Steakhouse Menu Boasts New Dinner Specialties, Appetizers, Entrées, Desserts and Cocktails – Just a year ago, the Ambergris Today/iTravel Belize staff had the pleasure of visiting the San Ignacio Hotel Resort and enjoying the wonderful amenities of one of Cayo’s premier resorts. One of those amenities is the Running W Steakhouse that allows you to start your day with a delicious breakfast on a dining terrace with lovely scenic views and end a fun-filled day with gourmet dining. Savory dishes are enjoyed in the indoor/outdoor restaurant, or ordered for room service in the privacy of your room. The menu has the best of International and Belizean Cuisine featuring meats from their own family’s ranch (Running W Ranch), from which the restaurant got its name.
Just this week, Running W Steakhouse & Restaurant announced that it will launch its latest menu that features new, innovative items made fresh daily by their Chefs. The restaurant, will introduce the new menu on December 1, 2014, which includes eight new appetizers, four new sandwiches & salads, nine new entrées, six new desserts and several new cocktails.
During the process of revamping the Running W Steakhouse menu, the restaurant tested many of the new dishes on the weekly specials menu. “We had so many great ideas for new dishes that it became extremely difficult choosing what should be featured permanently,” said Kristin Utsman, Assistant Manager. “We have enough new dishes to feature three different menus that will be introduced seasonally.”
The lunch and dinner menu now showcases the new appetizer, Filet Mignon Beef Carpaccio: tender thin sliced grass fed filet topped with house made caper crème, roasted red peppers and shaved parmesan accompanied with our own French baguette garlic crostini. If you’re in the mood for a lighter appetizer, try the new Chicken Lettuce Cups: Hoisin scented chicken vegetable slaw served with spicy peanut coconut dipping sauce and fresh lettuce leaf wraps.
The restaurant’s new Bar Bites menu, served at the recently introduced chic Lobby Bar, features a Habanero Queso Fresco hors d’oeuvre that tantalizes the taste buds with a perfect mix of local fresh cheese, Belizean herbs and spices alongside fresh baked bread. Sliders of the month and their famous Shrimp Poppers can also be found on the Bar Bites Menu and Dinner Menu. Happy Hour, which is Monday- Friday from 4pm-7pm, also features $4BZ Belikin beers, 2 for 1 local rum drinks and $10BZ Cocktail Specials.
New entrées on the dinner menu include the Coconut Crusted Caribbean Grouper: Fresh grouper filet coated in shredded fresh coconut and fried to perfection drizzled with a Thai inspired ginger coconut milk sauce and served with Coconut Rice.
Other new menu items include:
Tender Fried Conch (seasonal)
Popcorn Lobster Bites
Aged Angus Ribeye in Red Wine or Chimichurri Sauce
House Made Pita Pizza (Pomodoro or White Garlic)
House Made Capellini Spaghetti
Pan Seared Pork Tenderloin
Cho Cho Cinnamon “Apple” Pie
Chocolate Mousse Cake topped with Chocolate Ganache
The modern Baroque design Lobby Bar is also boasting new additions with this latest rollout, including several new cocktails. Try the signature Cocktail, Maya Refrescante: A perfect mix of tequila, tamarind, freshly squeezed orange and lime juice, shaken to perfection and served with a sweet & salty rim.
The new menu items, new cocktails, dinner specialties and Happy Hour specials will be available beginning December 1, 2014 at the Running W Steakhouse & Restaurant, located in the San Ignacio Resort Hotel, San Ignacio, Belize.
