Enjoy a taste of South America right here in Belmopan! Coco Gardens is an Argentinian restaurant located right in the family’s backyard. It’s a great atmosphere with picnic tables lined up under coconut trees throughout the yard. It’s laid back yet chic. The Argentinian Asado is out of this world. While the drinks menu is an experience in itself. Each cocktail is presented as a work of art and their speciality is ice cream cocktails.

Simple Life

If you’re looking for more of an Asian flare, Simple Life, is the capital’s best Taiwanese restaurant. You can dine in or enjoy the newly renovated outdoor dining option. Try their Chicken Chop, which is a Taiwanese staple in this list of Belmopan eats. This delicious fried chicken is coated with sweet potato flour that makes it wonderfully crispy and yummy, rivaling any fried chicken in the capital. Not to mention, the staff here is truly pleasant making your experience a delight all around.
