Lindblad National Geographic Endeavour Tuesday Menus

 

Galapagos cruise food

The Lindblad National Geographic Endeavour’s Ecuadorian lunch buffet is perhaps the most colorful and flavorful of all the buffets. If you want to photograph the different dishes, be the first in line. And shoot quickly because many of the first at lunch are ready for the meal to be a feeding frenzy.  (The dinner crowd is more mellow.)

One of lunch items, mote pillo, is unusual and deserves an explanation: Mote is the Ecuadorian word for hominy, made from white corn kernels. commonly found throughout the Andes, where hominy is a staple. Mote pillo is said to have originated in Andean city of Cuenca, whose city center is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Trust site due to its many historical buildings. Mote pillo by itself can be served for breakfast or, for here at this lunch, as a side dish.

 Roast suckling pig is a common offering in the Andean highlands of Ecuador. The crackling, (the crisp and tasty roasted skin) is highly prized by Ecuadorians and tourists. It is one of the first things to disappear. Oh, so good!

Wahoo is a hard-fighting fish that every serious salt water angler wants to find and then dine on. Today is wahoo day, served at both lunch and dinner. Do it! The Endeavour chefs do a fine job.
