Fritada dish (fried pork) see first picture above
I Have to tell you that the best fried pork I have ever eaten was in Cuenca almost in the middle of Ecuador.
a pork dish made by cooking chunks of pork in large pans with water until the water has been consumed and the pork is left to cook itself in its own fat. The results are delicious pieces of pork that are crispy and golden on the outside while juicy and tender inside.
Fritada is served with side dishes including mote (hominy corn),fried ripe plantains, tomato and onion curtido sauce, aji or freshly made hot sauce, maíz tostado or cancha corn nuts, and more.
Gallinas de pinllo dish, ( known as Pinllo hens) Ambato
I’m Kind of tired of eating chicken but if you are a chicken lover you have to try this Pinllo hens dish .
This Hens dish is a typical dish that rescues the tradition giving customers in general the rich flavor of the food prepared in a wood oven served with potatoes with a peanut sauces.
And the best area to eat this delicious dish is in Ambato ;D
A corviche is a cross between a fried dumpling, a fritter, and fish cake. The dough is made from green plantains and it has a fish filling –usually corvina fish from which it gets its name. Corviches are usually sold at the beach and are especially popular in the coastal province of Esmeralda They are served with tomato and onion sauce, but the sauce you see in the picture is made by cabbage and carrots
Mote Pillo ( Ecuadorian hominy corn and egg scramble)
This dish is also an other one of my favourite because it has hominy corn , and it comes with Morcilla is a blood sausage! I love its taste and the blend of spices they use in it and pork and a delicious salsa with onions , tomatoes and avocado the best place to eat this dish have to be in Cuenca.
