Gastronomy of Canton Chone

Banana tortillas from Chone.

It is a type of gastronomy from Manabi and Chonera that has perhaps experienced a creativity of the variation of Creole food with respect to plantain or Verde as a nutritional element based on the diet of Ecuadorians. The Banana cake should be thick, not too watered down and should be the soft dough because it has to absorb the elements that will be applied to the grated banana

The Banana or Green Bowls

There are 2 kinds of Balls: Banana Ball cooked in water and the Banana Ball roasted in the oven. Las Bollas or Bolones are a kind of banana dough that has simple ingredients in its preparation and have a specific flavor since it is almost the same to prepare the banana sewn or roasted; only that this last type of preparation is more complicated and of long time, while the first one is faster.

Ripe or Banana with Salprieta

The Salprieta is a type of striped peanuts when it has already been roasted in the oven at high temperatures in a process mostly known by montubios, since in Chone it can be purchased directly from stores and supermarkets. The peanut is scratched or crushed in a very simple way with a mallet or a mill and it is poured salt at its point and taste, then it is refined by another process of crushing and merging with achiote; Once this procedure is done, it is mixed with chopped cilantro leaves; then the peanut betrays a very light flavor, soft and sometimes greasy.

Chonero Cheese

It is a type of cheese unique in the province and the country is well known nationwide for its freshness, flaccidity, brightness, salty taste and color. This cheese has therefore a very short life span, and can be differentiated into two classes

Chicken soup

It is called in Creole chicken chone to the species of this bird that is raised with food typical of the field such as banana, seeds, rice, corn, plants, etc. that is to say, natural and spontaneously bred to the circumstance of the field, since its flavor is unique, since Creole chicken meat is hard, assimilates the condiments quickly and delays softening its structure to be eaten by the consumer.

The Viche Chonero.

It is a traditional dish of Ecuadorian cuisine montubia whose combination fuses diversity of vegetables and seafood in its preparation and although its origin is not well determined it is often said that the viche is authentically native to the center and south of the province of Manabí. The truth is that its name derives from the last two syllables of the word ceviche because some ingredients of this dish are related, such as seafood and lemon, which also leads to its preparation.

Review Information

Galapagos Islands

Extraordinary flora and fauna, a place you must visit...!

Galapagos Islands are worldwide known for their wide biodiversity and for being the point from where Charles Darwin developed the theory of evolution.We present you 5 facts that perhaps you didn't know about the Enchanted Islands.

The term "Enchanted islands" first appeared on a map in 1589.Sailors nicknamed thus to the Galapagos Islands, by referring to these "appeared and disappeared", since due to the sea currents strong, access to the Islands was limited at certain times of the year. The nickname transcended over the years and today is still saying that the Islands are "delighted", but referring now to the great biodiversity of flora and fauna.

The Galapagos marine iguana, is the only species of reptile in the world that has managed to adapt to life under water.

The Islands are named for the giant tortoises that live there (the Galapagos word meaning turtle). This species can reach up to 16 hours a day to sleep and mainly feeds on cacti that grow there.

In keeping with the turtles, originally there were 15 species of giant tortoises in the Galapagos, unfortunately 5 of them are completely extinct, so there are only 10. The main threat of the turtles is the human being, who for years has been dedicated to hunting them for their meat and oil.

The Galapagos Islands were part of the second world war! During this war, the Government of Ecuador allowed the United States Government build a runway with strategic aims in the Islands.When the war ended, the Americans abandoned the place. That track currently serves as the main airport of the Islands, which welcomes the year thousands of passengers.
