Guatemalan food info?

rworange | Apr 8, 2008 12:45 PM

There's a really good chance I'll be moving to Guatamala in the next year. Can anyone tell me about the cuisine?

This is so stupid because I know my SO's family for waaay over a decade ... yet nothing ever seemed specifically Guatamalan. Yeah the tamales are different and the baked goods a little different. However, the food was just Latin American. Although they speak English and I speak bad Spanish ... something gets lost in the translation.

All tips would be a help

If you have cookbook info, please respond on this link

I'll be googling info and looking at past Chowhound posts but any shared info would be appreciated. I don';t want to look like and idiot if I move there ... sigh ... I guess it is time to REALLY learn Spanish.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
