Belizean food?

I'm looking to try some food from Belize. Previous posts on this site say there are no Belizean restaurants in NY, but I read something on another site about one in the south Bronx called Yoli's or Yoly's. Does anyone know if this exists? Where it is? If not, does anyone have any other ideas about where to find Belizean food? Might there be some at the West Indian Day Parade? Thanks.

  1. I haven't seen any at the WIDP in the past, but you never know - there's a heavy Panamanian contingent, so you may find some Belizean fare, too.

    1. There is a restaurant in Queens called the Village Pot... the food is excellent!

        Hey, thanks! I've been looking for this for a while. Maybe I'll go this weekend.

      2. Wow - awesome find!

        What did you have?

        1. LOL...I tried it All!!! I had garnaches, panades, salbutes(EXECELLENT), conch fritters(SUPER EXCELLENT-it's my favorite), stew chicken dinner it was all made to order and very tasty. I even took home some johnny cake and powder bun, which was also very good.

          It's a small establishment so don't try going with the whole family, but the staff is super friendly and the food is good.

            I checked out the menu and want to try it, but I didn't see any prices...what's the general range? I can't imagine it would be incredibly expensive but...

              Do you know if this place serves banana fritters?
