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.

Scott’s Brats, Aruba, iPhone video

We’re making a quick visit to Scott’s Brats on Aruba’s Palm Beach. This joint will serve up some comfort food that will keep you going all day. Check out the iPhone vid:

Enjoy the bratwurst and the view, which is hard to beat in this part of the Caribbean. Prices are good, too. And if you like the Green Bay Packers, you’ll have lots to talk about. Bon dia.

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.

Kitesurfing, Aruba, iPhone video

With Aruba’s fantastic winds, kitesurfing is a very popular sport here. On the south end of the island is a great spot where you can catch both the wind and some waves. Warning: Not for the timid! Here’s some iPhone 6 video showing you a few people riding the sea.

Be careful on this part of the island. The wind and waves can be a challenge. Still, it is an exciting sport and Aruba is one of the best places in the world to do it. Bon dia.
