HELL'S KITCHEN, Manhattan (WABC) --
The name 'Nano' means 'big brother; in Quechua - an indiginious language of Ecuador, and that is how the owner, Abel Castro comes across.
At his restaurant, you'll find shrimp ceviche and cazuella, which is like a shrimp stew with peanuts. There is also goat served along with tripe in peanut sauce, green plantain fritters, humita - a corn and cheese cake steamed in a corn husk, and seco de pollo.
"Seco de pollo is one of the most authentic dishes, made with naranjilla, a fruit from the north," says Castro.Naranjilla is like a sour orange, and that juice is added to chicken that is sauteeing in sofrito, cumin, and red pepper flakes. It is served with rice and plantains.
Castro worked in film and finance before opening Nano two years ago, and he's thrilled he did.
"We are here to serve...it's gratifying," he says.

This tiny Hell’s Kitchen spot offers a number of classic, super-fresh Ecuadorian dishes, like ceviche, tortillas de verde, and humitas. Opt for the caldo de bola, a beef soup with a plantain dumpling filled with beef, egg, raisins, and peanut sauce -- it’s the perfect cold-day treat, and the plantain dumpling is so good, we’d eat a whole order of them alone.
