“Traditions & Awesome Gastronomy of Quito”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Food is food wherever you go. However, certain places can capture the essence of not only what food is, but what it meand in the local culture. Thus, gastronomy allows you to culturally understand the actual fabric of a destination. Casa Gangotena's Restaurant offers you the essence of Quito, and thus the essence of Ecuador. Highly recommended: any dish including shrimp, beef, potatoes, fish, and highland vegetables. Delicious!
