True Guatemalan food at its best. A must!
Authentic Guatemalan cuisine.
Step inside Casa Chapina and you'll be at one of the institutions of traditional Guatemalan cuisine, also known as chapina, hence the name of this restaurant. It is located in the heart of the Zona Viva of the capital and its mission is simple: to offer diners the most indigenous menu possible. Here, you'll have the chance to try tamales, the typical guacamole and bean toasts, the excellent beef hilachas, chicharrones, jocón and a practically endless list of all the best national dishes. This philosophy also applies to the desserts and drinks, setting a truly authentic scene. One of the most entertaining aspects are the corn tortillas made to order in full view of the diners; a perfect reflection of the traditional spirit and values of the restaurant. It also has a vegetarian menu. Buen provecho!
