In the past decade, fine-dining restaurants like Flor De Lis, Diacá, and Sublime have elevated Guatemalan cuisine. A new generation of chefs is blending traditional techniques with modern twists and diverse flavors. Mercado 24’s 2014 opening marked the beginning of this culinary renaissance, celebrating local markets and produce.
