A number of cheap comedores in Vueva Ocotepeque  serve up good plato típico, eggs, chicken-and-rice plates, and other dishes. One recommended joint is Comedor San Marino, on the main highway that runs through town and across the street from the Congolón bus station. It has great carne asada (much better than a lot of the carne asada in Honduras), chicken, and chorizo. All meals come with beans, toasted tortillas, fried plantains, cheese, sometimes avocado, and chismol, a condiment made of chopped tomato, bell pepper, onion, and cilantro. A dinner plate plus a drink is about $3.80. It’s delicious.
There are also plenty of places to get baleadas. Local favorite is the kiosk located in the park, which is moving into a restaurant location across the street from the Liberal Party headquarters.
Hondutel is across from the Hotel Sandoval, open daily 7 a.m.–9 p.m., while Honducor is near the square. For Internet access, try CiberCafé, around the corner from Hotel Internacional, on the same street as the police station (US$1/hour), or head to the library, where you can use Internet for free 2–3 p.m. Monday–Friday.
