The neighborhood of La Floresta maintains a residential air despite being bordered by some of the busiest parts of the city. People head to La Floresta for food – the streets near the Swissotel are packed with trendy restaurants, especially along Isabela Catolica. The main plaza of La Floresta fills each evening with food carts offering local specialties and is one of the best places to eat street food in Quito. A new concept, a food truck plaza, has opened just down the street. And every Friday, there is a great farmer’s market on Calle Galavis.
