I know you South and Central American Chowhounds are out there. What were your favs this year?
My top honor goes to ...
Antigua, GT: El Rincon del Conquistador – caracoles en la crema de ajo
I haven't written this up yet, but it was one of my top, if not my top taste this year.
A dozen plump caracoles were in a lovely elegant cream soup subtley flavored with herbs.Photo below\
More in the first reply.
And while it isn't food ... it is about food. One of the top sites about Guatemala is Antiigua Daily Photo.
Without this site I would have missed so much about Guatemalan food. Also fabulous for info about Antigua and Guatemala in general. What is wonderful is it is NOT a site for tourists. It is just someone recording everyday life in Gautemala and, as a result, provides an amazing insight into all things Guatemalan ... and it is in English. Be sure to read the comments as well where there is a wealth of info.
What knocked your socks off in South and Central America?
