After years of research we’ve carefully selected the best street food stands in Quito in the most unexpected and hole in the wall locations. This tour prizes taste over aesthetic or price and is sure to make you craving the recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. You’ll try exotic fruits and juices, seafood delicacies and the best local bites, made with fresh ingredients. We will finish the journey with a top chocolate, coffee and cocktail tasting. In addition to getting a real taste of Quito, you will explore the city’s back streets, downtown’s flea market and cool off beaten path architecture, street art and more. We will wander through the parts of Quito that are home to the locals that dwell here and we will eat the food that natives have been enjoying for decades. By the time the tour is finished, you will understand the magic that makes our town one of the tastiest cities in Latin America, while feeling the impact that street food has on how we have built our culture.
