Recommendation for Ambrosia, unique gift shop

To start collecting gifts for a trip to the US I was looking for exclusive Ecuadorian made items. A friend recommended a unique store named Ambrosia.

There I found a variety of Ecuadorian products most of which are healthy: different types of food grade oils (avocado, coconut, cacao), gluten free products, delicious organic coffee and chocolate. A wide variety of sealed edibles such as honey, marmalades, aji, tuna, coconut sugar and different types of flour are sold.

For souvenirs or local gift giving there are alpaca scarves and shawls, fashionable shoes, Ecuadorian artist’s music, artisanal made soaps and lotions, and aromatherapy oils.

They also offer gift baskets for special occasions such as birthdays, holidays, etc. 

Ambrosia is located at Simon Bolivar 13-86 and Estevez de Toral; if you have any questions you can email:
