Fun Food Friday — Lunch in Quito


Diosolopay Restaurant, Metropolitan Cultural Center

After a long stint watching the Changing of the Guard at the Carondelet Palace it was time for a lunch break. We headed across the street from the Cathedral to the Metropolitan Cultural Center and a nice al fresco dining experience there in the courtyard. The restaurant here is called Diosolopay, and it’s well worth the experience.

Our meals here were inspired by Ecuadorian culinary tradition, but were not constrained by it. Simply exquisite. Yes, it was as good as it looks:
