I really like the naí¯f aspects of this sign. I like how the composition is trying very hard to include all the antigüeño elements into one sign. I like the Gato (cat), the sign maker, left his paw print marks/signature on the upper right corner.
Okay, let translate the the above sign: La Casa de las Mixtas Café (The House of Mixtas Cafe). Mixtas, if you recall, are the Guatemalan twist on the hot dog. Mixtas use a tortilla instead of a bun for the hot dog. Tradición familiar desde 1901 (Family tradition since 1901).
Come back tomorrow if you want to see one more sample of the Guatemalan Cuisine series: Platillo típico.
