We are all familiar with the Paletas Cart, the Annies Pastries Cart, the Raspado (Shaved Ice/Snow Cone) Cart and the Fresh Fruit Cart; but are you familiar with the Empanadas Cart? Well actually its just don Corneta on his bike selling freshly fried fish empanades. Mr. Leonel Lara, locally known as 'Corneta" is known by locals to ride his bicycle down the streets of San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye, Belize selling delicious empanadas (or panades "in Creole"). Those craving the Belizean treat in the afternoon just keep a watchful eye or wait to hear his bell to rush outside and enjoy an afternoon snack. So now you know - watch out for Mr. Corneta on his bike, carrying a red cooler and a bagful of onion curtido and hot sauce. YUM!!
