This chicken meal will cost you about 15 Q in Guatemala. That is about 2 US dollars and includes the drink. The basket in the left rear has some tortillas in it. It’s a pretty filling meal and these family run restaurants are pretty clean. They even brought me a bowl of soup to eat with my meal that was included.
So far the only street food I have ate has been a fresh roasted ear of corn. They peel the corn and just throw it on the grill. Then you can have a piece of lime and salt to rub on it. An ear of corn cost me 5 Q. I’ve been playing it pretty safe and eating raw garlic if my stomach starts to growl.
Presently I’m trying to take care of some back pain which involves massages, sauna and chiropractic care. More to come on that.
Not many tourists in Antigua, Guatemala at the moment. I was speaking to some gringo business owners and they seem to be worried. Walking around at night you see a lot of empty restaurants. I think the cheap market diners are doing the best business at the moment.
