Curacao eats!!!

#686. Johnny Cakes a.k.a Journey Cakes... These fluffy-fried, golden-sweet, semi-flattened spheres of pure goodness are mostly found at snèks (snack bars) in Curaçao and are fair game for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They’re perfectly fine on their own or stuffed with Dutch cheese, ham, worst dushi (sweet salami), worst salú (savory salami), chicken, beef, corned beef, tuna, cod fish, conch, eggs… and even the Dutch favorite: kroket!

#998. Peanut Sauce... We can’t tell you how glad we are that the Dutch had the good sense of importing this creamy heaven on earth from their former colony, Indonesia (Dutch East Indies). A staple Dutch and Dutch Caribbean condiment, us yu’i Kòrsou tend to be highly protective over our Sòus di Pinda recipe...

#810. Oliebollen in Dutch, "Oily Balls" in English... Delicious either way. Oliebollen pop up stores appear in the Netherlands as early as mid-to-late November and coincide with dropping temperatures, comfort food cravings and holiday season. Considered a widely popular tradition, the Dutch (population: 16-17 million) consumes about 130 million oliebollen (7-8 oliebollen pp) each holiday season!
