A Richmond eatery recently got a shoutout from KQED food editor Luke Tsai.

In a recent article, Tsai said he “stumbled upon Richmond’s Antojitos Guatemaltecos” at 653 23rd St. and enjoyed the Guatemalan rice tamale, which he’d never tried before. He described the dish, which is “drizzled with a little bit of the cart’s housemade hot sauce,” as exceptional.

“And they’re just one of a slew of tasty, hard-to-find dishes customers can score at this little Guatemalan food cart, which posts up outside a 23rd Street panadería five nights a week,” he wrote.

Read Tsai’s story about the eatery here, which he reports is operated by Yury Aguilar and her husband Carlos Pool and sisters Marleny Aguilar and Yasmin Edelma.

Standard reporter Mike Kinney stopped by to snap photos of the eatery this evening and remarked how it certainly does appear like a popular spot to grab a bite.
