Street vendors in Quito sell authentic, delicious and cheap food. These are often recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation, and each vendor’s dish will be completely different. Be sure to try llapingacho: a potato omelette topped with fried egg, avocado, salad, chorizo and salsa. If you want something a bit lighter, how about green mango with salt? An under-ripe mango served with lime juice and salt, this dish sounds like it shouldn’t work but really does. This will be your new favourite meal if you’re a lover of sour sweets.
The Weather in Quito
The temperature stays the same in Quito year-round because its positioning between the mountains creates a microclimate. No matter what time of year you visit, the temperature will always be cool. The only thing that really changes is the amount of rainfall. The driest months are June, July and August when there’s very little chance of rain. The wettest time of year is between March and May when it can rain about 20 days out of the month.
