El Gallo Rojo, Aruba

El Gallo Rojo is a great corner joint in San Nicolaas, Aruba. I go here after an all-nighter in town or if I want a quick breakfast sandwich or an ice-cold Coca-Cola. Service is always with a smile, the food simple and cheap. Here’s a short video.

This reminds me of the small-town corner stores and diners I went to as a young boy. It’s fun to sit here, watch the people come and go, pick up some Spanish or Papiamento lessons, and read the local newspapers. I’ve done a fair amount of writing here, too.

Just another spot that makes San Nicolaas an authentic place. Bon dia from Aruba.
