“Good Choice for Regional Cuisine”
Review of Utz Hua

Utz Hua
Ranked #62 of 138 Restaurants in Quetzaltenango
Cuisines: Guatemalan
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 4, 2013

I am not really in a position to make a definitive judgement about whether Utz Hua is the best place to get regional cuisine in Guatemala, but I can say that the dishes on the menu, though simple, we're interesting. The tomato-based salsa in my dish was fresh and tasty; the pickled onion and beet salad was a nice accompaniment; and the tortillas were soft, almost fluffy, fresh delights. I liked the direct simplicity of the food presentation, simple with an aesthetic touch -- not the slam-bang utilitarianism of a McDonald's. I would go here again for lunch.

Not as good as it used to be, it's Hua still does serve the local cuisine at a reasonable price. Their Pepian de pollo used to be better. Perhaps I just caught it on a wrong day or perhaps a new generation has taken over the restaurants and does not have the level of caring that grandma had.

Try any of their locations for very good "tipico" Guatemalan cuisine. The menu of the day has some interesting variations too.

Authentic Chapin cuisine. Always a good sign when the locals are eating with you. Very affordable and close to the Plaza.
