"ALMUERZO DEL DIA" Quito Restaurant Tip by swesn

Quito Restaurants: 172 reviews and 330 photos

'Almuerzo del dia' means 'Lunch of the day'.

These are fixed-price lunches, usually between US$1 to US$1.50, that are available in markets and small local restaurants.

The lunch includes soup, a main course of rice and meat, dessert and a cup of drink like juice or syrup of some sort (possibly mixed with questionable water). Usually, the meat is not of good quality, and the menu is preselected. Well, it fills the tummy, that's the most important for budget-conscious.

Price Comparison: least expensive
Price: less than US$10
