Eating Iguana in Curacao
Iguana is one of those local delicacies in Curacao that when it's offered to you, you have to try it. While it's not particularly intimidating - you could be offered fried tarantula if you were in Cambodia - it's still one of those dishes that you think twice about. But you shouldn't. The place on the island known best for serving it is Jaanchies, and when you're there, Jaanchie himself will hold your hand through all of it. Maybe that's actually why most people go through with eating it, but the point is that they do. So when you find yourself in Curacao, head to Jaanchies, tell him you want his specialty and dig in. You'll find it almost tastes like chicken. Almost.
