Comedor Rosita

Walk down the road across from the central church in San Pedro and on your left you’ll find a yellow building with a dusty concrete ramp leading up into the dark interior. While it may not be much to look at, Comedor Rosita is a local favorite for traditional Guatemalan meals at reasonable prices.

Here's a Google Map to help you get there.

Tulan Kan, Indian restaurant in San Pedro La Laguna

Adding to San Pedro La Laguna’s already diverse range of restaurants, a new hot spot has recently reopened, specializing in Indian cuisine. Located a short walk from San Pedro’s Santiago Pier, the eatery shares a space with the well-established Tulan Kan Center, which has information about traditional Mayan culture and also serves as an exhibition space for local artists.

The restaurant is run by Englishwoman Tamar Atik, who also does all of the cooking. Atik moved to Lake Atitlan more than five years ago, and spent her time working in different bars and restaurants around town.

Burmese food makes a debut in San Pedro La Laguna

Burmese cuisine is an often forgotten fare, but residents of San Pedro La Laguna can now experience the magical cooking of Myanmar at the brand new restaurant, Burma Pop.

After visiting a restaurant in San Francisco called Burma Superstar, owners Tom Nelson and Sara Kolata were inspired to explore the unique cuisine themselves. Burmese cooking takes many influences from its surrounding countries; Bangladesh, India, China, Laos, and Thailand. However, Burmese cuisine has had limited exposure in the west and is very much a “hidden kitchen” as Nelson puts it.

Traditional Salvadorian Streetfood in San Pedro la Laguna, Guatemala

If you’re heading to San Pedro La Laguna on Lake Atitlan, you’ll be happy to hear there’s a wide range of culinary delights available all around town. From sushi restaurants to pizza parlours, bakeries and Mexican joints, there’s something for everyone in this happening spot.

But if you’re looking for some late night bites, you can head down for some local street food in the center of lower San Pedro. Every night a handful of locals congregate and the roads turn from jewelry and macramé vendors into barbecue stalls and sandwich makers.
