This is the strangest restaurant I've ever eaten at. Yes, it's in Iquitos, Peru, a city that is surreal in nearly every way, but there's something not quite right about the Yellow Rose of Texas.
First, the food... The quality of the food was average, at best. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything remarkable, either. I would compare it to your average truck stop food in the US. They did have a very large menu to order from. I had a simple egg sandwich and a cup of coffee. The prices are acceptable. They have a crocodile sandwich on the menu...I regret not trying it.
Now, the part about the bad feeling I got from this place. The waitresses are dressed in skin-tight clothes that were obviously designed to appeal to men. Most of the waitresses are very young, too. I suppose there's nothing wrong with this. Sex sells, after all. It works for the Hooters chain. The waitresses do not speak English, which is unfortunate because the restaurant attracts a lot of tourists from English speaking countries.
I met the owner who was polite and helpful. He sat at the table next to me with a couple of his buddies. What I heard coming from this table truly shocked me. One of the owner's buddies looked to be in his late sixties or early seventies (it was hard to tell). These guys spoke fluent Spanish but they mostly communicated to each other in English. At one point one of the waitresses came to their table to wait on them and as she was walking away one of the guys made a very strong sexual advance to her in English. I'm sure she didn't understand what he said...but I certainly did...and I was shocked. The owner was sitting right there with them and didn't say a thing about it. Creepy, it was.
