What To Eat
A typical at-home Aruban dinner consists of stew with meat (beef, chicken, goat or even iguana), rice and vegetables. For an evening out, Yemnanja Woodfired Grill
in the center of capital city Oranjestad offers exceptional and creative healthy fare, such as the Power Bowl with grilled organic chicken breast (pictured top left). For a healthy snack or pre-race lunch in the resort area, try Eduardo’s Beach Shack
(on the beach in front of Playa Linda Resort) for an overflowing acai and fresh fruit bowl (top right), or nearby Garden Fresh Café
(on the street side of the resort) for a create-your-own wrap (bottom left), smoothie or fresh juice. Post-race, feast at your hotel buffet and be sure to try local breakfast favorite pastechi (bottom right), an empanada-like fried pastry filled with Dutch Gouda and any variety of meat. Pastechi pairs perfectly with Aruba’s local hot sauce (and we do mean spicy), pica di papaya.
