La Cazuela Restaurant

I took my Fiance to La Cazuela (an Ecuadorian restaurant) because I've seen such glowing reviews here from so many folks. La Cazuela did not disappoint us. We had appetizers - a shish kebob with onions, peppers, sausage and beef that was grilled and had a sauce that was just fantastic. We also had empanadas as an appetizer - they were good too. My Fiance had the beef, eggs, avocado, rice, tomato and french fries as her entree - it was excellent. I had a dish which was sort of like a stew (I thought the Waiter called it a casserole?) that had mussels, clams, calamari with lime that I put over white rice. It was quite good as well. The check came to only $44 which was money well spent. We will definitely go back again.

    Glad you enjoyed it. I think it's one of the real chowhound finds in Baltimore. Your girlfriend had Churrasco— Beef, eggs, avocado, rice, tomatoes and French fries. I'm not sure what your dish is called; don't see it on the menu, but I've had it before and I agree it's delicious.

    BTW, here's the menu. http://www.gabirecords.com/lacazuelam...

      Al restaurante La Cazuela, le faltan cazuelas. El restaurante ofrece un plato llamado cazuelazo (y algo mas), pero no es una cazuela o nada parecido. El cazuelazo es pescado frito con camarones, arroz y platano frito. Honestamente, le falta sabor o el tipico sabor ecuatoriano. Mi familia pidio el tan deseado encebollado, pero de encebollado no tenia nada. El caldo no tenia nada de sabor a pescado. La decepcion fue tanta que ya no pidieron nada de comer. Mi decepcion con mi order fue tal, que quize tratar la guatita, y tambien fue decepcionante. Pero, si desean unas buenas empanadas de viento o de verde, les recomendamos el lugar. El maduro con queso tambien estuvo delicioso. Mi familia es original de Guayaquil, Ecuador y yo soy de Puerto Rico. Nuestra visita fue debut y despedida. El menu se leia fabuloso y encantador, lamentablemente la comida estaba escaza de sabor.

      Sinceramente,

      La Familia Decepcionada

      I believe cazuela is Spanish for casserole.
