Mi Patria, loosely translated as 'my patriot' or 'my country,' represents the Ecuadorian homeland extremely well. The cuisine is richly represented and delicious. The empanadas are an absolute must, just for the rich scents wafting out of the meat-filled pockets alone. And they taste even better than they smell. Also on the menu you'll see plantains, seafood, roasted and lean pulled pork, toasted corn and much more. For a sweet finale, try the coconut fried banana dessert served with ice cream.
