The patio at Flayva's in San Ignacio Belize


#22 Burns Ave.

If you have a guide book, you will no doubt see this location listed as Eva's. As of February '10, it's now known as Flayva's. It's still more or less the same old place. The art has been changed and the tables are nicer, and it's has a new set of owners (mind you Eva's changed hands quite a few times also). It's just off the main intersection right where everyone comes and goes.

***They deliver in downtown San Ignacio***

Hot Taco is nice little Belize style fast food place. The Owner has created (from scratch) an amazing but simple menu. It's rather like if you had taco bell, but with a little bit of home in it. Like I said all the recepies and you can tell. They currently have soft and hard tacos, quesadillas and a weekly special.

Ko-ox Han-nah also has a deli located just across the street. They sell a variety of cheeses, meats, pasteries and snacks. We suggest one of sandwiches. They come on nice big slices of home made wheat bread and you get to pick your cheese. They're also just 6bz.
The Palate in San Ignacio, Belize.  View of the corner table with paintings.

The Palate Grill

West st. behind Courts
M-F 11a-7p/Sat 11a-9p

The Palate is a little place located just behind the Courts building. The entire place can only seat maybe 10, that's even with it great little bamboo patio. One of the best things about the place (other than the food of course) is that all the paintings are done by the owner Ken. He's also the guy who grills up your choice of meat. Fish, beef or pork are 10bz; or chicken for 8bz; and that price includes a side of brown rice, grilled veggies and a side salad. If you are vegetarian, let him know and he'll grill you up something special.

The Front of Pop's Restaurant

Pop's Restaurant

West St. Behind Courts
6:30-3 M-Su

Pop's Restaurant is one of the few places in San Ignacio that serves breakfast all day. The feel of the place is what you would get if a Denny's and the Caribbean had a love child - Booths, bright colors and a very local feel. You won't get anything fancy, but you definitely won't get anything bad.

Chinese food

all over
M-Su 9a(ish)-12a(ish)

So it might be kind of an odd reality, but probably the most common food in towns in Belize is Chinese food. Most all of the corner stores are owned by the Chinese and there are lots of shops that also have restaurants. There are four main restaurant's in downtown. Delicious Seafood is on burns and this is where you go to buy cigarettes at night. Tai San is just up the street and it's in a neat building. Rose's, well... don't really know anyone who eats there. Finally if you want to eat, go to Maxim's. It's on Bullet Tree Rd. 3 blocks from the main intersection. Most everything they serve is good. Small portion to go are bigger than to have.
