All right, all right. I know what you want, dearest fellow travelers. Forget anything I might write, you want to see the food! And so, I give you foods of Ecuador, part 1:
I could eat the mashed-potato-with-cheese-then-fried llapingachos every day, and the creamy corn mixture of humitas is delicious (I also had one of the sweet types of humitas, but forgot to photograph it). Everything in this post is highly recommended!
I have very fond memories of beans and rice from both Guatemala and Nicaragua (places you should go, by the way). I would happily eat them every day; they were and are ubiquitous.
Mmm, locro! And is that té de fruta? Try the mora, that’s my favorite! I wish someone would open an Ecuadorian restaurant here…
I’m not a big fan of fruit teas. This is a black tea.
But I’ve had jugo de mora and it’s my favorite!
Yep, llapingachos are pretty much the best.
