Eating at KIDS Restaurant in Antigua, Guatemala.
KIDS Restaurant is a restaurant on the outskirts of Antigua staffed almost entirely by children. The kids shop for food, cook, serve, and entertain. In Americaland we’d probably call it a sweatshop. But here, it’s called a charity.
Kidding aside, it’s actually a wonderful project. Kids are brought in to learn and practice English, social skills, and business. Our little server was shy and quiet, but he was adorable. Our French-themed 3-course meal included onion soup, orange-glazed chicken, and a crepe. Plus we got to witness a fake wedding and a little bit of break dancing.
Totally worth it for a $10 night out.
