¡Buen provecho! - Eating in Quito [06:45]
October 8, 2012 4 Comments Bienvenido y buen provecho! This week it's all about food! Let's go to some markets and try some typical ecuadorian food! The first market I'm visiting is the "Feria de la Orfelia", it is located in the very north of the city where farmer from around Quito sell their products. It is twice a week, not very touristic but definitely worth visiting. The second market is the "mercado Santa Clara" located close to La Mariscal in the center of the city. This market is much smaller and does, next to the great choice of fruit and vegetable, offer a big variety of dishes for lunch. On my plate was next to the fish "ceviche de camaron", the stuff with the shrimps and "ceviche de conchas negras" and I spare you the details here, but if you want, look it up on the internet and maybe you get an idea of why I didn't feel too good on the weekend -- Carsten, you shouldn't eat everything!!! The "Bolones de verde" are as well a typical ecuadorian dish made of green plantain stuffed with cheese or pork. These fried dumplings are served as a snack or breakfast and that's why it came with a coffee. I was told there's also sweet ones but so far I couldn't find those. Finally Rafael Vincente Correa Delgado is the name of the president of Ecuador who took office on January 15th 2006 and is very popular in the countries population for he's one of them, coming from a working class family with an indigenous heritage.
