When the opportunity arises to sample some good food, trust me, I never pass it up. So when Kenny invited us over to his new place, The Red Chili’s, you can bet your bottom I was dragging Janelle and running over!
While The Red Chili’s IS an Asian style restaurant, it is NOT the typical “Chinese fast food” we’re used to in Belize.

You don’t order and leave in 5 minutes, oh no! Grab a seat and sit down because the food is made to order and cooked to perfection…you may want to sit and enjoy, but you can carry out too!

We went there on a Friday and that only means one thing…BUFFET! Yes, in addition to the normal menu, Kenny does his buffet every Friday and Saturday, from noon to 3PM and from 5- 8PM, but try to make an effort to beat the hungry fleet, because this stuff has a way of disappearing!

You get to choose 3 combinations ranging from $8-$15! After sampling meat after meat, from beef to curry to the classic fried chicken, I decided to have the Soybean Pork, with fried rice, and steamed vegetables.

Of course I couldn’t pass up the egg rolls that Kenny insisted we try….and boy am I glad he did! From the minute I took my first bite I was sold. Now I’m no chef (trust me! I’ve said it before-I burn water) but I could appreciate these rolls! The flavors were well balanced, no ingredient over powering the other and best of all not greasy at all!

Janelle loved the Soybean Pork too, so we broke our long standing tradition of ordering different meals to get an opportunity to pig out on the others’ plate (haha, yeah we really do that!)….The pork was soo good we each had to have our fair share! The only difference is she opted for chow mien over fried rice.

Each side was perfectly seasoned with just the perfect amount of soy sauce, and had lots of fresh julienned vegetables and little chunks of sweet Chinese sausage. What a treat!

After sitting there battling to finish our buffet choices, we decided to bring back a doggy bag to the office, where we’d spend every other minute sneaking in bites of the “good stuff.”

Kenny even sent over egg rolls for the rest of the starving staff. Honestly, that’s just one of the many reasons we love him.

I’m a sucker for a fuzzy face, a feathered face, a face with fins or even one with scales! I am in love with the creatures and the flora that are synonymous with Belize and every opportunity I have to learn more about them and explore their wild habitats I am there! I’m the happiest when I’m snorkeling the reef and swimming with turtles, however my passion is not just limited to critters! Laced throughout this compact jungle gem of a country live the Kriol, Maya, Garifuna, Mestizo and Spanish people, and experiencing each culture, especially their celebrations is one of my favorite pastimes.
