Chicago’s Garifuna Flavor on Food Channel

We told you last week that a Belizean cuisine restaurant in Chicago would be featured on the Food Network’s hit show, Diners Drive-ins and Dives. The episode aired on Monday night and it definitely put our local dishes on the map as the host, Guy Fieri, as well as the patrons, had rave reviews about every type of food they sampled. Garifuna Flava, a restaurant owned by Rhodel and Yolanda Castillo from Dangriga, has on its menu all your favorites; from garnaches and panades to Hudut, pigtails and of course, rice and beans.  Here’s a snippet from the episode in case you missed it.

    Belizean food is a mixture of so many cultures, which makes it really good and spicy.

    I was in Chicago for a conference this past summer, and we were looking for athnic cuisines and end up in a wonderful mexican Restaurant, but I would have loved the Garifuna restaurant. I am Garifuna living in Upstate NY I never have the opportunity for such an experience. Next I am in Chicago I will visit the restaurant, the food looked so good. Thank you
