Really cheap vegetarian, Chinese food

This Chinese, vegetarian restaurant is located just off Gran Columbia, before the traffic circle with La Avenida de las Americas, on the west side of Cuenca. It's on the south side of Gran Columbia and a little hard to see because of all the tram construction in front of it. Everyone in Cuenca... read more

Ok, honestly I've never had their almuerzo but I've tried everything else and have taken a bit of this or that from the almuerzo bar to try. The chow mein is very good for Ecuador but extremely oily. The eggrolls are the same. Drinks options are non-existent. Juice or soy milk... uhh where's my cerveza? Still with all that said,... More

Use to eat here once a week but I have moved and it's not so easy now. Great food, no meats, juices are great. Counter service only and the outside sitting is wonderful on good days. My body thanks me every time I eat here. Very reasonable prices, quantity is excellent, very friendly owner and staff. Highly recommended.

This is a great place for lunch. It has a really bright cheery atmosphere and is kept very clean. It is vegan (no meats here), but lots of beautiful food. It has a walk up counter that you go to and let the server know which 4 dishes you would like from what's offered. You then also get a bowl... More

It's hard to find really great vegetarian food in Cuenca (meaning no meat, chicken, seafood) and so we were thrilled by Good Affinity's wonderful food. It's so affordable that it's tempting to eat there everyday since it's far cheaper than cooking at home! Very nice people working there. They all seem to be so happy. Great vibe. We've become devoted... More

Good Affinity has delicious and fresh food...lots of vegetables and brown rice. The daily almuerzo is a great deal. My only concern is the MSG they use in their cooking (I guess that's to be expected with Chinese food.) The chaulafan is addictive, and the soy milk comes sweetened or unsweetened. The employees are very kind and helpful, and the... More

We fell in love with Good Affinity when we stayed in Cuenca for a few months. It is a cute little chinese restaurant with a pretty outdoor terrace with tables. They serve fresh squeezed juice ,fresh made soymilk, and homemade soup with the lunch entrees for $3.75-$4.00 USD. If you go early enough you can get the plate of the... More

We ate here several times last April-May and always took away a "to go" box. The food rarely disappoints and the sopa (soup) is always amazing. Last visit in March 2014 and not much had changed except the ten cent to go box is now 25 cents.

My wife and I have been here several times and are never disappointed. Good sized servings. Vegetarian restaurant which has soy burgers, but we order spring rolls and rice. Very good prices. Good soups and juices. Staff is always helpful.

We love the almeurzos at Good Affinity. Everything is vegetarian, and the flavor is great. You get white or brown rice, plus 4 side-veggies, soup, and choice of a drink, (I always get the soya milk) all for $2.75! My husband, who has a larger appetite, also gets the vegetarian egg-roll for an additional $.80. The $3.00 chow mein is... More
