Two emigrant chefs -Spanish and Italian- triumph in Guayaquil. Their professionalism is such that you undoubtedly must make a reservation.
Spain versus Italy.
Interestingly, the international food on offer is led by two emigrant cooks who have made a space for themselves with their specialities amongst the Guayaquilean cuisine. On the one hand, for those nostalgic for Spanish cooking - including tortilla (Spanish omelette), pimientos morrones (roasted peppers), callos (tripe stew) and crema catalana (crème brulée)- go to the refuge that is la Tasca de Carlos. It has a family atmosphere and is recognizable for the Spanish tourist as much for its tapas as for its long wine list. Locals and foreigners speak highly of its menu and the service received so it is advisable to make a reservation. On the other hand, for the lovers of Italian cooking, there is Casa di Carlo, decorated in a marine theme with nets on the walls inside and a small fountains in the garden outside, perfect for a romantic dinner. With pasta of all kinds and pizza that is made with local products and cooked by an authentic Italian, you will surely not be disappointed.
