Still, you should eat at least one meal here. It's a small place, with only eight tables, so the wait can be long in the evenings after 7pm.
Hannah's serves a good menu of traditional Belizean food (stewed chicken, white rice, and black beans) for around $3. They also have a selection of curries for around $4. The standard burgers and fish plates are also available, usually around $5.
In the mornings, Hannah's offers a complete breakfast for about $4. It comes with eggs cooked to order, refried black beans, fry jacks (like sopaipillas), fresh-squeezed juice, and coffee or tea. Be sure to ask for some of their featured rain-forest honey to put on your fry jacks. It's unreal.
Hannah's serves only until 9pm, which is a little earlier than most restaurants in town.

This tiny little restaurant along the main drag has everything from traditional Belizean foods to Burmese and Thai curries. I opted for the curry and was not disappointed, as the flavor was out of this world, with great spices and a good amount of heat. We got a seat easily, as it was quite early, but as the evening wore on, more and more people arrived and the level of noise went to an excited chatter, with me catching snippets of conversations about this ruin and that temple.
San Ignacio is a staging ground for a many a young archeologist, and they are not the stereotypical old men anymore, but good-looking 20-somethings all excited and eager to talk about their day’s work.
The atmosphere was wonderful, and as the wine and Belikins flowed, I felt right at home in this little place.
I had read such varied reports about this place on Yahoo, some people claiming to have eaten the best food of their lives and others saying they spent days in hospital after eating here. Funnily enough, if you keep reading these bad reports, at some point, Hannah herself publishes a write-up saying how the bad reports were the result of a "malicious woman in town" who is out "to cause me pain"
You know, she’s probably right, because I read all the bad reports before going, and they seemed very extreme, with no real grounds for proof. The restaurant was clean, and as I already said, the food was wonderful.

Hannah''s is a very small restaurant. We were lucky enough to get the last seat, a minute table by an open window. The restaurant was packed to the brim with other travellers.
The owners previously lived in the United States. One of the cooks - the husband - is from Africa while the wife is Japanese. After our meal, the owner came out to talk to us. They told us about starting their business in San Ignacio, how the first year they had been surprised by the various bug infestations and the rainy season.
In contrast to their origins, the food is Southeast Asian and Indian. We enjoyed a delicioius curry here, along with a yogurt shake. The menu was huge, several pages long. Hannah''s offers many vegetarian items.
Everyone we met was raving about this place, and it lived up to our expectations.
