We think that you must not miss this delicacy when you’re on Bonaire! A lot of local people eat this ‘snack’ as breakfast or lunch. At some of the popular selling points you have to be there before 11am, or they will already be sold out!

While spending your holiday on Bonaire you can’t miss the pastechi. A lot of local people eat this ‘snack’ as breakfast or lunch. At some of the popular selling points you have to be there before 11am, or they will already be sold out! Every family has its own family recipe for the filling, but the most common are: keshi (cheese), galina (chicken), karni (meat) and kabritu (goat). 

Pastechi you will find at almost every supermarket or local ‘snèk’, but our two favorites are the pastechi of Techno Cafe on the airport and Brandaris Cafe in the center of Kralendijk.  

Back home and feeling an urgent need for Bonerian food? You can have a look at the website of Jurino Ignacio, a Dutch chef from Curaçao, who wrote a book about the recipes of Bonaire, Aruba and Curaçao. Unfortunately, it’s written in Dutch, but the pictures will already help you to get back in the Antillean atmosphere.
