    review of the Urataka Center

    Aruba’s Social Column “Bati Bleki” by Rona Coster December 31, 2012
    Posted by Aruba Daily on December 31st, 2012
    WHER’S THE BEEF? AT URATAKA CENTER. We were invited this week for Happy Hour in the cunucu, in Santa Cruz, at some off-the-beaten-path hilltop with a nice breeze, where the goats, lizards and chicken, frequently feast on the beans, peanuts and corn, our farmer-at-heart host was attempting to grow. Right at the center of the yard, surrounded by a goat-deterring fence stood a Mata di Brasil, which I swear I have never seen before. How beautiful, with a curvy trunk and gorgeous yellow flowers. These trees were once abundant on the island, earning Aruba the Isla de Brasil name. Then darkness fell and we piled into cars to travel to Urataka Center. I have been to UC before, for a photo shoot and for Happy Hour, but never before for dinner. OMG. The burgers. They are amazing and definitely worth the trip to the rum shop. Apparently, the whole world already knows that UC serves the best burgers and the best pizza on the island, except me.Owner Rigo Croeze was around to recite how the burger is scientifically stacked on a home-baked bun, then topped with a hand-packed fat and juicy meat patty, fried egg, secret sauce, and garish. Ok, that really opened our appetite. Then we ordered the thin crust pizza. Wow, really good, and you can even have a Burger-Pizza, layering the same beefy ingredients on a pie, instead of a bun, which is a genius invention. On the terrace, enjoying the company of assorted family members we met Armin Solognier, Gregory Croeze, Dalila & Serge Mansur, Selena Goedhoop-Croes, Glen Croes with cute visiting daughters Julie & Jenny, and other dignitaries, too numerous to name. Very cool spot, with a perfect view of the Hooiberg silhouette.

    Bugaloe Beach Bar....Nice to sit out on the pier and have a good burger! Thought they were pretty well priced also and a short walk down the beach!

    For me, the "Bingo Burger" can't be beat. Love the fried egg!

    That's an easy answer for me. Hand's down, I think the best burger anywhere can be had at the Marriott Stellaris at the Waves Beach Bar and Grill. The burgers are huge too. My husband and I always split one, because I can only eat 1/3. They split the burger and fries into two baskets for us when we tell them we're sharing (we tip for two meals). We've had the Marriott burger at different locations, and they just don't measure up to what they serve in Aruba. Maybe it's partially the beach setting?

    We're going to be in Aruba in two weeks. Where do I get a Bingo Burger? is it a place or a menu item?
