Who wants to order an order of fiambre? We do deliveries the world over, 30 minutes or it’s free.
Honestly, I don’t know why the salads get such a bad reputation. As you may already know, Guatemalan fiambre is a salad, really. Let’s call it a super salad which has lots of meats, all kinds: sausages, hams, chicken, sea food, meats pork and beef. For the next two days skip the meat lover’s pizza; a mere 5 or 6 meats on it, instead choose a fiambre salad, which has over 25 meats.
Watch this time-lapse video that I recorded this afternoon that shows all the steps and ingredients that go into to the fiambre salad. ¡Buen provecho!
As in previous years, the photos were taken at Lo-Mix Cafeteria, which is a small diner with over 40 years of making fiambre. Lo-Mix is chosen by many Antigüeños as their fiambre provider and we have bought our fiambre from them since 2002. The owners of Lo-Mix told me it takes them about 15 days of pre preparation to get to the stage you see in the photos/videos. For those who live in Antigua and want to know where buy good fiambre, Lo-Mix is on 7a calle poniente N. 25B and their telephone number is 5656-9417.
