Food in Belize

Well I am back from a week of diving at Ambergris Caye in Belize. The diving was great fun, and I got to see a lot of sharks and sting rays.

As most guide books indicate, Ambergris is not know for its food. Fortunately fresh lobster, snapper and shrimp do not require complicated preparations to be perfectly delicious. I had grilled lobster tail twice. I think I will try grilling lobster at home on my grill when the weather warms up. I also had lobster ceviche a couple of times. Everyday I had some seafood or fish.

Much to my chagrin, Belizeans have a fondness for instant coffee (gasp!). Their penchant for Nescafe must be a remnant of British colonialism. Fortunately an upscale resort called Victoria House has wonderful breakfasts and real coffee! I went there a couple of time for breakfast.

My other favorite place to eat was a Jamaican restaurant that had excellent jerk chicken.
