Ecuadorean cuisine @ La Humita

La Humita "was founded in 2003 by Nestor, Ulpiano and Luis Correa. The Correa brothers are three Ecuadorians that came to the United States with a dream to provide a better life for themselves and their family. They discovered that through hard work and dedication this country afforded them many opportunities. They quickly adapted to this land's customs and traditions, but always maintained their Ecuadorian customs. Something that all three siblings missed from their native Ecuador was the cuisine. During the early nineties it was difficult to find good Latin food, as there were only a handful of South American restaurants in the Chicago area. The Correas began by opening a restaurant, which served a few typical Ecuadorian dishes. Slowly, they introduced more dishes to the menu. Soon, their selection of appetizers, entrees, desserts and drinks was extensive. Nowadays, La Humita presents their customers with a wide variety of the most exotic and authentic Ecuadorian cuisine. For the past four years, the restaurant has dedicated itself to excellence in the culinary arts."

Stay for live music at the adjoining El Balcon afterwards.

A reservation under Supper Club has been made.

    I gave it fours stars only because the server kept forgetting about me, even though she would take my order first. Otherwise the place is nice.

    I just got promoted to Honorary Co-conspirator... yahoo!!! Bringing a bottle of vino to celebrate Sadly, Ecuador is not known for its wine so I'll bring a Chilean one. I'm planning on staying for the live music after party. :-)
