West End Food scene
While our native islander cuisine is super tasty, it is limited to FISH-steam, fried, minced or in a brown gravy, conch soup, stewed chicken, stewed beef and oxtail, coconut dinner/tapado a coconut milk based stew with fish & salted pork, root vegetables such as yucca, malanga/taro, and breadfruit, green bananas, and dumplings is inspired by the Garifuna traditional dish, the Machuca. Side dishes, usually consist of a congri of beans/rice made in coconut milk,, fried, boiled or baked bananas, plantains, boil or fried yucca, simple cabbage salad, and yams. Fritters for breakfast with homemade jams, and tons of dessert cakes. Native islanders certainly do like our sweets!! You probably wont see 'bush' cakes on the menu around, but if you get a chance to try a yucca, malanga/taro cake, or corn custard, do so! Fortunately, West End and the rest of the island has a diverse offering on menus..From elegant/sophisticated Oasis, outside the center, and the world famous Pazzo Italian restaurant to the baleada lady on the street at night,(baleada is a mainland Honduras import made with fresh handmade flour tortilla with beans, carne asada and other fillings, similar to burritos, you find up north), delicious island style food, coffee shops, tacos stands , authentic Italian pizza, typical North American burgers, and all that jazz in between!!
A West End favorite , and its very close to Penthouse Dola, the owner is a native who has done an excellent job of creating delicious, but simple food, in a family & pets friendly environment at a great value. We also recommend her curry chicken and key lime pie is to die for! Best rotisserie chicken on the island.

Attraction worth visiting, especially if you are traveling with kids! Book a tour and request pickup, drive, walk or catch a water taxi from West End to the park, there isn't a dock, so you will have to get out the water taxi on the shore...
