Surf Shak - Restaurant Canoa - Ecuador

If a big, juicy, American-style burger and steak fries is what you’re craving, look no further than Surf Shak. Co-owned by three friendly Americans and a Dutchman, the restaurant offers some classics very few others have been able to successfully accomplish on this side of the equator. On a street lined with seafood restaurants facing the beach, this joint full of English-speaking staff can provide a nice break to someone looking for a bit of American fare. In addition to its thick burgers, Surf Shak also offers a delicious assortment of pizzas served hot from the oven. A variety of board games keep visitors entertained as they wait for food and happy hour, which lasts from 6-8 p.m. every night, and 4-8 p.m. on Fridays. Trivia Night on Thursdays at 8:30 mustn't be missed. And lo' and behold dear traveler, this place is the only one (within miles, quite possibly) that serves pretty good IPA Beer!

In the morning before the surf breaks, grab your laptop and stop by the Surf Shak to check your email with their free WiFi. American-style breakfasts like pancakes, French toast, and eggs with hash browns can be enjoyed with a cup of delicious French-press coffee for a wonderful start to your day.
