“Pan de Xela”

Saturday, December 14th, 2013

Xelajú, Guatemala’s second largest urban center, known as “Xela” by most Guatemalans who refuse to pronounce the entire name “Xelajú” is famous for its delicious “Pan” (bread).
A friend of mine came from Xelajú tonight and he brought me some “Pan de Xela”. I was supposed to save it for tomorrow’s breakfast but Eli could not wait.
Here we feature “Shecas” (the flying saucer looking one) with anise seeds, “Bolas de Berlin” (round ones stuffed with Manjar), and last we have “Pan de Manzana” (apple marmalade stuffed bread, the long ones).
Oh, I so wish I had a cup of Antigua’s coffee and I’ll be in Nirvana.
