C.A.C.T.U.S. - Restaurant Quito - Ecuador

In a neighborhood filled with pizzerias, Chinese restaurants and shawarma joints, C.A.C.T.U.S. serves authentic, honest-to-goodness Ecuadorian food. Specializing in the traditional cuisine of the Sierra's indigenous population, the restaurant cooks up delicious llapingachos, tasty trout, and a number of bean, corn, cuy and vegetable salads. The restaurant is tiny and the atmosphere is intimate, with groups of friends crowded around the small tables drinking beer and cocktails. On especially festive nights, the patrons have been known to engage in some traditional Otavalo-style dancing.
