Garden Dining at Epicure

En Epicure probando la pasta con salsa cremosa de camembert by  Rudy Girón

Following the advice provided by RWOrange on Dining in the Garden from a few days ago, I decided to pay a visit to Epicure since it’s been a while since my last visit. Also, what better way to continue the dining in the garden series than having lunch in the lush garden in the back of Epicure. Click the thumbnails below to get an idea of how exuberant the garden really is.

I had Epicure’s al dente pasta with a Camembert creamy sauce. It was simply delicious.

As far as I know, Epicure is the only place in La Antigua Guatemala where one can have British-style fish and chips, including the malt vinegar. Do you know of any other place in Antigua Guatemala where fish and chips is available?

        Next challenge for Antigua’s cuisine: mussels and fries (moules et frites). 🙂 preferably on a bistro with different types of beers from around the world.

  • Fish and Chips I seem to recall were available in Kafka. There used to be a restaurant called Fish and Chips in Antigua. Huge fan of Epicure but their policy towards kids could be better worded.

    • @Nic, thanks for mentioning Kafka. I will have to check it out.

    The new Reilly’s has fish and chips.

    • @Santiago, thanks for the tip.

    Dined with a froup of 10 at Epicure last week, it was delectable.I really enjoyed a generous portion of mahimahi with giant shrimp and ratatouille. Dining in the garden was lovely but a bit cool, however the evening was capped off by the owner placing soft shawls around the shoulders of every woman at the table.

      The shawls … what a nice thing to do.

      Stunning photos as always Rudy. My own favorites are the baked goods, especially the croissants and flor de queso (cheese bread).

    Hola,

    Disculpa que te moleste, soy un Guatemalteco viviendo en USA y en verdad me da nostalgia el ver todas tus fotografías y saber que cada día que pasa me pierdo de tantas cosas lindas que ofrece un país como el nuestro. En verdad muchas gracias por tus fotos, de alguna forma nos hacen sentirnos cerca de Guate y de seguir admirando a Guate aun en la distancia.

    Otro de los motivos por los cuales me atrevo a escribirte es porque quisiera saber si alguna vez has mandado a traer cosas a USA y si has usado el servicio de USPS + correos de Guatemala para que lleguen tus cosas seguras, bueno de ser positiva tu respuesta, claro.
    Actualmente quisiera enviarle un celular a mi señora madrecita pero no me atrevo por lo que no sé que tan seguro sea usar estos servicios o si hay algunas otras opciones que tu o alguien que conozcas me podría orientar, de ante mano muchas gracias. Si fueras tan amable de responder te estaria muy agradecido.

    Gracias por tu tiempo!

    • @ECabrera, no creo que sea buena idea enviar un teléfono a Guatemala. Es mejor enviar el dinero y uno se compra aquí el teléfono que más le guste y que funcionará con las empresas telefónicas de Guatemala.

  • Gracias por poner estas fotos, Rudy! Así conozco desde lejos. =)

    • @Andi, de nada es un placer compartir lo que veo con ustedes.

  • There’s Fish and Chips at Caffe Bourbon too now, it seems Antigua is catering to your food requirements now Rudy 🙂

    • @Nic, thanks for the alert. I think I will try fish-n-chips today, care to join me?
