A local had recommended La Cuevita as a good example of local flavor.
Glad we gave it a try!
You order as you enter the open faced establishment, with the options right there before you.
Meaty 'stew' dishes are one of your three choices for your meal-
then 2 sides, ranging from rice to bean salad to guacamole to whatever...
a tamale comes along with, regardless of your 3 choices.
I had the combination meat dish- a bit spicy, but not overbearing at all.... the guac was very good, tho' thin- not a thick paste you might expect, rather almost runny- tasty, regardless.
rice was 'meh'... nothing special.
comes with bready tortillas that help sop up the stew juice.
all in all, good food-
but for lunch and the amount you received, it wasn't a great value at all- ran about 80 Quetzales, or about 10US... not a bargain whatsoever.
odd little courtyard, but cool.
most curious thing for us was the 'suspect' group of 4 gregarious men with $$$$$ Rolex's on the wrists, etc., being looked after by 2 other quite stoic men at another table... one could only venture to guess what that scenario was all about, but as a friend postulated, 'even gangsta's gotta eat!".
we'd return for another go with their yummy stews, but certainly go a different route with the sides.
