Discover Quito's Huecas

Put on your Foodie hat for a day, and join the locals to enjoy the best kept culinary secrets in the center of Quito!

Ecuadorian cuisine is characterised by its authentic family recipes; recipes with culinary secrets passed down through many generations. At present, the most traditional foods of each region of the country are found in "las huecas" (english: the hideaways) of the different towns and cities. The "Huecas" are small spaces or places that keep the best culinary treasures of Ecuador and are only known by local foodies, and travelers who dedicate their time to investigating the corners with the richest national specialties.

During this 3 hour tour, you will walk through the historic center of the city, discovering several of the best hideaways to taste desserts such as Quimbolito - a wrap of sweet milk and cheese, as well as traditional drinks such as Ponche - a specialty drink with rum and eggs, or one of the most desirable treats in the sierra region, the mote con chicharrón.

This is a great opportunity to discover the best culinary treasures found in the beautiful capital of Ecuador.
