We liked this place. We were the only tourists there. Very reasonably priced. Head's up, all the food is brown, fried, and/or steamed. Lots of yucca and plantains. It was pretty salty but tasted good. Juice was delicious.

A very popular and therefore jammed place with local folk, Blanquita's specializes in local dishes and does a very good job with them. It's a bit out of the way from the tourist district, not within walking distance, but a kidney-jouncing ride in a moto-taxi will get you there.

Decor and ambience are not the attractions: it's the food that draws the crowds. Low-priced, good service, but it's sweltering inside! Non-Spanish-speakers might have difficulty with the menu. Outside, the place does a huge take-out business. Worth a visit for good eats and some local color.

Very good meats and fish. Very clean and welcoming. Prices are very reasonable, try to sit on the second floor.

The restaurant is a little bit far from the rest of Iquitos turistic area but it is worth the ride. They serve typical food from the region (like "Juanes", a rice dish).
The dishes are delicious and generous (the "chuletas" for example are very big). We were a group of ten and we all left the place happy and full...
Don't miss it !
