Pescado Loco is for Fish and Chips

Rudy Giron: &emdash; Fish and Chips Combo from Pescado Loco

Finally we have an affordable fish and chips spot in Antigua Guatemala. This tiny place has two tables that can accommodate about 10 people and actual sand on the floor as well as water fountain that runs through the front counter. Anyhow, Pescado loco, crazy fish for you anglophones, only serves fish and chips as of now. And for me, they can stay that way.

Anyhow, the fish and chips combo, which includes a coleslaw salad as well, will set you back Q40/$5, add a drink for Q10/$1.25 even if it’s a beer. Thats somewhere between one third to one half what other fish and chips venues charge. You can guess I have a new fish and chips spot. Bon appetite!

    Wow! Fish n’ chips in LAG! How many restaurants are there in Antigua now?! Fish n’ chips over here in UK is actually the same price, as it is a working man’s food and almost always take away. The chips are usually much thicker and of course coleslaw/lemon would be replaced by salt n’ vinegar and maybe a giant pickled gherkin (pepino curtido). It used to be wrapped in newspaper to absorb the grease and for cost reasons. Hence the phrase “He’s tomorrow’s chip wrappings”, as applied to someone who is news today, but gone and unimportant tomorrow
    Rudy, your work is always interesting and completely invaluable…it must be tough going round all these restaurants and trying (or worse; NOT trying) theses tempting delicacies. I encourage fans and readers to blitz Rudy with invitations for lunch at all the places Antigua has to offer so these photos can keep coming; and even then we cannot sufficiently reward him for all the happiness he brings us!

    Ok, this is the ultimate proof that LAG is not Guatemala (which doesn’t exist, trust me I’ve been there). I bet they have a decent fish taco. Next test: moules et frites (mussels, mejillones) a Belgian classic. Then a poutine joint (pull your head out of the gutter Don Rudy).

    Guaau, Rudy! Really, a ‘fish and chips’ joint ? Pretty soon, i’ll have to travel outside of LAG just to find shucos, elote asado, or tortillas y frijoles, ha-ha-ha ! Seriously, it sounds like a good place, especially if it gets your seal of approval. Maybe I will get a chance to try it for myself, soon….?
