Ecuador Food Prices


Ecuador food prices are low.

There is a lot more to Ecuador food than just the low price.

Ecuador food is not anything like Northern Latin food.  Beans & rice … tacos… tortillas… enchiladas… burritos etc. are NOT the typical food.

Here is a typical Al Muertzo (lunch of the day) at Meson de las Flores… beef stuffed cabbage… fresh vegetables and potato pancakes.

Plus the people put such great energy in the production… the growing… the selling at the market and the cooking.  The Ecuadorian people are warm and friendly Every step in the process.

Merri and I love to get in the kitchen with the staff and cook.  Merri is a great cook and the staff are kind so they tolerate me!

Low price is not everything when it comes to food.  Quality, freshness and ripeness…plus the way it is grown, prepared and served all count. in Ecuador you can get all the above at a price that is easy on the pocketbook.
