Hi, I’m Emily. Welcome to Eats by Em!
After five years living in Chicago, my husband and I have recently moved to Antigua, Guatemala. While we both work in the hotel industry, my first love will always be food. I love to try new restaurants (and revisit my favorites again and again) and create new recipes in the kitchen!
Why are you living in Antigua? My husband grew up in Guatemala, and after living in Europe for several years, he moved to Chicago, where we met. After living there for 5 years, we decided to leave the hustle and bustle of the city in an effort to try something new and see each other more often (fellow industry people can relate). Antigua is just 45 minutes from Guatemala City, where he grew up. A UNESCO protected world heritage site, we are lucky to live near ruins, markets with colorful Guatemalan textiles, an international food scene, and of course, the beautiful volcano views that Guatemala is known for.
What can I expect to read about on your blog? Daily life as an expat, restaurant reviews, city guides, occasional recipes, etc!
