Guatemala: Escuintla restaurants, street food and more

My main post covering all of Guatemala is getting long so I'm starting a new post here. The Esquintla section of that long topic starts here
http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7037...

Escuintla is both a department and a city. Esquintla, Esquintla is like saying NY, NY.

Although all my posts to date are about the city, I plan on exploring the costal region, so this will have food information for the department of Esquintla as well

Places in the city of Esquintla that I've tried to date:

Tho shuco dogs belong under general cuisine notes because they are everywhere in Guatemala, the one I describe here was bought in Escuintla. I don't have the exact address, but on the street that leads to the center of town, there is an Esso gas station and a Shell gas station across the street from each other. This cart is in the driveway of one of them .. the only such cart in that immediate area.
