Promoting traditional Guatemalan food by preparing a wide variety of foods that you can find in a Guatemalan home including stews, soups, grilled meats, beans, and Guatemalan side dishes, which are all readily available for a mix-and-match experience. The aim is to serve traditional dishes with a homemade taste in a family-friendly atmosphere and really good service. The food is served in clay pots that give it a very authentic look.
“Interesting experience – you can see and select your food on the way in. The typical meal is a stew with a couple sides. Inside there are a few rooms with filtered light and plants. Quite serene. Tasty stew, bottomless coffee, and a side of peppers and onions.” -Mitch C.
“I ate here twice while in Antigua. Once for lunch and once for breakfast. You can view the stews upon entry and choose from a variety of sides, I really liked the pickled beet and cabbage slaw, and the pickled bean salad. There is also table service where there is a menu you can pick from.” -Tessa Lucero
