Meet the Dukunu Guy and Sample His Tasty Treats
He is one of the island personalities that make San Pedro, on Ambergris Caye, so charming and unique. And, to all who visit, and even live on the island, the sound of his voice signals that a tasty treat is close by. Most street vendors have a horn or bell announcing their way down the streets of town so that one can rush to buy their delicious treats, but this particular island character has quite an interesting jingle that gets stuck in your head. Mark Anthony Fitzgibbon, most commonly known as “Soft and Tender,” sings his jingle down the street with much enthusiasm and delight. From the smallest child to the oldest adult, everyone knows the jingle “Hot Du Cu Nu, Hot Tamalitos”—a local Belizean delight.
