When we were here in Cuenca in December 2012, we enjoyed this restaurant near the Old Cathedral near Parque Calderon. Have you ever had a dish in a restaurant that really stood out, so that you’re thinking “I would really like to try that again”? Raymipampa serves typical Ecuadorian food, including this shrimp omelet. I just love it. Simple, plain, tasty and perfectly prepared.
You might think that all we’ve been doing is dining out, but we’ve been walking…a lot! Ken was a bit taken back when he realized that last Tuesday and Wednesday we averaged 20,000 steps daily. But we got a lot done. We had Larry, an ex pat from Idaho, help us set up our computer/Roku/VPN land line, and we got Direct TV to move the cable connection from the media room. Jose worked with Puntonet, the Internet provider, to get the speed up to what our landlord is paying for. He was here until almost 8 PM on Friday, but we got it done.
So we’re connected…and more!
Surprising discovery on a Sunday Evening. La Fornace has five locations (four in Cuenca), this place is conveniently located just around the corner from Parque de Calderone.
This location is Borrero 8-29 y Sucre. Our waiter Rennigio is friendly, professional, and he poured Ken’s beer like a trained Austrian bartender, “do you want it “pure”, or “how many fingers?” (translation: how tall a head would you like?)
