My family and I will be coming out in April and I was wondering if there are any vegetarian choices at restaurants on AC. I am a vegetarian but the family will eat almost anything. smile

Vegetarian or Vegan? Either way there aren't a whole lot of choices restaurant-wise except salads and such. If you are referring to groceries and eating in, you can buy organic soy milk and a few other soy products. I think Greenhouse sells tofu and TSP. Plenty of spots to buy vegetables and fruit.

There are several options for veggie burritos, quesadillas, that sort of thing.

Also, pasta dishes.

Beans and rice, but if you're a purist ask about the type of cooking oil.

I'm not a vegetarian, but I don't eat much meat, and find there is usually something veggie on almost all menus.

I'm a vegetarian too, and I agree with JeanH that there's usually SOMETHING veggie on the menu. It's generally recommended that you call the restaurant beforehand. Most cooks in Belize are happy to make something custom if they have enough warning.

Legends Burger House, just north of the cut, makes the most AMAZING black bean burgers. As a quasi-vegetarian, until they opened i ate loads of quesedillas, bean burritos and such. Their "Bob Marley" Burger is hearty, delicious, and satisfying (not a bocaburger).

Vegetarian "balanced meals" with some sort of protein are challenging here. I found that to be the case even in the states at least with fast food as I used to eat an awful lot of peanut butter smile

That said, Hummingbird cafe has several Asian fusion type dishes and vegetable sushi rolls and Fido's has a couple of options as well, .

You'll have no problem Soccermedic. There are really lots of excellent vegetarian choices at most restaurants here and everyone is so obliging that if they don't have something you like or want, they really will go out of their way to make something for you specially. Try to experience some of the local vegetables such as cho-cho (chayote) and plantain.
