For a tiny village of only about 1000 people, Placencia in Southern Belize has more than its fair allotment of delicious food. Placencia has charm and food to spare. In fact I got so many suggestions about where to eat and where to drink that I’m going to return to continue eating…very soon.
Here are some of the good eats you can find in Placencia. Though only there for two days, I found some of my favorites more than once. I’ve always been a dessert lover but I’m finding that if you eat a few of them, they are a great substitute for a meal. Who knew?
My very first morning after a TORRENTIAL rainstorm all night long, I walked outside at 6:30am to a fresh brewed cup of coffee and some very friendly folks. I couldn’t be happier to see Brewed Awakenings.
The Americano was just what I needed. And this list of shakes? Yum…it’s on my list for the next trip.
Both alcohol containing…
Family member were coming in and out…these guys were great. Here is Dawn in an action shot. Next up my trip to Harvest Caye but I need some quick breakfast taco fortification before I boarded our vessel. It was a grey day but the rain THANKFULLY held off.
It’s good to know that I can get my go-to breakfast food anywhere in Belize. But Placencia, I’m sorry to say that based on my one sampling, San Pedro has got you beat in the dolla taco category. Good but not in my top 10!
With all the classic Belizean sides, I reluctantly ordered what they had left. White meat. Blah…dry dusty white meat. But this chicken was TENDER and yummily spiced. I finished this whole plate.
For dinner I wanted dessert and on a recommendation, found Wendy’s Creole Cooking at the south end of the main street. I heard their sweets were divine…
Pineapple upside down cake, key lime pie, freshly grated coconut flan…oh my.
This dessert was absolutely thick, creamy, almost cheese-cakey heaven. At this point in my trip, this was THE BEST DESSERT I’d ever had in Belize. Bar none. Coconut flan at Wendy’s.
Sorry…as usual night time photography is not my thing.
And that was just one day’s eating. I was working for you! There is more to tell you and I have 1000 cute pictures of Placencia. But more tomorrow.
If you’ve got great suggestions for my next trip, please comment and let me know.
