Big Burger Flor del Café in San Pedro, on Lake Atitlan was an accidental discovery. I was on my way to check out the accommodations provided by Hotel Mikaso to see if it was suitable to accommodate participants in my all-inclusive tutorial resort participants. I was hungry as I walked along the Otro Lado, and spotted the Big Burger Flor del Café menu so I took a seat on the tiny terrace.

I appreciate good food, but all the more so when the portions served make for a great value. At Big Burger Flor del Café the food is tasty, the servings are massive, and the price is very inexpensive. There is no WiFi available, but one can not have everything.

The Big Burger Flor del Café is a small, locally owned, mom and pop operation. No one working at the Big Burger Flor del Café speaks English, but the menu is fairly self explanatory. I broke my vegetarian streak and ordered a BLT. My thinking was a couple of strips of bacon wasn’t going to set my battle to reduce my cholesterol back too much.

My sandwich arrived. I was stunned to see that it dwarfed the plate it was served on. I lifted the top half of the loaf to peek underneath, revealing what looked like enough bacon to completely rebuild a pig.
