Royale with Cheese

From Pulp Fiction:

Vincent: It’s the little differences. I mean, they got the same shit over there that we got here, but it’s just…it’s just, there it’s a little different.
Jules: Example?
Vincent: All right. Well, you can walk into a movie theater in Amsterdam and buy a beer. And I don’t mean just like in no paper cup; I’m talking about a glass of beer. And in Paris, you can buy a beer at McDonald’s. And you know what they call a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in Paris?
Jules: They don’t call it a Quarter Pounder with Cheese?
Vincent: Nah, man, they got the metric system. They wouldn’t know what the fuck a Quarter Pounder is.
Jules: What do they call it?
Vincent: They call it a “Royale with Cheese.”

One of the major reasons I relocated to Ecuador was to experience new things, and Ecuador sure delivers!

I’ve fallen in love with the neighborhood Almuerzos (small restaurants primarily serving stews and soups during the midday), and love visiting the local tiendas for day-to-day shopping.  One of the most amazing things to me is how fresh and delicious the food tastes – veggies are crisp and sweet, the Chancho (pit-roasted pork) is tender, and there is a never-ending stream of streetside treats to enjoy.  It’s a good thing I mostly walk here, or I would blow up like a balloon 😉
