Encebollado
Posted by: HoboSylvain | 2015-04-06 18:25:10 | Cuenca, Azuay, Ecuador
Keywords: soup
Throughout Ecuador, you'll encounter "encebollados", which translates as "made with onions". It's a soup with onions of course, yuca and fish (usually tuna). That's a great start. But then come the toppings. Depending on the restaurant, you'll get grilled corn grains (as in the picture), fried sliced bananas (called 'chifles'), popcorn... or a mix of these three! The toppings are then put in the soup by you and you eat them as if they were cooked with the soup. That adds a whole new texture profile to the soup. :-) You can get this hearty soup almost everywhere, for a price ranging from US$1 to US$2.50, depending on the size of the serving.

Nope, sorry... but they eat lots of soups in both Ecuador and Colombia. Generally, it's better in Colombia, except for the two especialities here... the encebollado and the fanesca.
