  1. Cool that the first one comes from Ecuador. My wife is from Ecuador. Her father would hate the second plant that comes from Peru. Some Ecuadorians still feel like they’re at war with Peru. Although my wife and I both agree that for the most part Peruvian food tends to be better than Ecuadorian food.
