Sushi -- Guate Style

You know you're in Guatemala when your sushi roll is wrapped in fried plantains...

Big-H and I got a taxi over to our friends' apartment to join them for lunch at the roof top pool. Yeah, there's a sushi bar at the pool. There's also an amazing chef there named Antonio who makes some of the best food in the city. It's pricey for Guatemala, but well worth it for the quality.

With an amazing view of the city and the sky from the 15th floor, we dined on white wine, sushi and tempura veggies.
Tempura was Q50 ($6.30), sushi roll was Q70 ($8.80).

This was the Tropical Roll: El Rollo Tropical: tuna, avocado, some kind of crispy ginger sweetness, fried plantain and a drizzle of sweet soy sauce. The creamy rich texture of the plantains complimented the velvety tuna and avo, and the crispy ginger added a fresh little pop. My new favorite roll ever.
