"SECO DE CHIVO" Quito Restaurant Tip by swesn

Quito Restaurants: 172 reviews and 330 photos

Apparently, for the Ecuadoreans, their main meal is lunch, rather than dinner as in Western cultures. At times, it might be only main dish in their diet.

Do try 'seco de chivo'. You will find that lunch menus which are very economical and good, usually offer a few selections for the main dish and 'seco de chivo' is often an option.

While 'seco' means 'dry', this dish is actually a type of stew made from goat. Yum.
