Eataly food truck, Aruba, DWI

Eataly food truck serves some of your Italian favorites. They’re located at the “Texaco Traffic Circle” in the parking lot of the Eagle Bowling Alley/Hipz fitness club. Plenty of parking there. They open around 8:00 PM, but best to go a little later after they have things set up and ready.

I enjoyed the pork sandwich which was very tasty but needed a bit more meat inside to make it a better value and hearty sandwich. Here’s a look at the main ingredient:

There is a connection between this truck and Gianni’s Restaurant near the hotel area. At any rate, if you’re in the mood for an evening snack or meal, this may be the place for you. Enjoy!

Hollywood Smokehouse, Aruba, (2014)

Way back when, I posted about the Hollywood Smokehouse when it was located in San Nicolaas, Aruba. Well, it’s moved. Now it is located in the pedestrian mall adjacent to the Alhambra Casino, which is much closer to all of you on that side of the bridge.

I enjoyed lunch here recently. Ordering a couple of favorites to test the quality of the food. First, here’s a quick look at the seating area:

Plenty of tables for groups large and small. Good service, too. Now, here’s a look at the grouper filet with sides of rice and potato.

Fish was perfectly prepared and that potato on the side is boiled with an onion flavor that really was clever and delicious. Next, you see their version of the bandeja paisa platter:

This version of the platter was slightly different from what I’m used to. Instead of a steak, it was shredded beef in the upper center of the tray. Also, the beans were on the plate instead of in a separate bowl to the side. It was all quite tasty, however, and went down well with the local hot sauce. Finally, here’s a look at a page from the menu for a look at some other dishes and current prices (February 2014):

If you’re on the island of Aruba, this may be an easy stop with reasonable prices and decent food as well as something different. Enjoy every meal.
