This is a very popular place and often fills up with happy customers. The menu is mostly pizzas(tasty) and mexican selections. Lots of music and beer drinking going on. Locals like to have birthday parties here too.
Favorite Dish: The Veg-out Pizza

El Tentadero- good mix of salsa, merengue, reggaeton (spanish hiphop), and some occasional American music. Good place, cover about $2-3, usually with free drinks.
San Valentin- a ten second walk from El Tentadero, it's a good place to do some predancing drinking/ postdancing sobering up. Cheap beer, good food, lots of places to sit- it can get a bit crazy during weekends though.

One thing that I did see in the small towns and markets of Ecuador - tourists seeing the indigenous people (mainly the women with their distinct hats and clothes) and snapping pictures of them as if they were in a wax museum.
These are people - locals - you are their guest. Instead of snapping pictures of them - go up and say hello (preferrably in Español...or Quechua if you can!). Their main goal is for you to buy something, of course, but talking to people one-on-one instead of treating them like museum pieces will make the experience a lot more interesting and rewarding.
If you want to take pictures, ask, like you would anyone else. Then...buy something from them, or give up some pocket change.

Favorite thing: Although my visit to and my memories of Riobamba is influenced by the fact that I had my camera stolen on the bus, I still liked the town. I liked it even more, when I found a place to buy a new camera.
The town has some nice plazas and impressive buildings and churches.
