Going to be in Quito a month from now, so I need some info on places to dig, where to eat, places to visit, you know the usual stuff. Any help is appreciated.

P.S. I can help you with diggin' in PR if you want.

    all around plaza sanfrancisco there are storesand mercado arenas is an open air market with people selling
    i ve just been there though so good luck ;) (props to musica for the hookup)

    to eat you need to go to mercado central and hit up don jimmy's for the corvina
    huge piece of fried fish, nice rice/vegetables, and a sick ceviche entr??e (shrimp,mussels)
    near plaza san blas also hookup a fritada near there
    ridiculously delicious fried pork
    san augustin for natural juice churned ice cream
    jugos sucre for fresh juice every morning
    caf?? niza for breakfast
    and your good

  • Thanks for the info!

  • bumpin' this just to see if anyone else has some good info before I leave tomorrow.

  • Check out the Anthony Bourdain No Reservations episode on Ecuador. No record shop info, but plenty of great restaurants. It's on Netflix Instant View.

  • Quito's cool. Get out of the city and check some of the volcanos.
