Street Food In Quito, Ecuador

by Roni

Do you eat street food when you travel? I love food and it doesn’t matter if it comes from a 5 star restaurant or a street vendor, I just want it to be delicious. This food right here? Boy oh boy. It was scrumptious. And guess what? Each stick was $1.50. I was in Quito with Kristine, we have been friends for over 20 years and this was our first time traveling together. We both have similar interests and tastes so we both were basically salivating over these meat sticks.

We were walking in a park and just happened to see this man selling food. We noticed it because it smelled really good and there were lots of people waiting in line. The wait was totally worth it and because I normally travel with my hand wipes, we were prepared for our impromptu meal.

When I travel I like to live like the locals do and since it was totally normal to eat off the food stands, I did the same. When you travel, it’s better to have an open mind and try and experience some of the same things as the people around you.

Would you have eaten one of these meat sticks?

That does look good! I love to eat where the locals do whenever we travel…the touristy spots are never as good!
