Los Morochos de la Gata

Ecuadorian in Ambato

A great place to sample an Ambato specialty, a kind of porridge-like milky drink made with the morocho grain, which is ground with spices, soaked in water then boiled with milk and sugar. Try it with humitas (ground corn with onions and eggs, cooked in the husk) or quimbolitos (a kind of sweet, steamed pudding).
