Around the world, food trucks offer delicious meals at affordable prices. It’s no different in Quito, Ecuador where the food truck concept is gaining popularity every day. Mid-week, hordes of white-collar workers flock to buy lunch on the street. Evenings and weekends, it’s best to head to established food parks dotted around the city. Either way, check out your favorite food truck’s Facebook page to keep up with their latest location.
