Quito is a magical city. It not only provides a rich history, and culture with varied adventures, but the amazing food scene will please your stomach too. It’s an excellent place for any foodie (regardless of budget) to fulfill their deepest culinary desires. I encourage you not to leave Quito without visiting the following five eats.
“Cedrón restaurant” at Casa Gangotena
Located in the heart of Quito and inside Casa Gangotena, Cedrón restaurant offers a fine dining experience serving not only traditional Ecuadorian dishes, but also gourmet treats that will make your mouth water. The ambiance is relaxed, while still being distinguished, and offers breathtaking views of Plaza San Francisco and of Cuenca Street.
For appetizers, you must try their trio of breads, and their empanadas, which come with a variety of homemade sauces and spreads. The highlight for me were the llama spring rolls. I would never have imagined myself eating llama, but these were outstanding.
