Get a taste of Curaçao...
Curaçao is an island rich with cultural diversity, and the food matches the description. Travel + Leisure magazine ranks Curaçao as one of the 'Best Caribbean Islands for Foodies', and it's the island's diversity that sets it apart from the rest. From traditional Dutch cuisine to Brazilian, Indonesian and Japanese, Curaçao offers a little bit of everything. If you want a taste of what the locals eat, try some krioyo (Creole) favorites including keshi yená (stuffed cheese), yuana (stewed iguna) and kokada (coconut patties).
