Mall El Jardín
Located on the north side of Quito, this is the biggest, most modern and diverse shopping center in the city. It has underground parking and three floors with the most renowned stores where you can find the following: Ground floor: Footwear, clothing, antiques, hairdresser, pharmacy, sports store, sound and vision store, and a pleasant cafe. First Floor: Music store, Supermaxi, the main fast food restaurants, clothing stores, tobacconists, stationers, all kinds of gifts and cosmetics, among others. Second Floor: A spacious food court called The Food Center which has outlets serving both local and international cuisine.
I LIKED THE WAY THE MALL HAS EVERYTHING YOU CAN FIND IN THE STATES. THE VALUE OF THE MALL IS VERY NICE. I WOULD DEFENTLY RECOMEND A VISIT TO EL MALL TE JARDIN; AND ALSO SIGHT SEE THE OUTHER GREAT THINGS ECUADOR HAS TO OFER.
Though it was a VERY clean and nice mall-it had for the most part the same stores that a normal US mall would have less the anchor stores like Sears Pennys Macys etc. The food court had KFC-Taco Bell-Buger King-McDonalds-Pizza Hut. It had nothing different than a US mall would have expect the sales tax in Equador is 12%.
This is a decent mall--neat and clean with interesting shops. I find the food in the food court rather mediocre (with the exception of Sbarros Pizza). And the one full-service restaurant I tried (Bocatto) was horribly overpriced ($14 for a small plate of pasta and a few pieces of bread (a salad wasn't even included). But the most important advice I can offer is to avoid eating at the "Pancake House" across the street (restaurant at top of stairs, no menu posted outside), where I just spent $7 on a meal that would have cost about $3 in any other restaurant, and where I found the quality of the food mediocre at best (e.g., thin, tasteless hamburger certainly prepared from frozen pre-formed patty, underdone fries, and glass of Diet Coke that cost $1.80 [about triple where it costs anywhere else]). I guess the place was designed for dumb and unwary gringos--like me!
This is a beautiful mall.. but it is about 20% more expensive than what you can buy at the mall back home. You should go to the other areas with the outdoor markets to get a good buy on some great souvenirs. OVERPRICED!!!
This is not just a shopping mall but also an entertainment destination for locals and visitors alike, featuring a multitude
of shops and restaurants. Recently renovated, the mall added a new food court and plaza area, plus the new ...
