Jade Garden in San Pedro, about 1998
Man i LOVED their food.... and the caye lime pie... oh goodness gracious...
The Jade Garden Restaurant first opened for business in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye on September 1, 1981. It was located within the old Barrier Reef Hotel, formerly known as the Blake House and is now the Heritage Bank, situated in front of the town’s municipal pier. This family owned restaurant was managed and operated by Sue Wong and her mother, better known and remembered as Mama Sue. Mama Sue ran the kitchen and produced mouth-watering dishes of Cantonese cuisine, steaks and seafood and caye lime pie. In 1990, the Jade Garden relocated into its own building about a mile south of town center. Business continued, as usual, until Mama Sue retired in 2005.
