Eat Local Restaurant Month
Explore, discover and enjoy, says the poster of the upcoming Eat Local Aruba Restaurant Month. That is the idea behind this month-long event in October: everyone is invited to come and try the locally inspired dishes of the various restaurants on the island. And you can do so at a really nice price: a 3-course dinner for $40.
At Que Pasa Restaurant in the Wilhelminastraat the Eat Local party starts off with home-made crab cakes with a tomato chili salsa, served on a green salad with watermelon. The entree is barbecued rubbed grilled pork tenderloin, served with a creamy pineapple sauce, crispy sweet potato fries and sweet deep-fried plantains. But wait: save some space for the finale of this Eat Local feast – a hot banana with a chocolate and caramel sauce is served with coconut ice cream. I know you won’t be able to resist!
The 3-course dinner at the popular restaurant in downtown Oranjestad is winking at the wide range of culinary influences on Aruba. Discover the Caribbean and South-American influences in your menu and enjoy! Bon provecho!
