Llapingachos (which doesn't really alliterate with "Liveliest," since the LL is pronounced as a Y) are the potato-cheese pancakes of Ecuador, colored bright yellow and fried to a golden brown. Find them at El Patio, a former diner clad in flagstone on Northern Boulevard that has been turned to South American usages. While you can order the llapingachos separately, why not try one of the omnibus platters like bandera ecuatoriana ("Ecuadorian flag"), which, in addition to a couple of potato pancakes, includes shrimp ceviche, goat stew, and tripe with potatoes.
