It was girls’ night out with my 12 year old. 7 pm dinner reservations were set for 2 people at Nano. Nano is a cozy restaurant on the West Side of Midtown Manhattan. It comfortably seats about 15 diners. The restaurant hosts a delightful menu filled with Ecuadorian dishes. Nano is intimately set with popular Latin tunes softly playing in the background.
At dinner, I enjoyed a strawberry flavored soda native to Ecuador called Tropical. It’s very sweet. Rain compared it to Champagne Kola, which is a pretty accurate comparison. I dined on a plate of fried pork chunks and mashed yucca. Rain had yellow rice with a mix of scrambled egg, pork chunks, chicken chunks, shrimp, and calamari. Dessert at Nano was a warm and moist chocolate cupcake. The cupcake was small in size, but the taste was grand as it is frosted with a sweetened, creamed banana. You can taste the freshness and authenticity in every bite.
