My wife and I discovered Taste of Belgium during our trip to Aruba in late May (Thank you to TripAdvisor App - don't leave home without it). We went there for brunch. My wife had Pain au poulet épicé (spicy chicken sandwich with marinated, spicy chicken pieces, onions, peppers, mushrooms and a herb mayonnaise). I had 2 home-made waffles with butter, syrup and powder sugar with a side order of bacon. Both dishes were delicious! They have a great Belgium beer menu. Each beer comes in its own unique beer glass. My wife and I each tried different beer and both of us were very satisfied. Our friendly waiter was very helpful in explaining each uniqueness of the beer.
We went back to Taste of Belgium for dinner. We started with an appetizer - Tuna tataki tartar – sprinkled with Cajun herbs and lemon and seared over a hot fire, served on a sesame salad with an orange soy syrup. It's a pretty big portion, so we were able to share. It was good, but I think we would have enjoyed it more if the portion was a bit smaller. More of that in a second... For the main course, my wife ordered Beer-braised ribs – ribs prepared in Belgian beer and herbs, served with frites, a salad and cocktail sauce. I ordered the Grouper – pan-fried filet of grouper served in a creamy sauce of green herbs with vegetables and mashed potatoes. And we tried different types of Belgium beer to go along with our dinner. Again, the portions are huge. Both dishes were good... Of the two main courses, we liked the beer-braised ribs better. Here I go again...we almost wished the portions were a little smaller so that we got the feeling of wanting just a bit more (is that strange?).
Overall, we had a great experience at Taste of Belgium. Good food, great beer, friendly service. The price is very reasonable - lower taxes help. We didn't make a reservation for brunch or for dinner and we had no trouble getting a table, but late May is a slow season in Aruba. We were told that from the Winter to Easter is the busy season in Aruba. We were able to walk from where we stayed (Marriott Ocean Club). We will definitely be back!
