David Rosengarten goes in search of The Real Deal Meal in Curaçao and finds it at the old market

Old marketWILLEMSTAD – According to Forbes’ contributor, David Rosengarten, traveling anywhere in the world today means a constant, frustrating search for authenticity. It is easier than ever to fall into the traps of non-local food, or “local” food generated for tourists. “The gastronomic traveler always wants to avoid these, always wants to find instead the equivalent of what the local mamas are cooking at home, which usually isn’t easy. But if you don’t stick to this discipline…the world becomes a blur, and you might as well stay at home, Rosengarten indicated.

According to Rosengarten, things are no different on the island of Curaçao. Curacao is a beautiful place for beaches, snorkeling, diving, and late-night music, and the island has a fine cultural scene in Willemstad, its capital, fraught with reminders of the long Dutch history on the island, even the current Dutch presence.
