Note: This was actually yesterday, but we’ve been having internet issues.
Today I tried a lobster from King Kabobs. “King” is a familiar face on Caye Caulker…one I remember from my previous trips. I’ve heard good things about his food. He grills up his kabobs right on the beach that parallels Front Street. We arrived at noon and he was just getting the grill started. We told him what we wanted and he said to come back in 20 minutes. I had forgotten about “Belize Time” until we came back 30 minutes later and our food was nowhere near done. It worked out great because I met a couple from Australia and got some great tips for that part of my adventure. I’m guessing it was another 20 minutes before our kabobs were ready.
They smelled and looked delicious. But…I think we should have waited until the charcoal had been lit for a while before ordering. Unfortunately, our kabobs tasted quite a bit like a combination of charcoal and lighter fluid…something I think would have mellowed out had we not ordered as soon as he opened.
The sauce on the kabobs was great (almost like a sweet barbeque) and even enhanced the coconut rice and beans. And, although I’m not a huge fan of coleslaw I thought his was fantastic.
Overall, I would try his kabobs again…I’d just wait until the grill was sufficiently heated up. Besides…the price was great…$7.50 US.
