El Palacio de la Fritada


Typical Ecuadorian

What started in 1972 as a small eatery is today one of the most renowned typical food restaurants, not only in Quito, but in the country. To have lunch at El Palacio de la Fritada, or The 'Fritada' Palace, is a popular weekend plan for Quiteños, a fact that is a great recommendation for the place.

Their authentic 'fritadas', 'locros', 'secos', 'tortillas' , 'empanadas' , 'tostados', and soups are ideal for a quick lunch or for dinner.

They have a cafe-style system, where you order and pay at arrival and are served afterwards.

If you are in Cumbayá, don't miss this opportunity to try the genuine typical Ecuadorian food, and if you are not, take the trip, it's well worth it!
