In the month of September, visitors and locals alike are looking forward to the Aruba Wine and Dine Restaurant Week. It is a week-long festival of crazy prices and wonderful menus at seven of the most popular restaurants on the island. For just 35 florins (at Café the Plaza and Nos Clubhuis) or 45 florins (at the other restaurants) you are presented with mouthwatering three-course menus. The chefs of the various restaurants have come up with tasty combinations, proudly showcasing their restaurants. In short: check out the 10th Restaurant Week on Aruba, which is held from September 2 through September 9, and enjoy dinner at MooMba Beach, Nos Clubhuis, Salt & Pepper Restaurant, Tango, Café the Plaza and Que Pasa. Or order a special 3-course meal for delivery or take out at cumindanacas.com at any time of the day.
Just to give you a sneak peak of the available options, we hereby mention a few that we think are especially tantalizing. What struck us as exceptionally delish is the Spicy Chicken at Café the Plaza and the Seafood Vol-au-Vent at MooMba Beach with shellfish and 3 different catches. Also, the Shrimp ala Plancha at Nos Clubhuis and Grouper Caprese at cumindanacas.com sound delicious. Que Pasa offers Veal Cheeks with chorizo, while Salt & Pepper serves an Octopus Carpaccio and 50 Hrs Beef Short Ribs. Tango Argentine Grill, always a hotspot during restaurant week, will grill Filet Mignon, Blackened Wahoo and a Mixed Grill. And we’re just mentioning a few of the choices here!
The proceeds of the Restaurant Week will go to Maris Stella, the home for Aruba’s elderly. It is just one more reason to go out to dinner during this super special week.
