Fast-food stands on Avenida Perú and Calle 35, near the Ministerio de Economía y Finanzas, cater to office workers who want cheap deep-fried goodies. They’re convenient to those staying in Calidonia hotels.
Restaurante Rincón Tableño #5 (Avenida Cuba near Calle 31 Este, tel. 227- 5649, 5:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Mon.–Sat., 5:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m. Sun., US$3–4) is a basic comida corriente cafeteria except that the waitresses wear pretty pollera-style blouses. The menu changes daily.
