Just a little Photo-Ode to probably what is one of the greatest “comidas típicas” (traditional foods) of the Americas, namely the highland regions of Ecuador —

“El llapingacho:” Fried mashed potato pancakes stuffed with cheese (Se me hace agua la boca!!! It makes my mouth water!!!)

A typical plate of Llapingacho is usually served with:

  • Chorizo o salchicha (pork sausage)
  • Fritada de chancho (fried pork)
  • Ensalada de lechuga y remolacha (salad of lettuce and beets)
  • Arroz blanco (white rice)
  • Huevo frito (fried egg)
  • Aguacate (avocado)
  • And of course, you can’t forget to add “el ají” (house salsa made from different chiles)

And you can get all that amazing deliciousness on any given day for about $2.50…Que bestia!
