Date Night in Ecuador

Loading...
Ecuador has an amazing variety of ingredients, from tropical fruits to root vegetables, reflecting the extraordinary diversity of its geography and climate. We start this meal with an Ecuadorian coastal favourite, refreshing citrus-marinated prawn ceviche complemented by a delicious tomato chilli sauce called aji de tomate. For the main we head to the highlands with pork cooked in annatto oil and spices, served with a variety of traditional accompaniments: potato cakes called llapingachos, pickled onions and avocado. Finally, we’ve got figs in a dark sugar syrup (dulce de higos in Spanish) which are traditionally served with fresh cheese, ricotta being the best substitute you can find here.
