Believe it or not, we also have tacos in Guatemala. Guatemalan tacos, however, do not resemble Mexican tacos at all. Guatemalan tacos are normally deep-fried and have potato or meat filling. Guatemalan tacos are normally served with steamed cabbage, tomato sauce and chile sauce; other times they might come topped with Guacamol (avocado sauce), chopped parsley and grated cheese.
The tacos above are from Tacos y Refrescos El Portalito, a classic taco joint from Antigua Guatemala with several decades of existence.
Have you ever had Guatemalan tacos?
