Antigua Guatemala brings Guatemalan Cuisine to Phoenixville

On June 26th, Phoenixville became home to Antigua Guatemala, "The only restaurant serving authentic Guatemalan cuisine in the Phoenixville area." The restaurant, located at 119 South Main Street (formerly Destiny Brewing Company), owned by Angel Salguero, has gotten positive reviews on various local blogs:

"After trying Antigua Guatemala, I can honestly say that I'm very pleased to have a restaurant like this in the neighborhood. Although the selections are somewhat similar to what you might find at a Mexican restaurant, there are some distinct differences..."

Very good meal at a very low price. I don't know how they do it. I'm looking forward to going back.

This is a gem of a restaurant, and a welcome change to the crowded, over-priced Bridge St restaurants. Good food, great prices, and friendly service. Head 2 blocks up Main St--the old Moose lodge. You can see their menu on Facebook, or at: http://www.angelsantigua.com/

We decided to give this restaurant a try since we live in the neighborhood, and we like to try all the aear eateries. It turned out to be a very unfortunate experience. We were sat immediately, but for some reason it took our server a while to apprear. When we questioned our server about the number of items on the menu, we were unable to get answers as our server did not know the menu either.

Once we got the process started, our server got our food to our table promptly. Unfortunately, the food was very bland. The only thing that kept us going with our meal was salsa sauce which we used it to add the flavor to our meal.

In addition to that, our server disappeared on us for a long period of time even though there were only 3 tables. In the end as we were leaving, we tried to make contact with the lady who we assumed to be the manater/owner?. But we were ignored.

The overall experience is not one that we would recommend to anyone nor do we have any intension of repeating. We were very disappointed compared to other restaurants in town and what they offer.

Very good food & service. It's casual and spacious. Reasonably priced with large portions.
NOTE: Guatemalan cuisine is in between Mexican and Venezuelan (i.e Sazon in Philly).

Try any of the following:
BEV ~ Horchata (Sweetened milk with cinnamon)
BEV ~ Fruit Smoothie (Banana)
APPT ~ Pupusas (both Cheese & Pork) w. Latin Sauerkraut.
ENTREE ~ Any of the Special Caldos (Seasoned Beef Stew)
DESSERT for (1) ~ Atol De Elote (Sweet corn soup w. Cinnamon)
DESSERT for (sharing) ~ Sweet Plantains w. sour cream

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
