Real Butcher (Hanger) Steak at MooMba during Restaurant Week

In the month of September, visitors and locals alike are looking forward to the Aruba Wine and Dine Restaurant Week. It is a week-long festival of crazy prices and wonderful menus at nine of the most popular restaurants on the island. For just AWG. 45 ($ 25.75) you are presented with mouthwatering three-course menus. The chefs of the various restaurants have come up with tasty combinations, proudly showcasing their restaurants. In short: check out the 9th Restaurant Week on Aruba, which is held from September 11 – 18, and enjoy dinner at Hadicurari, MooMba Beach, Nos Clubhuis, Salt & Pepper Restaurant, Tango, Fishes & More, Dragonfly, Café the Plaza and Que Pasa.

At MooMba the Restaurant Week promises to be fantastic. The appetizer options are roasted sweet potato and carrot soup, topped with a swirl of cream and crispy bacon or a Thai crunchy chicken salad with cucumber wonton strips, Asian sesame dressing and honey-roasted peanuts. Entrees are during the second week of September a tuna and shrimp tempura with oriental sauce, wasabi mayo, seaweed salad and grilled vegetables or chopped chicken piccata in a creamy white wine bell pepper sauce with spinach mashed potatoes. Another great main course option is Real Butcher Steak (Hanger Steak) served with a creamy peppercorn cognac sauce, vegetable brunoise and mashed Parmesan potatoes. Dessert is a choice between a trio of chocolate delights (brownie, double chocolate cake and chocolate ice cream) or crème brûlée infused with Grand Marnier. It sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t. And there are wine and beer specials available as well.

Part of the Restaurant Week’s profits will go to Maris Stella, the home for Aruba’s elderly. It is just one more reason to go out to dinner at the Aruba Wine and Dine restaurants during this super special, delicious week. And a tip: please make your reservations in advance, as these will give you the best seats in the house.
