Belize City, like the country, is small, so it is a little surprising to find out that it has quite a large variety of places to eat. Visitors can enjoy fresh seafood and Belizean cuisine, but there are also ethnic restaurants such as Chinese, Indian, Lebanese, and other international cuisine. When cruise ships arrive at Belize City, be prepared: restaurants become crowded especially at lunch time. Nerie’s serves Belizean cuisine and is quite popular with the locals. Some of the dishes include lobster, escabeche soup with chicken, lime, and onions, chirmole with chicken and a chili-chocolate sauce, and rice and beans. Photo: Kenishirotie/Fotolia
