Delight fried plantains with coffee or “bolones” at breakfast and enjoy your favorite a la carte dishes at lunch or dinner. Such a dish is the “Ceviche”, a type of tomato, lime and onion cocktail that is usually served as either a starter or main dish. It is prepared by combining all the ingredients to create a type of soup that can be served, in some cases with rice, pop-corn, “tostado” (fried corn) and “chifles” (sliced fried banana), but if somebody wants to take risks, two or three drops of hot sauce can be a perfect complement!. Different kind of “Ceviche” can be served, fish, shrimp, octopus, scallops, lobster are some of the possible combinations to choose, this is the kind of food ideal for a relaxing time after a exhausted touring day. A special drink can make the difference to accompany this meal, a squeezed natural juice or a cold beer can give that flavor at your delicious “Ceviche”.
Ecuador, besides of having a permanent regional food exposition, available all the year, there are several Ecuadorian gastronomic fairs organized in order to exhibit their main products, traditional meals, farm-made food, candies and so on. Fairs are organized on special dates by the government of each city in Ecuador and private business. In Guayaquil, for example, on July it is prepared an important gastronomic exposition where you can find typical gastronomic degustation and samples of organic products. This event is organized by the government of Guayaquil by its “July Celebrations” or “Fiestas Julianas” in Spanish, but this is not our main fair in Ecuador, imagine what the other cities have to offer, just point a date in the calendar and you will find a regional festivity to live.
