Chugchucara is a traditional Ecuadorian dish originating from the town of Latacunga. It can be found at street vendor stalls across Ecuador and at many specific chugchucara restaurants in Latacunga. It consists of a plate of fritada, mote, lapingachos and small other sides - usually salads, variations of corn and small cheese empanadas. It is a tasty dish but pretty fatty! The pictures below are from our first taste of the dish at Otavelo animal market.
