I have just returned from a short but wonderful trip to Honduras to visit my cousin Sara. We drove across the country from the Mayan ruins at Copan, to hot springs in Gracias, Lempira, to eventually settling in at her home in Comayagua for a few days. Here are pictures of just some of the delicious food I ate!
Cacao: a staple of the ancient Mayan diet
Coffee straight from the source. Usually consumed with a fair amount of added sugar
Anafre de chorizo (chips served fondue-style with meat dip) and encurtido (crunchy pickled vegetables)
Sopa de frijoles (bean soup with poached egg)
Honduran pickle and dulce de leche heaven
Torrejas (molasses soaked pancakes), a traditional Christmas treat
Christmas wouldn’t be complete without homemade Sephardic borekas. Fillings included rice and cheese, beans, and beans and rice.
Pescado de Lago Yojoa (Fish from Lake Yojoa). Served whole, fried, and with encurtido, lime, and banana chips.

Snacking on sugar cane
