Restaurant & Food Overview

RWOrange put together a very comprehensive list of the restaurants and food I have covered in AntiguaDailyPhoto in Chowhound. Here’s the list of options to dine in La Antigua Guatemala.

Antigua Daily Photo has become my food bible as well as a wonderful resource for all things about Antigua. It is updated daily and well worth checking out if going to this city’

Licuado Culture
http://antiguadailyphoto.com/2009/09/18/licuado-culture/

“I used to go hunker down to work online at Rainbow Café just so I could sip on a papaya-yogurt licuado … It didn’t take me long to find the cheapest licuados in town though. At the market, you can usually order a licuado with water for Q7. At El Merendor it will cost you Q8. Looking for a spot more “oriente” go to Cookies where a licuado with water also costs Q7. Just add a quetzal or two for anything blended with milk or yogurt”
