    Eating Like a Local/Budget Traveling to Aruba

    Sort of a tag to Budget Traveling To Aruba Thread.

    Where or what are your favorite places to eat like a local? Quoting Arawak, "these places are food trucks, small establishments with little capacity, family run, open only for lunch break etc."

    We have a few and would love to add to the list.

    I guess we tend to stick to the touristy places like Local Store and West Deck but I would really like to try one of the Sunday BBQ places. Plus the food truck Piece of Cake. Hope people post so we can see some options!

    we have stopped at the food truck near the bowling alley and got a half roasted chicken with potatoes and rice and I believe plantains ..."carb delight"

    we have stopped at Fermins BBQ and liked it, to loved it.

    we visit Local Store and visited Peanuts a couple of times a few years ago.

    our favorite local spot is The Fish House!! 34 Bucutiweg......off behind the airport.

    We've been to The Fish House a few times and would definitely return.

    Have yet to get to Peanuts.

    We like Local Store, Kamini's, Fermin's. There was a Mexican place we visited between the airport and Savaneta that was really good and affordable, but I don't remember the name. When the flea market was across from Bushiri, the BBQ there was awesome.
    I want to grow my own food, but I can't find any bacon seeds...

    Kamini's is a must stop when we pass by.
