Real Mexican Food at Lake Atitlan?

There’s only one restaurant I know of that serves authentic Mexican food: Spanglish in Panajachel. Recipes come from a family in Michoacan. They include tasty choices like the Carnitas de Michoacan, lean chopped pork that is some of the best in Guatemala. spanglish-restaurant-panajachel My favorite is the Cochinita Pibil, a pork dish that riginated in Yucatan and has spread across Mexico. The Cochinita Pibil at Spanglish tastes better than the expensive Los Cebollitas in Antigua and the capital. And the portions are huge. You get a pound of several entrees, which also include chicken dishes such as Tinga, for Q65. That’s enough to feed three people. Spanglish owner Axel just introduced a barbecue sandwich made with pulled pork and a sweet sauce. Spanglish also sells gourmet salsas, olive oil, spices and wine. It’s on Calle Arboles just past Circus Bar.
