La Feria Gastronomica Internacional De Juayua

I have been staying in the lovely town of Juayua, El Salvador, for several days now.  Each Saturday and Sunday the town hosts an “international” food fair which draws many visitors from San Salvador and various countries.  The streets are taken over by food booths, live entertainment, and last Sunday there were even belly dancers!

Over the period I had incredible ceviche and the largest shrimp I have ever seen.

I also had a plate with a very tender flank steak which came with some small balls of chorizo, tortillas, rice, plantains and two kinds of salsa for $5.00.

There were lots of choices.  Here are a few a did not get around to this time.



This fellow was walking around with a live Boa around his neck.  I wonder if he was planning to serve it later.
