A unique dining experience

SachaJi Cuisine

Dining is an integral element of the holistic experience at My SachaJi.

Delicious buffet breakfast (free for overnight guests), lunch and dinner are served in our dining room or outdoor patio, looking onto the magnificent volcano.

Using organic, locally sourced produce that is in-season, much of which is from My SachaJi’s own vegetable garden and orchard, our new Argentinian chef Maria Cecilia Acuña invites you to try dishes that are visually striking, healthy and full of flavor – ideal to incorporate into your day-to- day lifestyle.

Inspired by working for several years with visionary chef Tim Nickey in Miami, Maria Cecilia uses fabulous local ingredients like quinoa, pumpkin, famous Ecuadorian shrimp, and award-winning chocolate.

The chef specializes in vegan and vegetarian food, crafting vegetables into superior dishes so much more than the sum of their parts, while also working with white meat like organic chicken and locally-sourced trout and sea bass.

Before sitting down to eat, take a stroll through our exuberant organic vegetable garden and orchard – many of our ingredients like zucchini, squash, and beetroot are grown right there before our chef expertly turns them into gourmet works of art.


For guests not spending the night, advance reservations are required.

Meet Your Chef

Local & organic

Tea and Juice bar

Our dining experience goes beyond the menu. Our staff gladly craft teas from herbs freshly picked from the garden, specific to your needs. You might even learn something knew about traditional medicine: rosemary tea for a headache, anyone?

And who said that juices were only for fruit? At My SachaJi we use the organic vegetables and herbs from our own garden and the local area to make vibrantly coloured, delicious juices, perfect to detox, energise, and boost your immune system. Beetroot, spinach, ginger and kale have never tasted so good!

Ecuadorian variety

In a radius of 300km we can source products from at least three ecosystems: cloud forest (coffee, honey and chocolate), coast (papaya, shrimp, banana) and the Andes (grains, berries).

Chocolate and coffee

The tropical climate and tremendous biodiversity here suite coffee and cacao down to the ground, meaning that Ecuador is blessed with the finest organic beans around.

Shrimp

Less than 300 km from Otavalo are the beaches of the Pacific Ocean, where some of the world’s finest seafood come from, including sustainably-fished shrimp.

Quinoa

The super-food of the moment high in fibre and protein, quinoa has long been a traditional grain in the Andes and a staple of the local diet.

Soups

It is said that Ecuador has some 1,000 traditional soups, ranging from light with fish and yucca to hearty with beans and vegetables: all steaming with health!

Fruit

With exotic-sounding names like golden berry and soursop, Ecuador’s choice of fruit takes in almost every colour, shape and size imaginable.
