Ibarra Restaurants

  • La Choza: Eat well and support community programs!

    by ssaudek Written Mar 21, 2011

    La Choza restaurant is conveniently located just off the two parks at the center of Ibarra, at the corner of Calle Sucre and Oviedo. It has good Ecuadorean cuisine, friendly and prompt service and a casual atmosphere. The soup/stew is especially good. Most of the diners are locals.

    The restaurant funds and/or is the home base for a number of community service programs: a youth group, music and dancing programs. It's a model that's used in a number of cities in South America, and provides a sustainable source of funds for programs so they don't need to rely on outside grants. For example, see the youth group's web site: http://www.juventudibarra.tk

    Favorite Dish: Chicken, rice and corn are their staple and it's fine; our favorite dish was a stew that included chicken, potato and a lot of vegetables.

    Numerous shops in the Ibarra area: Carved treasures everywhere

    There isn't any ONE shop that I'm recommending. However, Ibarra IS an excellent place to get carved wooden items of almost every possible ilk. From tiny carved hummingbirds up to wooden crocodiles weighing hundreds of pounds, it's all available around Ibarra. Pricing, like everything in Ecuador, is more reasonable than you'd ever expect.

    What to buy: Various carved items. There are all sorts of designs and models from which to choose.

    What to pay: It really depends on what you buy. But, the price will almost always be less than you think it will be. Crafts such as these are very reasonable in Ecuador.

    Wood carving shop, Ibarra
