I believe it was in 2010 or early 2011 when I first had lunch at what I called La Cocina De Rosario. Heck, I even left the following tip on Foursquare: “You have to try pepián, pulique and subanik at this comedor.” The reason I called this diner La Cocina De Rosario and created the entry on Foursquare was because the food was so authentic, inexpensive and plentiful, and it didn’t have a name plate outside. It was a tiny comedor, diner, with two or three tables, and we knew the owner name is Rosario. This diner was simply another zaguán business, you know the entryway business I have talked about in the past.
It is incredible how the place has been growing and growing ever since. This is the latest improvement: new wooden furniture and a huge large dining area. I guess Rosario’s formula for success is something to pay attention to: authentic Guatemalan food, inexpensive and plentiful dishes. That’s the way to do it.
