Ecuador - Quito Restaurant Top 10

Enjoy a meal in one of our favorite restaurants in Quito

Getting your hands on good Ecuadorian food is easy. Ecuadorians use mainly fresh and wholesome ingredients instead of processed food! Everything here tastes better, from bananas, mangoes, passion fruit, strawberries to blackberries! Delicious locally-grown fruits and vegetables are best purchased at the food markets. They are also known for their flavorful side dishes like baked bananas, corns, a variety of beans and yucca chips. Maden and Garabato Yuyo are a must-try in the Amazon as they are extremely high in protein.

Ecuadorian beverages

Guayusa Tea is a famous Ecuadorian tea which contains high levels of caffeine. Ecuador also produces one of the best cacao in the world, so do not forget to get your hands on some chocolate while you are there. While they are lesser known for their beers, do not underestimate them. There are over 500 different types of beers throughout Ecuador!
