Miss Emma And Her Organic Farm
I canít believe that it took me 8 years in Belize to visit Miss Emmaís Garden and Restaurant. This tiny lady and her farm are a national treasure.
Miss Emma is a 74 year old Filippino woman with more energy than most young adults. She came to Belize in 1992 as the chef for the Taiwanese Ambassador and has been here ever since. Her gardens and orchards are beyond stunning and she may just be the most generous woman that Iíve ever met.
It may seem a bit off the beaten path but itís easy to find. At about Mile 16 on the Southern Highway, just about 15 minutes past the Hopkins junction, turn in at the Sanctuary Belize sign. A mile or two down a wide dirt road, youíll cross a little wooden bridge. Take the first right and head up to the guard boothÖ
Her restaurant is filled with memorabilia with photos of her with Prime Minister Dean Barrow and George PriceÖ
