While working at a language school in Cuenca, I let my students pick the restaurant on an outing. Not a good idea, as the Ecuadorian concept of seasoning is pepper and the national snack is "salchipapas" (soggy french fries topped with a hot dog and smothered in ketchup and mayonnaise). The students loved this place, which being on a main tourist site (Parque Calderon) and in all the guide books, is nothing but a tourist trap. The food is the same bland, starchy fare you could find on any fixed price menu around town for a quarter of the price. The only difference is that you get more of it here. The final insult was that my students didn't offer to pick up my tab, which at $8.00 was steep for this kind of food. You are paying for a the location and nothing else. Service is efficient and no frills. Strictly for suckers.
