Honduran food does not standout to many first-time visitors. Rice, beans, and tortillas accompany almost every plate, and often, the quality differs little between a streetside stand and high-end restaurant. Tegucigalpa's dining scene is considerably more varied when compared to the rest of the country, though it lacks the quality and depth of other Latin American capitals. A growing number of mediocre international casual chains are popping up in the city, but there are a few strong independent standouts serving sushi, Italian, Mexican, Peruvian, and other cuisines.

Inexpensive -- On the patio and inside the small market in front of Iglesia Las Dolores, as well as in other locations around the city center, food stalls sell some of the tastiest dishes in the capital for the cheapest prices. You'll find Honduran baleadas, El Salvadoran pupusas, grilled chicken and beef kebabs, and the occasional intestine. As always with street food, try to stick to the cleaner stalls and the ones the locals are going to. Credit cards aren't accepted, and most meals cost between L10 and L60.
