This is a local joint, mostly take-away, but there are a few seats at the counter where you can enjoy your snack and read Diario, the local newspaper.

The food here is local, simple, hearty fare. The prices are reasonable, meaning currently you’ll spend about 20 florins or less for a platter like you see below.

Of course, each day they have a few specials. I recommend going early for lunch to get your selection. Below is the grilled chicken platter.

There’s plenty of food there, enough rice for 3 people underneath the chicken. This might be an easy alternative for a quick meal during your stay. Bon dia.

Gallo Rojo, Aruba, iPhone video

Stopped at Gallo Rojo in San Nicolaas, Aruba, DWI recently. This is a corner joint that served breakfast and baked goods, not to mention the local papers and cold drinks. Did a little iPhone video just for fun. Here it is:

Tasty ham, egg, and cheese sandwich there. Just what you might need on the way to or from Baby Beach or to start the day after a long night. Enjoy every meal. Bon dia.

Kikoriko, Aruba

  • Kikoriko recently opened in Aruba, DWI. This is a rotisserie chicken joint, a food I really enjoy.

The place operates on a simple system. You step up to the counter, order your platter than wait a few minutes while they make it up for you. Dining is eat in, or take out. I decdied to eat in, and got a half chicken platter with a few sides that you see below:

That was a tasty meal with local variations on the sides. In Aruba, you’ll find most local places serve double starch. So, you get potatoes and rice. Good for carb loading if you have some major activity planned. The meal was generally tasty. The price was right. Give this place a try. Easy to find on the main road heading toward Santa Cruz.

Zany Folk Art, Aruba

Driving around Aruba, you’ll find some zany folk art, sort of off-the-cuff displays of things. Check this one out:

King of whacky but interesting in an odd way. It’s fun to roam about, off the beaten path, discovering things like this. You’ll never know what you’ll find.
