Antigua, GT: El Papaturro - Salvadorian horchata and welcoming service

rworange | Nov 29, 201008:29 PM     1

The dishes are primarily Guatemalan with some crepes, pastas, soups, salads, burgers and sandwiches. Guatemalan cuisine includes the usual dishes such as pepian and some less often seen dishes such as torrejas and piloyada. It might be best to skip the less common dishes.

There are also Salvadorian pupusas including a Florentine pupusa with spinach and cheese. It seems the owners are Salvadorian and those might be the strong points on the menu. The yucca frites sound interesting - fried yucca served with cabbage salad and little fried fish.

I was greeted warmly when I entered and made to feel very welcome.
