2 week trip to Guatemala. Need food recommendations :)
I've been reading some wonderful and informative posts about place to eat in Antigua and surrounding areas. Thank you for all of that great info!
We are going over the Holidays. We will be in Antigua for New Years and TIkal/El Remate for Christmas. We are sort of on a budget but are willing to splurge for a few meals for GREAT food. We would mostly like to stick to local cuisine since we are only there for a few weeks. But like I said, if we need to make an exception, we will :)
Hear is what I've gathered so far:
Sobre Mesa- for icecream, snacks
El Tenedor del Cerro- drinks, snacks and a great view
Panza Verde for breakfast
Coffee- El Refugio, LA Parada and Fernandos
Coffee Beans from Tostaduria Antigua
Pastries/Bread from San Antonio Panaderia
Yaxha- lunch@ El Sombrero Lodge
El Remate- possibly go to Coppola's joint for some wine and pepian
Let us know if you have any other MUST eat spots. We also could use some tips for El Remate, Flores, Lanquin, and the Lake Atitlan area.
Thank you in advance for any tips you can give us!
The fun of Antigua is finding your own discoveries- there are a lot of good restaurants all around. The best food will be found in steak houses, which are plentiful. Casa Escobar is in Antigua and very good. A few doors up is a smaller, less expensive one called Madre Tierra that is very good too. Bistro Cinq (5) is also great- not guat food, but good.
