What’s new? The Truck Stop


As Ambergris Caye continues to grow as the top tourism destination in Belize, new establishments open to add to the island’s tourism product. Its newest establishment is surely an innovative one! Located just about a mile north of Sir Barry Bowen Bridge, The Truck Stop is a unique fast-food courtyard made out of shipping containers. Eager residents and visitors alike flocked to their location on Saturday, November 21st for some good food, cold drinks and even ice-cream during their soft opening.The Truck Stop Arepa Rasa Cool Cone-1
A concept conceived by the creative duo Ben and Joanna Popik, The Trucks Stop’s construction started early this year. Now fully operational, the establishment offers two food stalls, an ice-cream stall and a fully stocked bar. The outdoor food court features ample picnic style seating and even a palapa on the water facing Ambergris Caye’s western skies, perfect for that sunset view.The Truck Stop Arepa Rasa Cool Cone-2
At The Truck Stop, you have a choice from the bold South American inspired cuisine of the ‘Arepas’ stall, or the spicy fusions at Asian themed ‘Rasa’ stall, both equally delicious. Popular dishes include Arepas’ La Cubana Sandwich and Rasa’s Mie goreng (egg noodles). If you want to beat the heat, head on over to ‘Cool Cone’ for a couple scoops of their tasty ice-cream from the Ice Cream Shoppe.

The Truck Stop is open from Wednesdays to Sundays from 11AM to 8PM. For more information email [email protected]. This is definitely a spot you don’t want to miss while on Ambergris Caye!
