Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Make sure you go to this Ecuadoran joint on a weekend, when caldo de bola is on offer. The centerpiece of this $7 soup is a softball of mashed plantains, ground beef, peas, raisins and chunks of hard-boiled egg. The spongy orb sits in a cilantro-accented broth surrounded by carrots, potatoes and corn on the cob—and it’s a perfect opener for El Tesoro’s other specialty: seafood. Of the nearly 20 ceviches, you’ll be particularly seduced by the one overflowing with shrimp ($8). The accompanying giant kernels of roasted corn will have you grabbing for something to cut the starch, like a supersweet tropical apple soda.
