Here’s a link to an article I wrote for the Seed website a couple of months ago.
For a small community of around 320 families, Mampuján has a surprisingly large number of eating options. These range from two restaurants at the front of the town, another along a side street, several fruit stands, including women selling whatever fruit happens to be in season, (currently mangos and avocados) to women selling homemade popsicles, ice, and corn or rice based drinks from their houses. Even if you are not looking to buy a meal, a casual visit to almost any home close to mealtime will almost certainly result in the offer of some sort of overly filled plate of whatever the family will be eating that day. One highly recommended local eatery is the nameless roadside restaurant at the side of the highway.
