Salbutes

salbutes

Salbutes is a delicious “on the go” kind of food and is typically eaten for lunch in Belize. It is considered a quick fast food that can be purchased from fast food restaurants countrywide and is eaten typically with the hands. It is believed that Salbutes originated from the Mestizo culture but it is a Belizean favorite for all cultures.
