Tapado

What’s a Tapado?

Well, I rather have this sign I found outside a restaurant in Livingston explain it to you. If you speak French.
Tapado

Bon Appétit

    True story:
    Back in 1982, A group of my cousins and I were taken on a trip around Lake Atitlan by my father. We stopped in a number of small towns and ate at a couple of restaurants that had menus offering chicken and beef with bechamel. Curious patojos that we were, we asked what ” bechamel” was. A french white sauce, we were told, and that it was pronouced with a “sh” sound, beshamel. We nodded our heads in silence until one of my cousins yelled out: beshamel culo! To this day that is his nickname. He is a doctor now, but not sure if proctology is his specialty.

      Ha ha NYChapin. Let me add to your story, you patojos were shutes, the Guatemalan word for curious. The word shute comes from the K’iche language and it means “ass”.
