We love food, and we came to El Fogon based on the recommendation of the manager at our resort. It's tiny, but the staff and food were awesome. While ordering lunch, our friendly waiter was explaining the special of the day, tamalitos de chaya, when a woman sitting at the table next to us interrupted to sell us further on the dish's merits. Turns out, she's the owner and she not only pitched the special, but she also went in the kitchen to bring us a taste of Belizean smoked fish (think dry rub BBQ not lox) to try. It was fantastically flavorful. At dinner after I exclaimed how excellent the conch fritters were, Luis, the other owner, came over to share his recipe going from how the fishermen collect the conch to how the honey mustard dipping sauce is also made from scratch. If you're looking for local food with friendly service, this is your place!
