Cheers Restaurant, Belize

My favorite place to eat in Belize is Cheers Restaurant. I am a foodie, and it’s great. It is regular comfort food, not gourmet or trendy… you will love it. Cheers Restaurant is located on the Western Highway just a few miles past the Belize Zoo, on the south side of the road. It’s about 40 minutes from Belize City. So if you are going to the zoo, or continuing on through Belmopa

Picking Apart Caribbean Cuisine

You might think that the Caribbean has just one style of cooking, but that would be as ignorant an assumption as thinking that every European country has the same type of foods. The cuisine of the Caribbean varies from island to island and coast to coast; you must sample a variety of different types from each location to truly get the real feel for Caribbean cooking. One place in particular that y

How to eat like a local Belizian

This post has some great eating advise if you’re heading down to Belize (from fellow Belize blogger LORENZO GONZALEZ.) My favorite part of it was this bit. How true: Rowdy and crowded places equals good food Locals tend to gather around the restaurants they love the most. Follow the noise – hearing people laugh loud, curse in Creole and gossip about their day might not be your kind of

How to make Hudut – a traditional Garifuna stew

The Garifuna people are descendants of Carib, Arawak and West Africans. Today the Garifuna live primarily in Central America along the Western Caribbean coast of Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Honduras, and on the island of Roatán. In the United States, many Garifuna people live in Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Chicago. Our island cooks are all Garifuna women. There is a dish called Hudut th

Chon Saan Palace, Belize City, Belize

We have owned and operated a Belize adventure company since 1986. Our Belize private island, Long Caye at Glover’s Reef, is very remote. Because of this, we can’t sell rooms by the night, the boat only goes 2 days a week. So our packages are all inclusive, and we also include hotels and meals in Belize City on each end of the island trip. For the last fifteen years at least we have taken our g

Dukunu recipe – Mayan tamales!

One of the wonderful things (among many) about having an island resort in Belize is discovering the food of Belize. Many years ago I discovered a wonderful Belizean dish: Dukunu. We don’t serve it on the island because it is too labor intensive : ( But at a locals Belize City restaurant, like Ceni’s, you can sometimes find it. Dukunu is a fabulous dish! And you can make these marvelous

Secret sauce recipe: Fish Tacos!

We have a fantastic menu serving Belize food and other great recipes out on the island. I am the one responsible for the menu (with many suggestions incorporated from guests and staff alike), so I LOVE all of the food we serve as a result. I can state that my favorite meal on the island, hands down, is Fish Tacos. I could eat them 3 times a week, they are that good. The reason they are so good (be

Tropical island in Belize makes the news

Usually, the only time a tropical island in Belize makes the news is when a hurricane hits (a rare event) but last week, when Discovery Channel’s new series, Alone In The Wild, featured TV celeb Jason Gardiner stranded alone on a Belize island for 5 days, it became a news story. Apparently, a highlight of his experience was finally catching and eating a fish after failing to do so for five d

Paradise Sweet and Spicy Chicken Recipe

Years ago a guide trainee, whose name escapes me now, was on the island for a couple of weeks. He was a super guy but never did come to work for us; he didn’t quite have enough experience. Much of his work history was in the restaurant business. On one of his last nights on the island he made this chicken dish that everyone flipped out over. I got him to write it down, and we have been serving i
