Loja Restaurants

follow us

Loja does not have a whole lot of variety when it comes to restaurants. Most serve typical Lojano snacks, including tamales, humitas, quimbolitos and empanadas de verde. The good news is that restaurants offering cheap fixed-priced almuerzos (lunches) during the week are on nearly every corner, so you won't have to spend much to fill up at lunchtime. Head to the sector "El Valle" to sample some local cuisine, including cuy asado (grilled guinea pig), cecina (pieces of pork dried in the sun then grilled), aguado de gallina (a traditional chicken and rice soup with potatoes and onions) and repe (a traditional creamy soup made with green plantains and cheese). One recommended place to eat there is Salón Lola (Salvador Bustamente Celí and Guayaquil. Tel: 07-257-5603). Taxis to "El Valle" cost $1 from downtown.
