After visiting Museo del Banco Central Pumapungo I had planed to eat lunch at El Maíz, which is a recommended restaurant nearby. But on the way I passed Pumapungo, which had a sign outside advertising lunches for $2.00 (July 2011). So I decided to go inside and have a look. The restaurant is on the other side of a small courtyard and I decided to eat there. For $2 you get a soup, a main plate, a desert and a juice. The first time I ate here I also got a bowl of Mote de Maíz and the second time I had lunch here (yes, I came back another day) I got a bowl of popcorn.
Many of the lunch costumers seem to be people working in the neighbourhood, and there were no tourist at all, which I liked. Even though there are many lunch guests it is a quiet place.
