Foods of Ecuador!

Ensalada de camarones

Waterbury and its 'burbs are experiencing a recent increase in Ecuadorian immigration, so I thought I would post a few pics from my recent trip to Ecuador, where I did some work in Emergency Medicine. I didn't get to eat out nearly as much as I hoped to, but here are some highlights. I hope to find an Ecuadorian restaurant in CT soon!

If you can't find Ecuadorian food near you, you can always make your own! I suggest you visit one of my very favorite food blogs, which has loads of great Ecuadorian recipes and mouth-watering photos: http://laylita.com/recipes/

The food looks great. I am going to Ecuador soon for the first time. I have been living vicariously by making recipes that I have found on Laylita's website. I don't know how authentic they are, but they are delicious! I have eaten at the Ecuadorian Restaurants in Danbury and Bridgeport and I like them both.Have you tried them. They are not that far for you. See my blog at Ecuador Retirement Reality.com (According to two gringos on beach.)We are just at the "preparing for the move" stage in our adventure and I am trying to learn about blogging.
