"CHOCOLATE CON QUESO" Quito Restaurant Tip by swesn

Quito Restaurants: 172 reviews and 330 photos

A typical Ecuadorean drink, my friend told me, is chocolate con queso (hot chocolate with cheese).

Imagine a tall glass of hot chocolate with melting cheese inside. But not just any cheese, I was told. As my cheese knowledge is very limited, I am not able to tell you how to prepare this drink yourself.

But there is a cafe in Palacio Arzobispal where my friend brought me to which served this. I assume many other cafes do the same.
