Have you ever thought restaurants would be better if they replaced printed menus with an adorable older gentleman who draws the menu at your table? You’ll love Jaanchi’s in Westpunt, where the titular owner sits down with every. single. customer. and walks through the options of the day. The main attraction: iguana, in stewed or soup form. “It tastes like chicken,” assures Jaanchi. The place is packed with family history: Jaanchi’s grandmother and father missed their boat from Bonaire to Curaçao, and good thing — it shipwrecked off the coast, with only one survivor. When they finally arrived months later, they opened a coffee corner in Westpunt, where the restaurant stands today.
What they do: Traditional Curaçaoan food
