This was a highly recommended event while I was visiting Juayua as part of my second weekend getaway from San Salvador. The town food fest happens rain or shine every Saturday and Sunday. It is the perfect place to sample Salvadorean foods in variety and it doesn't cost much at all. The average plate cost $3 and comes with meat,... More

The feria gastronómica of Juayúa is a busy festival where one can find a lot of food stalls on the square in front of the local church. As tourists visiting the ruta de las flores we visited one Sunday lunch time. It was hard finding some good national cuisine, as it seems it´s more like the ideal occasion for the... More

Paid 5.50 for ribs with a lot of sides included. Food was good and cooked in front of you with real friendly staff. A lot of options too so make sure you have a look around and see what you want. If you are here on the weekend it is worth doing for sure

I cringe when a person who likes to eat good food refers to them self as a "foodie". However this is for people who like good food. We are talking food that is artfully prepared, with drizzle on the plate and wilted greens. Throw in a reduction and meats that are pan seared. All of these things make a foodie... More

We have booked this visit with Thextreme Tour and our guide was very nice and he knew very well the village, we been introduced to very nice places such as Cathedrals, merchants, forest... More

Rabbit, ribs, steaks, shrimp, fish, desserts, coffee, beers, anything you could hope for, all served to you bu the friendly locals with a great big smile. Listen for the... More

You point and then grab a table or share, they cook and serve, you eat--no problem! Highly recommend the booth run by Restaurante R & R--it's located in the street just around the corner (go east and south) and about 1/2 way down the block towards the park. We got the surf&turf (grilled steak and shrimp) and the steak--the grilled... More

Tip: cash only. Festival Bakery (in one of the corners around the plaza has good sweets, check my review and pics). Pros: lots of variety, good value for money, big portions, local food, great experience. Cons: smoky, hot, very busy, hard to find a spot to seat. There are lots of different types of food. It's really hard to choose.
