San Agustín

Ecuadorian in Quito

Kitschy religious icons and old-fashioned radios decorate this old-school classic serving Ecuadorian fare to bustling workday crowds. Opt for first-rate seco de chivo (goat stew), corvina (sea bass) or arroz marinero (seafood rice) – there are so many options the menu takes an age to peruse. Follow these up with old-fashioned helados de paila: ice cream handmade in big copper bowls.

Go for a guagua (small) portion if you cannot manage the generously sized platters.
