For those following along on Instagram, Chef Nyesha Arrington is one busy woman. Between speaking on panels about improving the food system, cheffing at the Beard House, supporting sustainable food at the farmers’ market, and a zillion other things, she also took a magical trip to Belize with us to explore the country in partnership with the Belize Tourism Board. Here’s a peep at some of her personal highlights from the adventure, which you can find rolling out over in our video section right this way.

April’s Snack Shack (Punta Gorda)

"This is a good first stop since it’s so centrally located. When you arrive in Belize, and you're a little discombobulated, you can go get a typical Belizean breakfast: eggs, fry jacks, and beans. It’s a place to get a feel of what you're going to experience and the energy of the country."

Luba Laruga (Hopkins)

"Luba Laruga makes the most delicious veggie breakfast burritos featuring all the flavors of the traditional Belizean breakfast, wrapped up in burrito form. I wish every place were like this. It's in this cute little cove that is super clean and well maintained. You walk up and it's six hammocks and then picnic tables close to the water with music playing and there’s definitely a vibe there."

Bertha’s Tamales (Hummingbird Highway)

"This is a little spot to stop for chicken tamales that is so good! The tamales are fire! They’ve got a super moist texture and the chicken is well seasoned. You have to get the hot pepper sauce–it was probably one of the most delicious ones that I had on the entire trip. I still remember exactly how it tasted."
