Food on this trip can be divided into two parts – mainland food and seafood. Similar to Peruvian food, the mainland food was very potato based (which made me very happy!). We didn’t have a lot of time on the mainland, but I really enjoyed the food that we were able to try. There was one restaurant near Otavalo that provided one of my favorite meals. Betty and her lovely family took us to one of their favorite places to eat where we ordered a big combination meal so that we could all try a little of everything. Several kinds of boiled potatoes and other legumes, oversized corn kernels, and delicious roasted pork arrived to the table on a huge tray. Delicious!
The food on the ship had a more international flare, and never disappointed! From Octopus to steak, and Halibut to lasagna, everything that came out of the ship's kitchen was simply amazing! I would have never believed that such high quality food would be offered on a relatively small ship.
