Early this week, Jeff and I headed south of San Pedro town to Black and White Garifuna Restaurant & Cultural Center slightly ashamed that we hadn't been there before. The owner, Ms Julia Martinez has created such a unique spot on Ambergris Caye - a warm and invited indoor and outdoor space highlighting one of Belize's most unique cultures. Plus - the food is soo good, I should have been recommending Black and White Restaurant to visitors for years! The Garifuna Restaurant is way more than just a place to eat�it's a gift shop, an informational hub, a culture center, a multi-roomed bar, kitchen and outside dining garden. We really enjoyed everything about Ms Julia's business.

Black and White is located less than 1 mile south of San Pedro town. Just south of the gas station but just before Caribbean Villas Hotel (across the street). You will see the large bright signs on the road�you just turn in. Down the sandy path, there is plenty of parking. Outside there are lots of tables, some under palapa coverings, some set up for larger parties of 10 or 15. It's all very colorful and pretty and looks very pretty at night. Black and White Garifuna Restaurant is the only spot in San Pedro where you can find a full menu of Garifuna dishes. Good-sized dishes of hearty, soul food made with very local flavors. We went for two of the most popular Garifuna dishes. Bundiga and Hudut. The food, like the culture, is a blend of Caribbean and African. Very basic, and some might say plain, ingredients like coconut, plantains, local root veggies but together�they are so rich and delicious.
