Cheap, tasty and - what's the most important - local food. I love that it's hidden and not so accessible to everyone. When I travel I tend to avoid touristy places and La Canche was a real hidden gem. We ate there a couple of...More
My second visit here (last was several years ago) for lunch. There's a small menu that changes daily, all typical Guatemalan dishes. I had the caldo de res (kind of a broth) with a side of vegetables, rice and a large piece of pork. Price...More
