Alex, Vanesa and Natalie, opera night. voice, piano and violin

La Guarida is honored to present an outstanding and intimate musical event. We’ll have an afternoon / evening filled with arias and incredibly talented musicians. Alex Rodriguez, arguably Ecuador’s best baritone will join us with the incredible soprano Vanesa Regalado. They are accompanied by pianist, Natalie Rojas. They will bring us a magical evening of music – Alex will not only sing but will play the violin as well.

La Guarida’s acoustics are perfect pitch for this kind of musical experiences. Our capacity is very limited and your admission fee goes directly to the artists. The admission fee is $10 only.

We understand that you may catch Alex and Vanessa other places; however, in La Guarida you get incredible and healthy food. Plus, you don’t want to miss the incredibly talented Natalie Rojas as well who will play exclusively in La Guarida.

As an extra bonus, don’t forget that we are the number 1 rated restaurant in Trip Advisor and will prepare a special menu for this special evening.

Don’t be left out. Call 099 806 8071 for reservations and dinner (required).

We look forward to wowing you with the best Ecuador has to offer.

April 24th, from 5:30 PM to 7:45 PM, $10, Mariscal Lamar y Luis Pauta, Cuenca.

Temporary/permanent visas…100% guaranteed !!!

If you are filing for a temporary/permanent visa, I offer a 100% money back guarantee. That’s right. If I don’t get you your visa, you pay nothing. My name is Isabel Mosquera. I am an Ecuadorian, who studied and lived in Canada for many years. I have been a Visa Facilitator for over 7 years and have assisted more than two hundred and fifty Expats in obtaining their Visas, Temporary and Permanent, Cedulas, Translations, Health Insurance, housing and much more. These services are available as one fee package or individually. I own a car, so transportation is always included at no extra charge. I have always gotten my clients their Visas, even under the most difficult of circumstances, such as unreadable fingerprints for FBI reports.

Have you moved to Ecuador without the required documents? Don’t worry, I can help. I offer free consultations, either by telephone, email or in person. I am at the Immigration office on a very regular basis, so I am knowledgeable about all recent changes in the law and am happy to share my knowledge with you. I will be happy to provide you with references.

I look forward to serving you.

Double D’s menu for the week of April 26

Double D's
Double D’s

With the Kentucky Derby being run on Saturday, May 1, this menu is a celebration of The Run for the Roses.

The Hot Brown is a hot, smothered, open-faced turkey bacon sandwich made famous in the 1920s by Chef Fred Schmidt of The Brown Hotel in Louisville, KY. It’s now also synonymous with The Derby so we’ll bring it to you in casserole form. Our homemade bread will be topped with slow-roasted turkey, crumbled bacon, and fresh tomato. A rich cheese sauce is blanketed on top then it’s all baked until golden and bubbly.

If you attended idiomART’s Derby Party in 2019, you had the opportunity to taste our Pimento Cheese. The 2021 version will feature Luvimar’s exceptional Gouda. Shredded Gouda will be mixed with roasted red peppers, purple onion, and our own zesty “dressing.” Eat it right out of the container with crackers, vegetables, or a spoon or spread it between two pieces of bread then toast the sandwich in a skillet to have a next-level grilled cheese.

Our Derby Pie Bars will feature roasted pecans and chocolate baked into a soft filling atop our shortbread crust. Bourbon and mint take our vanilla cupcakes up a notch to Mint Julep Cupcakes. In addition to being baked into the cake, a bourbon-mint syrup is brushed on top after baking. A bourbon-mint icing finishes this delectable sweet.

Hot Brown Casserole: $30 (6-8servings); $23 (4-5 servings)
Gouda Pimento Cheese: $15/lb
Derby Pie Bars: $5/bar
Mint Julep Cupcakes: $3.50 each

Delicious dried fruit for sale

Ananá – dried fruits

Meet Ananá, a family company founded with the intent of challenging the way we snack. Today, so many of our fruit snacks push away from true natural flavors, using chemical preservatives and additives. Ananá, however, pulls those natural flavors in with an incredible dehydration process that emboldens and encapsulates the taste of fruit, without any need for chemicals.

Based in Cuenca city, a city that thrives at the crossroads of culture and nature, we are dedicated to promoting and inspiring a lifestyle of healthy eating with a product that is nutritious, simple and fun! From easy snacking, to aromatic cocktail infusions, our dried fruits have so many possibilities.

We currently offer a wide range of dried fruits, such as: pineapple, apple, banana, strawberry, kiwi, melon, and orange. We even offer seasonal fruits, such as mango and pitahaya. Our products are packaged in variety and come in 3 affordable sizes:

25gram package $1.50
80gram package $5
160gram package $8

We would love the opportunity to show you how our dried fruits can be an incredible alternative to your favorite fruit snacks.
