The Palm Restaurant & Martini Bar

While discovering the Caribbean waters and the exotic jungles of Belize one can easily be immersed in the grandeur of our country. There is no doubt that part of the intrigue of visiting a new place is experiencing the local cuisine and no matter how much you have explored the area you cannot truly appreciate the flavor of the culture until you have experienced the taste of Belize. As obvious as that may sound, you may find it easier said than done, especially at resort restaurants that are catering to American guests. With nothing but good intentions, many menus are dedicated to American cuisine in an effort to maintain the guest comfort level but inadvertently miss incorporating local dishes.

For Hans Wagenhaus, the new General Manager at The Palms Restaurant at Reef Village, offering local, as well as Central American dishes, is a responsibility to the guests that he takes very seriously. Passionately committed to introducing the guests to the wonders of Belizean meals, the new menu at The Palms does just that with every course served from breakfast through dessert while maintaining a variety of familiar “comfort foods”, some with a Caribbean twist.

Dolphins win first game of the season; Islanders suffer worst defeat in the season

Though they have been defeated from the start of the tournament, the Dolphins walked on the field determined to win their first game on their home turf. When the whistle blew at 2:30 PM in the hot sun, Dolphins made their fist attempt against FC Belize. In less than a minute of the game, Rudolph Flowers capitalized on his opportunity giving the home team a one zip lead. Moving into the second half of the game, both team made numerous attempts inside the sixteen yard box. Despite their attempts, after the 90 minutes of regular playing time, Dolphins kept their one nil lead over the visiting team. The final score was San Pedro Dolphins one (1), FC Belize nil (0). On Sunday Wagiya of Stann Creek will be hosting San Pedro Dolphins in a 4:00 PM game.

Turning to the Belize Bank Super League, the San Pedro Islanders visited San Felipe Village in the Orange Walk District where they faced Barcelona on Thursday night. That game was a back match but was postponed twice. During the first half, the Island boys were down three to nil against Barcelona. In the second half, Barcelona players were merciless against the Islanders and slapped in eight more goals. At the end of the game, Barcelona had won 11 to nil (0) over the Islanders.
Islanders FC
In the regular season, Islanders traveled to Hattieville village on Sunday for a 4:00 PM game. In the first half, the Islanders dominated and controlled the ball game but were unable to capitalize on numerous opportunities. Moving into the second half, the Islanders remained in control of the game until about 25 minutes of the second half when Hattieville took advantage of a rebound in the 16 yards box and scored the only goal of the game. Final score: Hattieville 1, Islanders 0.
On Saturday, Islanders will be hosting Cayo South United at the Ambergris Stadium. Game time is at 6:30PM.
