    Where NOT to eat in Antigua Guatemala : Sunset Terrace Review | La Terraza Sunset Review


    Eating out in Antigua Guatemala tends to be an adventure, usually an exploratory one. Typically you can find semi decent to excellent food with good customer service at a decent to very good price point. Sunset Terrace / La Terraza Sunset isn’t one of those places. In Guatemala, there tends to be a disconnect between actual circumstances and business logic ...

    What to do in Antigua Guatemala : Go to the Mercado to make lunch


    When you’re in one place for a couple weeks, you eventually develop a routine. With Mitchell around, the idea of wild adventure travelling was pretty much thrown out of the equation. However, I do love cooking when I have the chance to do so. Walking from the house to the Mercado here in Antigua takes about 5 minutes. At first, ...

    Where to eat in Antigua Guatemala : El Viejo Cafe review


    After a week in Antigua Guatemala, everyone has recommendations for great breakfast places. I’ve always found that the best recommendations will come from other service providers or owners in the food business. After having a couple drinks at Kafka, I was chatting with Kevin (one of the owners) and he recommended El Viejo Cafe as one of his “go-to” places ...

    Where to eat in Antigua Guatemala : Cactus Tacos review


    In Antigua Guatemala, you can find a lot of patios but not a lot of sidewalk bars. You know why? There aren’t many sidewalks because the streets are cobblestoned and there isn’t much walkway.  However on our way to 7A Norte a couple nights ago, we passed by Cactus Tacos and I made a note about trying them, since I’m ...

    Where to eat in Antigua Guatemala : Jardin Bavaria review


    It was back to Jardin Bavaria today for lunch after breakfast at Fernando’s. I’ve always liked coming here at least once during an Antigua trip. My original post : http://www.rishiray.com/another-installment-of-eating-in-jardin-bavaria-antigua/ Today, however wasn’t the greatest meal I had there because of a misalignment of expectations. Customer have expectations and when you see something on the menu that you know … ...

    Where to eat in Antigua Guatemala : Pizza in the ruins : 7A Norte Pizzeria review


    The search for a great patio in Antigua Guatemala doesn’t tend to be very hard work. However, just like finding a great bowl of fragrant Pho, a well balanced plate of Pad Thai or a flavorful well done steak … finding a great patio can be a lot of trial and error before you find greatness. At 7A Norte Pizzeria, ...

    Semana Santa Antigua Guatemala 2015 … Easter Sunday ambitions realigned


    The ambition of those without children or knowledge of children. Before Mitchell, I had such high hopes and ambitions of him being a super travelling baby and allowing us to catch up with travelling and not missing a beat. As we’re now into day 3 of our month-ish time in Antigua Guatemala, I’ve realized that while he is a super ...

    6am sushi at Tsukiji Market … yeah put it on your bucket list.


    I was just browsing through travel related articles and I stumbled on this gem on “Medium.com“.  I can’t think of a single piece of writing about Sushi that was more educational and entertaining as this “Ten Commandments of Sushi” article. In Toronto, we have the “AYCE” (All you can eat) sushi concept. A couple thoughts about this … It’s a ...

    The Antigua Guatemala McDonald’s is the best on the planet …


    I’ll preface this post with a video. I am not a fan of McDonalds regardless of their marketing campaign about the quality of food. That being said, I am a fan of great location, great service and an experience and the Antigua Guatemala McDonald’s location is easily the best McDonald’s I’ve seen on the planet. It is one of the best ...

    Semana Santa Antigua Guatemala 2015 … Good Friday is done


    It’s 8pm and the drums are still going. If you’re looking to sleep during Semana Santa in Antigua Guatemala … you’re looking in the wrong place. At least, our accommodations aren’t in the middle of the preparations or celebrations, but the cymbals and drums are !@$$! annoying, especially since they aren’t very good. This is really the first time, I’ve ...
