Typical Guatemalan Breakfast Booth

Everywhere in Guatemala you can find breakfast stalls similar to one shown above where the working class and anybody’s hungry can stop by to get an orange juice or licuado (smoothies) and a pan con pollo (chicken sandwich), or pan with you name it, chiles rellenos, guacamol, frijoles (beans), et cetera. The bread used to prepare the sandwiches is normally pirujo, an elongated French roll, but you can also find pan galleta and pan francés (French roll). Tostadas are usually available at these kind of desayunos on the go.

One interesting trivia is that many workers order their orange juice with raw eggs.
