Argentinian empanadas in Antigua
I took an impromptu weekend trip to Guatemala with Andy of The Wind Attack. It was a whirlwind trip - from the red-eye five hour flight from Los Angeles, to the sketchy rental car driving to the ever warm sub-tropical air and finally, delicious food eaten along the way. And yeah, not all of it was Guatemalan food. This is partly because we were in Antigua most of the time, which has a huge expat community, meaning the city center is swarming with international must-haves like bagels and Thai food. As a side note, I do not keep my Greek Orthodox Lenten fast while traveling in foreign countries (because I have to try the cheese, duh!) Here are some of the things consumed:
Taquería. 3 tacos or 1 gringo quesadilla for about $1.20. Huge burrito? $2.40.
Fancy organic breakfast burrito in Panajachel
Oat Pancakes and tropical fruit in Panajachel
