La Esquina - Restaurant Cuenca - Ecuador

This upscale Argentine restaurant with funky d√©cor cooks up typical food from rural Argentina in traditional discos de arado (plow discs, similar to cast-iron skillets), as well as high-quality beef topped with chimichurri sauce. You can order plow disks full of mixed meat, mixed vegetables or cazuela espa√Īola (seafood, fish, potatoes, white wine and homemade tomato sauce), in addition to many other options. All of the these dishes come with a side of rice and salad. La Esquina is a great place to bring a date or your spouse, as most of the plow disk plates are prepared for two people to share, but they can be made for one person for a slightly higher cost. La Esquina also has an extensive wine list with over 18 different types, mostly Malbecs.
