Honduras is not known as a culinary capital and most meals consist of stewed or grilled meat accompanied by a generous portion of rice and beans as well as a fried plantain. In the more touristy areas, such as Utila and Roatan, there are a range of international restaurants, which cater mainly for travellers. Seafood is common on these islands thanks to the easy access to the sea.
For most Hondurans, breakfast consists of a baleada or two - flour tortillas folded in half and filled with refried beans and sour cream as standard but most have the option of adding eggs, bacon, avocado, ground beef or vegetables. For lunch, a typical meal would be a pastelito, which is very similar to a baleada but tends to be more meat-orientated and is deep fried.
Safe eating while travelling in Honduras
Honduras is still a developing country and, as such, its hygiene standards are lower than those in the West. Restaurants in tourist destinations are fine but once you stray from the beaten path caution should be exercised. Street food is the norm here, but if something looks old or like it has been in the sun for a bit too long, under attack from flies and other bugs, stay away from it. With a bit of common sense everyone should be able to eat safely.
