Dining in the Forest
Lodge's towering, two-story Dining Room
offers a dramatic
setting for a lively gourmet experience. Here, Mashpi's
chefs draw from the diversity of Ecuadorian
cuisine and ingredients, making the most of its location
between the coast and the Andes: the best of both worlds.
Dishes are conjured
with herbs, spices and plants from the surrounding
rainforest, as well as from delicious regional ingredients
such as a vast array of tropical and temperate fruits
(think papaya, watermelon, pineapple, mango, naranjilla,
guanabana, blackberry, apple, peaches...) and palm heart,
coffee, manioc, chocolate and plantain.
A full bar offers
specialty fruit cocktails and natural energetic drinks.
A carefully-selected wine list features mainly Chilean and
single-source, organic Ecuadorian chocolate is a feature
of Mashpi's gourmet experience.
