  we found out why snacking in Quito is popular!
by richiecdisc

It pays to keep your eyes open even when riding on the bus. D was dying for a fruit salad before we left Ecuador and we hadn’t really seen a good one since we’d left Cuenca weeks earlier. I saw this place from the bus and made a mental note of where it was. It was just a little place across from the market but it looked promising and we were happy to find it very full of locals especially policemen enjoying their wares.

Favorite Dish: D had a nice big fruit salad for a dollar and I had a huge guanbanana batido (a fruit milk shake) for sixty cents. We went back the next day for the same thing! Now, we understood why snacking was so popular in Quito!
