We traveled to Cayambe in search of the famous bizcochos (biscuits). When we got there we were lucky to find them not busy. The locals say that this shop is always busy and lines can go around the corner waiting to purchase these tasty bites.
It is one of the fastest hand manufacturing operations we have ever seen. The young strong men work the dough to make the bizcochos. Once they finish working the dough it is cooked in an old fashion wood fired brick oven. Upon completion of cooking they are placed in paper bags for sale to the public to take home and enjoy. Each full bag of bizcochos cost only $1.00 USD!
