The easiest way to get authentic traditional Guatemalan cuisine is to get a daily menu special at your local diner. For instance, this meal known as Pepián, quite possibly Guatemala’s National Dish, was part of the daily menu special which included a fresco, drink made from blended natural fruits, sugar and water (more watery than a licuado), rice and tortillas, all for Q25. This meal can be had at Comedor Típico Antigüeño, right on Alameda Santa Lucía, right across from the Municipal Market of La Antigua Guatemala.
Could somebody share the recipe for Pepián with the rest of us? Thanks! 😉
