La Porta for Lunch

I stop by La Porta in Media, PA for nice Sunday lunches. They have a creative menu, great bartenders, and a comfortable atmosphere. A treat that is worth the calories is the giant meatball. Take a look:

Lots of flavor there and perfectly cooked, as a snack or an appetizer that beast will hit the spot. They usually have some specials, such as this ravioli:

Wow, that plate was bursting with flavor. And there there’s the pizza:

Made to order in a real pizza oven, the thin crust is done just right. I’ve been known to pop in here just for a pizza, and it’s worth it. So if you’re in the area and hungry, try this place out. I might be there. Enjoy every meal.

A drink at Charlie’s, Aruba, video

Still working with the iPhone 6 and that video app. The app is actually more challenging than the iMovie version that comes with the iPhone, which is a disappointment. Still there is some functionality such as exposure control and such that is better. Anyway, here’s a drink at Charlie’s Bar in San Nicolaas, Aruba, DWI.

I hope to get better with this app soon. It is convenient to upload directly from the iPhone. Make blogging a bit more immediate and fun. Still, needs some work and practice. Stay tuned for the results.

Weihenstephaner, iPhone 6, video

Stopped into a Bavaria Restaurant near Palm Beach, Aruba, DWI for a tasty Weihenstephaner. Bavaria is a great place for all sorts of German beer and food. They’re going to be adding some new things to the menu soon. So, if you’re visiting the island, check in to see what’s on offer. He’s the quick look video:

That’s a darn good beer, served by pleasant people. Enjoy every meal… and drink, too. Bon dia from Aruba.

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.
