Cafeteria Carmita - Restaurant Quito - Ecuador

A cafeteria you could easily walk by without a second glance, Cafetería Carmita has a little more than meets the eye, but not much. For one, it has been around for over 30 years. It seems older, with fading photos of Quito and Guayaquil from the early part of the 20th century. It also features traditional dishes and desserts from around Ecuador at reasonable prices. The hygiene of the food is questionable, but its definitely authentic.

For a very traditional platter of mote (white Andean corn) with your choice of meat, pillo (lard) or chicharron (fried pork skin), this is the spot for you. There are also Chilean empanadas with either chicken or meat and sandwiches all for right around $1. The food isn't delicious, but it is cheap.
