Belize – a culture melting pot. And, just as diverse as the many cultures who have chosen to call this their home, so are the many dishes being served in the various restaurants sprinkled throughout the caye. Whether you want something light, are starving, something sweet, or want traditional, believe us – Ambergris Caye has it all for you.
Having had the honor and pleasure to have visited many of the local restaurants around the Caye, we know for certain that you will definitely find something that your palate will truly adore.
The traditional rice and beans, chicken and veggies (ordinarily served with potato salad).
If you are penny pinching, food found at many of the downtown “holes in the wall” are full of flavor and just as healthy as can be. Wanna splurge? Well, there is no shortage of steak, Italian and international houses that offer you five star dining under the twinkling stars while you enjoy the Caribbean breeze.
Fiery and hot as the very tropical sun, cool and refreshing as the sapphire waters that lap against the white beaches, Belizean food will appeal to all taste buds.
One mistake you can make is to go back home without trying the cultural dishes. The hudut (pictured above) is a traditional Garifuna dish. Traditional Garifuna cooking involves the use of a lot of fish, ground foods (such as the cassava and yams), coconut and seasonings.
With dishes served in diverse manners, finger licking is not the word to describe the blend of flavors. From appetizers to main dishes and ending in delectable desserts -- Food in Belize is beyond great. With so many choices a second, third and fourth trip to the country is a must.
