El Fogon

In San Pedro, a town on Belize's northern island of Ambergris Caye, the Mestizo traditions are strong. The Mestizo people are descendants of the Maya and the Spanish, and when those two cultures mixed, a new one was born. You'll find many Mestizo people in San Pedro, but you'll hardly find a better Mestizo restaurant than El Fogon, a spot owned by a local woman known as Miss Suzanna and run by her daughter. All of the food is cooked in a traditional outdoor oven (fogon means "kitchen hearth"), and everything is delicious. Try the salbutes, a tacolike dish made with fried tortillas, with a texture that's somehow both soft and crunchy, or the pig tail with split peas. And the coconut rice is to die for.
