Yes that's right I said it...Cow Foot Soup.  While most Belizeans reading this will probably start salivating when thinking about this and even more when they see the pictures, others from outside countries might go "EEEwwwwww".  It doesn't sound delicious or appetizing but once you've tried it you will most definately change your mind, or you might not, but like the name of this blog says "No knock it til you try it".

Cow Foot Soup is made all over Belize, some claim the best while some are the best. If you used to live in Belize city or still do and was old enough to go out about 10-15 years ago you still dream about "Jokers" Restaurant. This was a small small shak about 10'x10' and they opened around 4pm and stayed open til about 4am. If you were friends, about 5 or 6 am lol. Now, there are certain things we eat when we are hungover. The English have their English fry up which if you know what it is will give u a heart attack unless you were hungover, and Belizeans have Cow Foot Soup. Yes, by far the BEST hangover (Goma in kriol) cure that ever existed.

Now a days, The Admiral's Cafe in Belize city at the Municipal Airport to me, has the best Cow Foot Soup. But, today we won't be featuring theirs, although you must definitely try it. Another good spot is D's Diner in front of the KHMH hospital on the corner of Coney Drive in Belize city. But both D's Diner and Admiral's Cafe only do it a couple days of the week so you might want to check with them. Today we'll be looking at Cow Foot Soup Village style. By village style i mean cooked on fire hearth (Fiya haat in kriol). If you aren't sure what that is, it's an open flame on coal, like BBQ-ing a soup...the smokey flavor will stay with you forever. To the point where you will say "they cooked this on a stove, weh happen to them?".

So, today's recipe is brought to you by... Miss Eunice Escobar, and yes she definitely cooked it on Fiya haat.
