Antigua, GT: El Convento has a new chef

Hungry Celeste | Jul 10, 2012 04:58 AM

As of just 10 days ago, the restaurant at Hotel El Convento ( ) has a new chef. Titi Bruderer, fresh off of a long stint at Tamarindos in Guatemala City, is now in the kitchen at El Convento. The chef herself came to the table and described the dishes on offer: interesting stuff like gnocchi w/loroco, salads w/a coffee dressing, soups (artichoke, cream of corn), a delicious corn risotto w/ chipilin, strip steak w/rum & coffee sauce....service was attentive, but it's clear that chef & staff are still working out the kinks.

Food was way, way better than Panza Verde; it was easily the best food I ate during a 5-day trip to Antigua.
