Who can tell me more about "pension" restaurants?

Hi, I'm considering Bolivia for retirement. I was reading a blog about Tarija that mentioned cheap restaurants called pensions where locals ate cheap set lunches. It was said that you can negotiate with many of these pensions to pay a monthly rate for a meal a day that greatly reduced costs, $45 a month at this one pension. Is that common across Bolivia or unique to that area? Also there are rooms for rent with either a shared or private bath called piezas that generally cost $60 to $100 a month. Typical for the whole country? Thanks, and I greatly enjoy this website, Wade
