El Peñascal - Restaurant Cobán - Guatemala

A rustic folkloric restaurant with soothing background music, this is the best place to try cuisine unique to the region. Its fine dining standards ensure quality service and exquisite taste. The house specialty, kak-Ik ($8.75) is highly recommended. Other typical dishes worth trying are the tepezcuintle (a wild rodent known as lowland paca) stew and turtle soup. To save some pennies, try its economical set lunch ($3.65) that is equally rich and filling. Live marimba performances start at 8pm every Saturday. (Open daily 7a.m.-11p.m.)
