  apanada and seco (schnitzel & stew)
by richiecdisc

After our $32 extravaganza at Familiar William, we decided to check out the place across the road called Servi Sabrason. It was always packed and they had a big picture menu with very reasonable prices prominently displayed right up by their sign. They had many Ecuadorian standards and we ate here a number of times. Most of the seating was outside with a communal feel. It was so busy you generally had to share one of the big tables. The service was much better than at Williams and the owner was very hands on and hospitable.

Favorite Dish: One meal I enjoyed was a huge apanada ($6) or schnitzel. It's a flattened beefsteak, breaded and fried. You squeeze a little lime on it and along with the sides of salad and fries, it's quite filling! My wife had a seco de pollo (chicken stew, $3.50) with rice. Big bottles of beer were the typical $2 but they also had great batidos (fruit shakes) for $1.50 which were big with a nice variety of fruits to choose from. Guanbana was our favorite. I also tried the churrassco ($6), another huge steak but this time cooked on the grill and topped with a fried egg. It was easy to understand the place's popularity. We ate here for under $15 for the two of us including the fruit shake deserts.
