The Ceviche Man

Panajachel, Guatemala

Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Unlike Mexico, Guatemala is not known for its street food. However there are exceptions.

Mexico offers dynamic, tasty street food with all sorts of sauces. It can be chicken, beef, pork, snacks and even dessert but it's bound to be tasty. Guatemala has a more traditional cuisine, and most of it is sold in small sit-down restaurants instead of on the street.

Kili has a moveable, outdoor place where he mixes up fresh ceviche daily.

It is consistently packed with people who know the quality of his product, and we often stand in line to order take out.

Right across from Kili's place is the 500 year old stone church built in the 16th century after the Spanish and their Maya Kaqchikel allies defeated the Tz'utujils, another Maya tribe. This church and its plaza is a place of action, gatherings and events. It has a stately beauty set against the caldera of the lake.

Kili tosses freshly chopped tomatoes, onions, spices, shrimp, and lime in a bowl for each individual order. One can have this ceviche with or without minced garlic and hot sauce. We take both.

!Voila! A 20 Quetzal cup of shrimp ceviche ready to eat! This will feed the two of us and comes with a side of saltine crackers.

If you find yourself in Pana, be sure to make your way to the old church and find Killi. He'll make you up a tasty treat!
