|The fruit and veggie guy came by again, so we got some more produce. Can anyone guess what the two items on the left are?|
(Cara likes it but had never before seen it in its raw form.)
|After much debate, we decided on Hopkins Smoky Grill because none of us had been there,|
and we heard it had good reviews.
|This is their cute, hand-written menu. Prices are in Belize dollars, so it's half the cost in US dollars.|
|It's a cute little place with a great location right at the main junction in Hopkins.|
|We were the first dinner guests, though it filled up later on.|
|Complimentary chips and salsa (pretty good, really - it had some zing).|
|Eric's Jerk Conch with Salad and Veggie Rice |
Eric also couldn't finish his dish because it was too spicy (though delicious), but he made it in an egg sandwich the next day
and loved it.

In the local Belizean restaurants they bring the food out as it is done, so it may be that not everybody is eating at the same time. That was certainly true this night, and as it turned out, Cara's food didn't arrive until everybody was done eating, the plates had been cleared, and the smokers had already enjoyed their after dinner cigarettes. We didn't end up leaving the restaurant until about 9:45 pm. So, it was a long dinner adventure, but everybody agreed that the server and bartender were wonderful, and the food was worth the wait.
