Hidden gems in Centro Historico Quito - CENTRO CULTURAL METROPOLITANO and restaurant DIOSOLOPAY. December 2014.

I was in Centro Historico recently and was looking for the place to have lunch. My requirements were: nice atmosphere, good service and less than $10 "menu del dia". I checked out my favorite pizza place (Pizza SA) and had an unpleasant surprise - the prices for  individual size pizza now ranging in between $11.50 and $16!!! Used to be $9.99 for "The Works" Individual Pizza!

Then I remembered cute cafe at the CENTRO CULTURAL METROPOLITANO and it was a hit!  DIOSOLOPAY (that's the name of this establishment) has indoor and outdoor sitting, price for "menu del dia" was $6.10 (as of December 2014). I liked everything about this restaurant: the quality and presentation of food, the price, the service and ambiance. The customers were local people mostly, this place is truly "hidden from tourists" gem waiting to be discovered!
