Never eating here again ! When I opened my food a fly flew out and out of this same dish there were eggs from that fly! Absolutely disgusting.

Decent food, the place is nice and cozy, a little hard to spot because of its location, the meat stew was really good, the fried steak was a little hard for my taste but, overall a good place.

I'm no expert in Chapin cuisine, but when I tasted that pepián the first time, I knew I was tasting something unique and very delicious. The texture, the flavors of the herbs, the chiilies....it all came together perfectly. Who knew Guatemalan cuisine was this good?? Why isn't it marketed as Guatemalan? Guatemalan cuisine is much more than what other Central American countries have to offer. Check out this place if you want a truly delicious and unique culinary experience.

It took me right back to my time in Antigua, Guatemala. The handmade corn tortillas are delicious and the soups warm the body and the soul. La Bamba is a true gem of Silver Spring.

La Bamba is a hidden gem in downtown Silver Spring. I ate here for lunch a few weeks ago and I loved it! The pupusas are so good! I also tried their shrimp and rice in white wine sauce; I had to take it home because the portions are huge. Equally satisfying! I was there for lunch during the week, so I could only try one drink, but the sangria did not disappoint! I definitely want to come back and try more of their menu/drink options. This is a cute little family-style restaurant. My waitress was really nice, I highly recommend!

(4) ~ very good overall Guatemalan Food & Service. Definitely recommend:) Notes: The Parking Garage behind them is $0.70 per hour which is very inexpensive:) Guatemalan Food is different from Mexican, less spicy and more flavorful:) The Food here is also very economical in comparison to surrounding restaurants. Love their Pupusas, both Bean & Cheese & Pork & Cheese...probably the best I've had...so far;) DRINKS: ** Water(tap) = (4) very good, must be filtered;) ** Maranon(cashew fruit juice) = very good & unique;) ** Margarita(rocks & salt) = (4) very good FOOD: ** Homemade Green Hot Sauce = (5) Excellent! They brought it out with the Pupusas;) It's very flavorful. ** Pupusas(Pork & Cheese) = (4.25) Very good, probably the best I've had...so far;) ** Pupusas(Bean & Cheese) = (4.25) Very good, probably the best I've had...so far;) ** Potato Salad(side) = (4) very good and shareable ** Platano con Mole, Ajonjolin(dessert) = (4) really unique in a good way;)lol ** Costilla de Res(Beef Ribs) = (4) very good & very filling;) * Chips & Salsa = (3.75) Good * Chuchitos = (3.5) good
