Anyone who can afford this tour isn't closely connected to the world it explores. The taste-bud pleasing samples of Ecuadoran and other Latin American cuisine are paired with the story of the people who support entire families - and help bring others here - on homemade delights they sell for a dollar to two.
Your escort/guide/sociologist/philosopher Jeff makes the tour enlightening and not even a little intimidating - no judging! The streets become alive at night, and for our group the liveliness was accompanied by welcoming and friendliness - think of being invited into a family kitchen on a sidewalk, albeit a kitchen with the entire neighborhood wandering in and out.
For a guaranteed full tummy and a smiling face, and enough food for thought to last a while, this is not to be missed.
