Ecuadorian Typical Food Restaurants in Quito


Ecuadorian food is well known for its diversity in ingredients and the really good taste. In Quito you can find all the different dishes that come from the four regions of the country.

The typical food restaurants in Quito have in their menu dishes such as seafood from the Coast, potatoes and mote from the Sierra, fish from Galapagos and guanta from the Amazonas. So anyway what you find is a great variety and different tastes.

The main ingredients that are used in Ecuadorian cuisine are potatoes, rice, bananas, shrimp, lentils, etc. Also you can find some other exotic dishes such as cuy (guinea pig), tapir, and guanta.

Typical food is really less expensive than international cuisine. You can get it from $ 1.00 up to $ 5.00. Prices will depend because of the place and the quality. Also there are really expensive restaurants of Ecuadorian cuisine, which are La Choza, La Ronda, or La Casa de a lado.

The best choice to get the authentic typical food is to go to the valleys around Quito, and go to one of the many restaurants that you can find around. You can get really tasty dishes at really low prices; this is the case of Vicente's at Mitad del Mundo.

Try to avoid eating in the small carts that you find in the street, because many tourists had get sick because of eating over there.
