Lent Food: Buñuelos

Rudy Giron: AntiguaDailyPhoto.com &emdash; Preparando buñuelos

Just as in other celebrations, Lent has a food that is sold at the food stalls out side where velación, vigil, is held. Some of the food is also found during other celebrations such buñuelos which I believe were first covered during the Christmas season. Here we see the king of buñuelos preparing the first batch for the velación of Santa Inés, the village located at entrance of Antigua Guatemala.

By the way, the order of buñuelos is Q10 /$1.25; how many orders would you like?

    Yes please, deme 3 ordenes para empesar porfas!

    I think my new gringo doctor would not mind the fried stuff ( I’m currently on meds for hbp and cholesterol, yikes ! ) When I told him that I was from Guate his eyes lit up ! It turns out that he and his wife are in love with the land of eternal spring and drink coffee from Coban.
    One pound of Antigua’s finest should do the trick when I return from Guate and go back for a check up. Shut up and drink your cafe doc, do you want a rosca ? je je je

    • Oh I am so sorry to hear those terrible news NYChapin, no buñuelos or churros for you my friend. 🙁

    Bunuelos are best paired with “Pinol” served on Jicara.

    My bad, it is not Pinol. It is called: Batido.
