Quito is characterized by being the first World Cultural Heritage City by UNESCO for its spectacular preservation of Colonial Architecture and its past---residing in the midst of the modern. But Quito hides many things including the flavors and aromas of one of the oldest traditions of its ancestors. These flavors and aromas haunt the most special and spectacular corners of this wonderful city. The tradition of sweet gastronomic delight welcomes even the most casual visitor. Many of these shops are known to locals, but are far off the “tourist track.” We know about them, we’ve shopped them for years, and now, you can learn about them, too.
