Belize Eats – 5

It was The Pirate’s meal for us. ARRRRR!!!! After driving up to Secret Beach and the northern part of the island, we stayed up north for dinner before driving back south to where we were staying. We stopped in at the Pirate’s Bar and Grill. Once the sun started to set, the place was hopping. We arrived at the in between times, but fortunately, that got us a great seat at the bar, so we could see all the action once it started.

While we were waiting for our meal, we met some American ex-pats who now call Belize home. They were a lot of fun. We told them we had been looking for crocodiles, and they said there is one that camps out in the back of the restaurant. But again, we did not see him. Though we did not see any crocodiles, again, we did see a distant cousin of theirs who was also there for a good meal.

We started off with a Pirate’s Rum. With drinks like this one, it is no wonder that Captain Jack Sparrow had to ask “why is the rum always gone?” It was loaded with rum and packed quite a punch. One was more than enough, but it was very good indeed.

When our meal arrived, we shared it once again. We love doing this, if we can agree on what to eat, which isn’t always the case. We shared another delicious version of Belizian ceviche as well as some fish with coconut rice and plantains.

With full tummies and being full of rum, we decided to hang out in the hammocks for a bit. As with all the other restaurants we dined at, Pirates‘ had delicious food and was full of fun personality and charm.

Thank you for yet another deliciously fun time. We will most probably see you again the next time we are in Belize. Save some rum for us. πŸ™‚
