Ecuador – 2022
When looking for Ecuador World Cup fans in Toronto this year, I was elated to see that the very same restaurant I visited in 2006 was still open, still serving amazing Ecuadorian food, and still the hot spot for Ecuador World Cup fans in Toronto. That spot is El-Tipico Ecuatoriano on Keele Street. That kind of longevity is awesome and makes me love this place and Ecuador even more. Turns out, this place has been opened for over 35 years. Thirty-five years despite all the changes in the city, the recessions, and oh year, a pandemic, and here they are, once again hosting Ecuador World Cup fans 16 years later. I love that!
And I love that I finally got a goal reaction photos this year for the team I was there to photograph! It was a great outcome for the Ecuador fans against a traditional powerhouse team, Netherlands.
And in case you are wondering if I ate there, I did, and it was amazing. I don’t usually spend time eating at the places I’m photographing, too busy taking photos and having to get ready to head to the next game, but here I made an exception and I’m definitely taking my family back. The owner and staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. I don’t take food photos to post on the gram, but as you can see in the photo below, the food is so good it even finds a way to photo bomb what was otherwise going to be an amazing shot.
