I stayed in Quito for about two weeks and did several day tours to the Laguna Quilotoa, the Otavalo Market, Mindo and a biking tour to the Cotopaxi with Gulliver Expeditions which I really enjoyed. The guides were professional and very nice! Afterwards I also decided to do a jungle tour with them to the Samona Lodge one of the best experiences ever! I can highly recommend them:)
Uncle Ho's is a small Vietnamese restaurant tucked away on a quiet street off the busy square in the middle of the tourist district of Quito.
Locals call it home and for good reason. You won't find better food such as Pho and traditional Vietnamese dishes anywhere else in South America.
The Irish expat owner makes sure that no one leaves without having some fun and keeps his regulars happy with music, movie, and sports nights complete with drink specials nightly. If you're travelling in Ecuador make sure you visit Uncle Ho's before heading out to the Galapagos or jungle.

If you need a rest from refried beans and are willing to break the backpacker budget for the day, here are two tips on places to eat in Quito's new town which will satisfy any cravings for a taste of home. Start with lunch at Super Papa which serves tasty jacket potatoes with any filling imaginable. In the evening feast on traditional fish and chips in the cosy and authentic Queen Victoria British pub.
