Sample Quito’s Best Quick Bites
Wandering Quito’s varied historical town is enthralling, endlessly fascinating and unfortunately, so time consuming you find little time to eat. So why not walk and munch. A plethora of food options offer small bites for a long day of church pointing and museum hunting. Plaza Grande throbs with floating food vendors selling corn, chocolate bananas and coconut ice-cream lollies. For something more substantial, grab a phenomenally tasty cured meat sandwich from Sanduches de la Plaza Grande. Despite the $6 price tag, the light baguette and delicious sauces will keep you happily fuelled for hours. If sugar levels begin to wane, head down the cobbled streets of La Ronda and grab a hot chocolate from Khipus Artesanias Choco-Cafe or an exotic ice-cream cone from Dulce Placer.
