One Happy Podcast, Aruba

Recently, Curtis from One Happy Podcast contacted me for an interview. His podcast centers on all things Aruba, so I was thrilled for the opportunity to share my experiences of the island. Here’s the link to the interview:

Curtis asked some great questions and has the patience to let me ramble on about writing, Aruba, and various other things. His podcast is a great way to get first-hand info about the island, so check in frequently.

Bon dia.

Cafe 080, Aruba (2014)

Cafe 080 serves up Dutch-style favorites in a pub atmosphere. This place is located just around the corner from the traffic light in Noord, Aruba, so it’s easy to find and only a couple minutes drive from the high-rise hotel area.

As you can see from the photos above, there is seating outside. There’s also a bar inside with plenty of soccer (football) memorabilia on display.

This place has the best french fries on the island. I stop in to satisfy that craving from time to time as well as to enjoy the various other Dutch food treats that you’ll find on the menu. Prices are very reasonable. So venture out from that resort and try the Cafe 080. If there’s a soccer match on, you’ll be sure to enjoy the vibe here, too.

Rincón Criollo, Aruba (video 2014)

Restaurante Rincón Criollo is a great joint for lunch or supper, especially if you’re passing through Savaneta, Aruba, perhaps on your way back and forth to Baby Beach. You’ll find all your favorite Cuban dishes on the menu at prices that will keep you on budget. I stopped in for the carne a la plancha and here’s the video showing you all the details:

Owner Enrique is a great guy who will make sure you enjoy the meal. Enjoy the other side of the bridge and head out to places like this for a taste of Aruba’s local flavor. Enjoy every meal. Bon dia.

Red Snapper, Aruba (2014)

I’ve posted about Zeerover in Savaneta, Aruba, DWI several times before. Well, here’s a first hand look at some poor red snapper going through the saw in preparation for a fresh meal.

If you like fish, it doesn’t get any fresher than that. Of course, at Zeerover, you’ll have one beautiful view of the Caribbean as well, including the tankers off shore. Stop by for some Aruba local flavor.
