The best way to sample local cuisine is to dine at small cozy joints rather than upscale dining restaurants. One such place to dig into Ecuadorian cuisine is El Criollo. Aptly named 'criollo'—the term for local cuisine, the restaurant specializes in chicken dishes. Ecuadorian food is known for its diversity in tastes and unique ingredients. The menu at El Criollo is rich in potatoes, lentils, rice, bananas and fish, which are the mainstay of all food in Ecuador. El Criollo is located close to several tourist attractions of Quito, which makes it a great dining place to head to after a day's sightseeing.
