: Lots Of Dairy

Delicious Vegetarian/Vegan Peruvian - Edit

Set lunch is good and cheap, a la carte items are yummy, and open for dinner (with a set menu). They also sell some items to go to cook at home (vegan dried fake meat, vegetarian gelatin, etc.). The staff is super nice and accommodating.

Good Place/food/atmosphere - Edit

We ate there a couple of times, and gave up once since it was too crowded.
The food was good, and they lowered the price of one dish since we asked it without cheese.
We were also surprised to find out the juice (we had piñapple ;) is 2 cups, well worth the 5 soles.

They know what vegan means, and also has some (few) commercial vegan products like vegan jello.

Pros: Good food, Good atmosphere, Cheap

Cons: Not a large vegan variety, Sometimes over crowded

Good food + open for dinner - Edit

I went here a couple of times in December 2014 and I thought the food was good, especially at lunch. The dinner menu of the day is limited and much simpler than the set lunch. Currently the set meal of the day is 10 soles.

You pay first at the cashier and then take your receipt to an available seat. The place really fills up, especially after about 1230pm, and people willingly share tables, so don't be shy if there are no tables left.

You get soup, salad, the main plate, drink and dessert and you will leave full! Only a few blocks from the main plaza, and near other veggie places.

Pros: Location, Flavors

Cons: Gets packed with people
