Belizean Paradise Is a Journey Through a Dozen Cultures in Mid-City

If you’ve heard of Belize, it’s probably from one of those high-end House Huntersshows, or maybe from a resort trip someone on your block took a few years ago. The coastal Central American country isn’t big enough to be a consistent player on the world stage, and owing to its location — pushed out towards the Caribbean waters by Guatemala and the Yucatan Peninsula — it’s not as easy of a getaway for Americans as, say, Cancun or the Bahamas, though English is the official language and their Belizean dollar is pegged to the US currency at a 2-to-$1 rate.

Belize is, in many ways, a Caribbean paradise, full of lush interior jungles and sweepingly beautiful coastline. Oh, and the food is delicious too.

Which brings us, aptly enough, to Belizean Paradise, a what’s-new-is-old eatery on La Brea that garnered some small amount of press several years ago under the moniker Flavors of Belize.
