City walk sampling Central American/Belizean foods. (Vegetarian/Vegan/Gluten-Free friendly) We will sample at least 6 - 8 Belizean favorite dishes, all by local vendors and you will learn the history and preparation techniques of each, as we enjoy. Our restaurant is the only one in town that features handmade classic Belizean Tamales so we discuss these, then each person gets a bottled water, and we venture out to a local taco stand, then walk a few blocks to an authentic tortilla factory to taste hot tortillas direct from the ovens. We continue around town to sample Belizean favorites of local foods, everything from street foods to Belizean Chocolate and Homemade Belizean Rum Creams. We can also show you how handmade tortillas are made for quesadillas and burritos and a Belizean favorite - Coconut Buns. We will make 5 or 6 additional stops before returning to the starting point. During the stroll, we experience at least six of the following (depending on the day and taste of the participants): 1) Watch hand-made Papusas being made & sample (El Salvadorian fare) 2) Belizean Breakfast Tacos 3) Classic Belizean Chicken, Rice & Beans 4) Central American Paletas (all natural popsicles made by hand from fresh fruit) 5) Salbutes 6) Garnaches 7) Tomalitos (Ducunu) 8) Belizean Rum Creams 9) Belizean Meat Pies 10) Coconut Tarts 11) Classic Belizean Tamales

We believe travel is about discovery. Venturing onto that side street calling your name, popping through the open door, following delicious smells to a new food stall. Straying off the beaten path, and into a new world. Finding the extra-ordinary, through food, culture, conversation. At our restaurant, Iguana Juan’s, we offer a different view of the island, upstairs, overlooking the pulse of local life on Back Street. Filled with the flavors of Belize, tacos, garnaches, tostadas, meat pies, rum creams and fresh fruit paletas, Back Street and the center of town offers a friendly, welcoming vibe and a fabulous culinary adventure. We'd like to share that with you. We'd like you to meet our neighbors.
We will start you off with a bottle of water on your arrival and water will be available at some of the stops along the way…
Starting at Iguana Juan’s Restaurant, we venture off to introduce you to our neighbors, local food stall owners. We'll sample Belizean breakfast tacos, Garnaches, Salbutes & other “street food”. We stop at the tortilla factory & enjoy one “hot off the press”, meet a local “Belizean Rum Cream” maker, sample handmade Papusas, enjoy some cocoa beans & sample Belizean chocolate. We'll also share the best local restaurants for classic Belizean foods
最多可有10位年满12周岁的参与者参加。 We are walking with numerous stops to rest and enjoy some food & drink, but overall walk is about 1 1/2 miles (custom tours might be longer).
I am an American, living in Belize for almost 5 years. My wife and I own/operate a restaurant on the “locals street”, just outside the tourist district. Then I share local foods via local food stalls & Belizean owned small stands for an authentic Belizean experience.
