Eat something fried
We locals like fried food! And we guarantee that you will like it too! The best fried local snack is pastechi. It is not difficult to get your hand on some pastechi’s, just look out for a snèk. Snèks are social gathering places along the road where you can buy refreshments and basic essentials. You can recognize them as holes in the wall with people in front of them socializing. Just make sure you stop at one with local people, in order to get a good pastechi.
Besides the Curacao fried delights, you should also take the opportunity of the fact that you are in a Dutch Territory. Eat some Dutch snacks like bitterballen, kroketten or frikandellen Most of the restaurants have them as part of their snack platter. We can also recommend ordering a portion Dutch fries on the side with pindasaus (peanut sauce), just delicious! There are also specialized snackbars as they are being called. They are like independently owned fast food joints that serve Dutch fast food. At the snackbar offer you a wide variety of fried snacks to choose from and you can mix and match a complete meal made out of fried delights.
