I wandered into this restaurant on a Sunday morning perused the menu, found it very reasonable and decided on breakfast. The coffee, brought immediately, was excellent. I had the vegetarian plate, which turned out to be a very large avocado sandwich with sides of salad and chips. Thinking it was small and being very hungry, I had ordered a side of the traditional stuffed rice ball and ended up with way more than I could eat. The prices were very reasonable and service was quite good. No frills, just basic food and surroundings, a short walk from Plaza de Armas.

Home cooked style meas, great variety of the menu 10.50 soles soup or salad with main dish and some jungle juice. I findmyself there several times a week when I do not fee like cooking myself. We also usually take our clients there for lunch before we depart for the forest. closed on saturdays and sometimes there is a wait for a seating- in the long run, it isquite a value even if you do have to wait 20 min for a table

Want to go in for an Iquitos menu at lunch that you won't later regret? The Huasai cannot be beat at 11s --- you get your choice of 1 of 3 appetizers, one of about 6 entrees and jugo. Postre for about 2s more. Hard to beat at lunchtime.

Huasia is the absolute best lunch value in Iquitos. Each day they have a list of specials that include and app, lunch and a selection of fruit juices to drink for about $3. They are only open for lunch but this is at the top of my list for lunch places.
