Lily’s Treasure Chest is one of the oldest restaurants on Ambergris Caye – a waitress there estimated 30, maybe 35 years old. I’m going to need to get the full scoop on that…
Set right on the water across from Amigos Del Mar dive shop and water taxi mega-dock, the location couldn’t be more convenient and the view is…just the perfect San Pedro view.
I received a tip from a friend that some delicious fried chicken was being served at Lily’s. Enough said. I KNOW that Lily’s serves the best classic ceviche on the island. You MUST try the conch…fresh and delicious. They do a mean breakfast on the beach for sure but for some reason, I’d never tried the chicken. Time for that to change.
juicy, tender and well seasoned also. Good marinating…or possibly brining. This chicken is delicious. And is THE BEST FRIED CHICKEN IN SAN PEDRO! Congratulations Lily’s Treasure Chest! This most definitely earns you the SanPedroScoop sunglasses of approval.
At $19bzd, it is a bit higher on the price scale but with the delicious fries and the view? I’d pay it again and again. This is delicious delicious chicken whether you are judging it against fried chicken here in Belize or in the States.
And if you can…start your meal with the ceviche and end it with their flan. Divine. Maybe you and a friend can share this turbo-meal I’ve planned for you.
BUT, the best in Belize still remains on Caye Caulker. $9bzd Fried Chicken Friday – chicken with mashed potatoes at local joint Syd’s Restaurant.
