Recommendation for Alma Cuencana, restaurant (lunch only)

This restaurant continues to exceed the expectations of my taste buds at every visit, which, as of recently, has been several times a week. The restaurant used to be called Alma Bendita but it was purchased and is now run by a different owner. I have to say, I think it is considerably better than it was and even then it was the absolute best value for a lunch in this city at $3.75. There are 3 choices of the main course (one vegetarian) and for $4 you can have a pick of two. The last time I ate there I had the "broasted chicken" and the "shrimp stir-fry". Chicken was perfect and the shrimp were juicy and big. If you don't believe me take a look at the photo. For some reason the quantity of people eating there has gone down since they switched ownership. It could just be b/c of the vacations Cuenca's students have been on but either way this is my favorite place to eat lunch and I really would like to see them flourish and stay in business for many years to come. Part of me wants to keep Alma Bendita my private little gourmet lunch miracle but really it just needs to be shared. Try it one day and you will delighted you did. To find the restaurant: it is in the middle of the block on Presidente Cordova between Benigno Malo and Luis Cordero and it is right next to a computer shop called Giga Computer. It is a big large entrance with white and orange signs and you walk up to the second floor. Enjoy.

Address: Presidente Cordova between Benigno Malo y Luis Cordero (2cnd Floor)
