My favorite place to eat, and...
My favorite place to eat, and this goes for all over the world, is the market place or small street stands. This is where the soul of the country is feeding too. you might get a strange stomach in the begining, but you proberbly will anyway. Go where the local go, they know.
Cafe kaos in cuenca has exellent sandwiches and milkshakes.
Favorite Dish: La sopa de papas in Ecuador is pretty good.
There is no particular...
There is no particular restaurant I would mention here. There are a lot of good places to eat in every city. It depends on your taste which place is the best.
Favorite Dish: The most spectacular 'thing' to eat is 'cuy'. You get teeth and nails included but it is a real Ecuadorian delicacy! You have to try!

Mariane Cafe Restaurant in Baños
Authentic provencal cuisine for the of a fast food. The food take a while, but that's because each is prepared individually.
Favorite Dish: Succulent, locally-raised trout with tons of vegetables for US$ 4. Filet mignon in a peppered cream sauce with vegetables and papas au gratin for US$ 5.
Restaurant Vegetariano: Restaurant Vegetariano
It is a small and calm place. If you want you can sit in the garden which is very nice.
Favorite Dish: The restaurant serves only vegetarian meals, which is very populair in Vilcabamba. But it is really good, cheap and even the day menu is different and original.
Lots of places which are worth...
Lots of places which are worth visiting. Provided you avoid typical touristic places, it's highly possible you have good food in Ecuador. Don't miss the "ceviche de conchas negras" you'll be offered on the streets: large local clams freshly opened under your eyes and seasned with abundant lemon juice; wonderful!
Favorite Dish: I will prepare a more detailed report of Ecuadorian cuisine. By now, I'd like to state firmly that it is one among the most interesting and variated culture you may want to explore. In general, Latin America has no large grazing areas, due to this there are no big size ruminants, a fact which pauses some difficult to civilisations fighting for proteins: in upland Ecuador the solution is guinea-pigs!
there are so many, but the hot...
there are so many, but the hot dogs at El gordo y El negro in Urdesa (Guayaquil) are the absolute best. I don't know what the green sauce is, but it makes the hotdog.
Favorite Dish: arroz con camarones, the seafood was fabulous.
The cheapest food available is...
The cheapest food available is Chinese (restaurants are called chifas) where you can get huge portions of well cooked food for next to nothing-I won't say any prices because the currency is so changeable at the moment. Theres a great Chifa in Ambato which we went to several times - I forget the name but its quite close to the park. Also you must have the banana cake that is sold on the buses going into and out of Ambato - it is to die for- we used to go to Ambato especially for it!
My favorite restaurant is...
My favorite restaurant is called VIEJO JOSE. It is in Quito. Located on Reina Victoria y Colon.
It has authentic food and atmosphere. You will sit on wood benches and listen to salsa music all day at VIEJO JOSE.
Favorite Dish: At VIEJO JOSE'S you can have any coastal food of Ecuador.
I suggest the ceviche or menestra. Encebollado is also a fovorite of mine.Try a congrejo(crab)or two. For those of you who are not quite ready for the exotic stuff I suggest the 'arroz con camaron' rice and shrimp or 'quarto de pollo' a large piece of chicken.
La Fruteria Monserrat: La Fruteria Monserrat
There is an open, airy feeling at all of them, and one of them has Salvador Dali posters. Another has posters by an artist who I believe is Colombian, of very chubby people in lots of strange situations. The tables and chairs are also so small that you feel you are in a kindergarten.
Favorite Dish: Bolon de queso, a ball of cheese wrapped in dough
While staying in Quito you...
While staying in Quito you have to go eat a la Choza. There you will find tipycal plates from the region. Empanadas de morocho, llapingachos (potato pies), you can drink chicha. Then you can drive to Ambato, a town a few hours from Quito, where you find a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and you must eat CHUGCHUCARAS.
If you are in the coast you cannot leave before trying ceviche, or caldo de patas.
Favorite Dish: Empanadas de morocho.
market/restaurants: Try the Guinea Pigs
One of the national dishes in Ecuador is roasted guinea pig which is available at many markets and restaurants. Tastes good, by the way!!!
