 DINING

In the Oriente's main cities (Tena, Francisco de Orellana and Tulcan] there are only a handful of restaurants. Menus are usually limited and international dishes are scarce...what better excuse for experimenting with local food and trying out some new flavours?!

The situation is a little different in tourist lodges. Most cook the same dish for all the guests, and meals are usually tasty and balanced. The starter is usually soup, followed by a main course (typically chicken or fish), and dessert. Menus are inventive and dishes are filling considering the fact the most of the food is flown in from Quito. You probably won't have to eat the local animals, but ingredients from the forest include green banana or plaintain [roasted or fried], and yucca.

See cities & towns for more information about where to eat within each town.
