Encebollado is a popular dish from Ecuador. While it originates from the coast, it is popular around the whole country due to restaurants featuring the region's cuisine. It is a type of soup made of albacora (a type of tuna), yuca (cassava), tomatoes and onions and generally sprinkled with lemon juice. Served with popcorns and platano chips (Ecuadorian type of Banana). USD 1.50

Mitad del Mundo is very touristy, the only square is full of souvenir shops and restaurants. But still a nice place to hang around. Provided the weather is as good as this day FuFu had!

Mother of Fabricio was worrying about me because i went back home after 8pm. Lost or something bad happened on me. Well, she said it's not very safe to go back so late. And i didnt tell them what time i would be back. They were waiting me for the dinner. Once after i had washed my hands, my dinner was served on the table. Platano meatball soup! Yummy!!!

Platano : not banana but cousin of banana. Can only be found in Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and some other Latin American countries.
