By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belize is promoting its cuisine in food trucks around Taiwan as part of the Central America Puncar Tour.
The Embassy of Belize said Ambassador Dr. Candice Pitts participated in the launch of the Central America Puncar Tour.
“The food trucks of the Central America allies go on tour around Taiwan for 6 weeks, from April 8th until May 29th, and making a total of 70 stops at various locations—with Belize accounting for 26 of those stops,” said the Belize Embassy.
“Belize’s puncar features Belizean breakfast with fried jacks, meat pies, fever grass tea, and cocktails made from Belizean rums.”
The tour which offers two dishes and a beverage free of charge each day is organized by the Taiwan Central America Trade Office (CATO) along with the embassies.
The Belize Embassy said the puncar tour’s objective is to promote cultural understanding and exchanges between Taiwan and its diplomatic allies. Honduras and Guatemala are also participating in the tour.
“What better way to reach, connect, and bond with people than through food, that universal language of Love?” said Ambassador Pitts at the opening ceremony.
“Touring Taiwan with Belizean food is fascinating because it aligns with one of the missions of our Belize Embassy which is to reach and connect with all 23 million-plus Taiwanese, from Keelung in the north to Pingtung in the south, to Hualien in the east and Yunlin to the west; in other words, to every nook and cranny of Taiwan,” Ambassador Pitts added.
According to the Taipei Times, Guatemala is featuring ‘shucos’ and Honduras is promoting ‘baleadas’. A ‘shuco’ is a hotdog featuring sausages, beef, guacamole, tomato sauce, mustard, hot sauce, mayonnaise while the Honduran ‘baleada’ is a flour tortilla filled with fried beans, cheese, plus other ingredients which may include eggs, avocado, and plantains. Guatemala is also featuring shrimp ceviche and coffee.
