Say Pepián!

4 caminos pepian by Eddie Deleon

No Guatemala vacation can be complete without the long anticipated visit to restaurants that serve traditional Guatemalan dishes, or Comida Tipica. The most adventurous head straight to the street vendors and stalls in the Central Market. Others prefer the pleasant atmosphere of restaurants like Arrin Cuan. Located in the historical district of the city, the restaurant spreads over five large rooms of a colonial house. Here you can enjoy a variety of stews, Pepián being one of the favorites, while listening to live music. The Cuatro Caminos, or Four Roads, plate seen in the picture is a perfect starter. The adorable smiles are courtesy of my nieces Rebeca and Deborah.
