A look at Ecuador through Food!

Food is the best.  It’s exciting, delicious, and adventurous if you choose the right thing.  While I was in Ecuador, I got to try weird things, well weird for me.  This included llama, guinea pig, and cow skin soup.  It was all delicious, but the soup was a little weird, think soggy gummy bears in broth.  odd.

Food is a great way to experience a different culture.  It lets you see how they live and allows for great and exciting stories as well.  Not only is it exciting, but it opens your eyes to delicious food that you may have never been able to try back home.

Aji and fresh fruit juice, so good!  Fruit juice is a part of every meal and a refreshing addition to the rice also at every meal, still delicious!  Here’s a look at some of the food of Ecuador.


Who doesn’t like ice cream?  I’ll leave it at that.


Guinea Pig

The whole thing.  They breed them to eat, I’m pretty sure that’s why they’re so giant.  It was actually really good.  Like a lot of things, it was like chicken.


Figs and Cheese

We had these for dessert.  I wasn’t a huge fan, but it’s worth a try.


Cow Skin Soup

This was weird.  It tasted fine, but the pieces of cow skin were, uhh, different.  They almost felt soggy.



This is a salsa-type condiment that goes on everything.  Sometimes it’s spicy, other times more mild.  It.  Is.  Heavenly.



The ones we had were filled with cheese, and super delicious.  Ecuador has pretty great food.



Ours came with rice, fried plantain, and guacamole.  I’m not sure how common this is, but we had it in a small village.
