Our friends Leigh and Rick took me into Manta with them yesterday. We told stories, laughed having a great time. We had breakfast at a local restaurant with Angie and Raphael, the restaurant served Llapingachos – but not with potato – with yuca, they have a different name which I failed to catch. They also serve the traditional Ecuadorian breakfast meals from Chicken and Rice to Encebollado which is a soup of Albacore Tuna with onions as well as over-easy eggs. My kind of place. I love encebollado but had to have the over-easy eggs with the llapingachos and a café con leche.
Of course we had to take a few of the llapingachos to go. They are now in the freezer waiting for the perfect day to bring them out for another feast.
We then went out to lunch, fish ceviche, excellent.
It was a laughter filled busy day, thanks Leigh and Rick for such a fun day.
