650. Kokada (Curaçao-style Coconut Candy)

Curaçao’s Coco Balentien (29) has broken Japan’s single-season HR record (55) hitting his 56th and 57th HR on Sunday, September 15, 2013!!! Coco’s journey is particularly inspiring – and not just because he’s from tiny little Curaçao – but because he was

656. Curaçao’s Multi-Ethnic Menu

A well-traveled, self-proclaimed ‘culture addict’ college friend, Morgan Courtney, just spent her (mini) honeymoon in Curaçao and blogged about it here: The Global Gamine / Curacao Has Heart, Part 1: Willemstad and Okra. I find Morgan’s perspective on ‘Curaçao’ cuisine particularly awesome: “Yambo, frankly,

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,

770. Kala (Black-eyed Pea Fritters)

Our Kala sure gets around! She’s known as Akara in Nigeria, Akla in Sierra Leone, Koosé in Ghana, Acarajé in Bahia (Brazil), but no matter where she is, she’s consistently a pleasant, unpredictable kick to our taste buds. She travels by street
