Joan and Sisters, owned by Elenor and Samuel Bevans, opened over 30 years ago to spread the joy of Elenor and her late sister Joan’s “scratch-made” Kriol cuisine, featuring specialty savories such as mouth-watering meat pies adopted from British cuisine and one of their famous dishes that most people who visit purchase, their Stewed Oxtails.
Saturdays are when Kriols get down to their roots — and tubers. Boil-up is a Belizean Brukdown (multicultural Kriol music and dance), a starchy jam session with pig tail, fish and hard-boiled eggs blended by vinegary tomato sauce. This would get our vote for the national dish of Belize, a plate that melds incongruous ingredients into unifying flavor. This is how Kriols “remember their ancestors”.
