I'm staying at BelMar in two weeks and was wondering about grocery prices and availability. Am I right that BelMar looks awesome?

"Richard's" and "Beefeater", too
|By Ed Wolfstein, AIA on Thursday, August 17, 2000 - 8:56 pm:|
Richards has been my favorite for years! And for Chinese, I've always liked China Nobo - not exactly easy to find, but any cab driver will get you there.

I've noticed that this branch of the "Groceries" has moved towards favorite "Restaurants". So here's a restaurant tid bit:

FYI, "frikandelles" (I think I spelled that right) are a Dutch "hot dog", grayish in color, quite tasty with a curry ketchup and mayonnaise and are made from horse meat and poultry. Available in all supermarkets, and some restaurants. Also at bars as a happy hour snack :-)
|By Lorraine Meadows on Friday, August 18, 2000 - 8:36 pm:|
I didn't know what they were made of, Oh! (you can stop laughing!)
|By Glen Reem on Friday, August 18, 2000 - 8:40 pm:|
No one here has mentioned bringing some
|By Lorraine Meadows on Friday, August 18, 2000 - 9:02 pm:|
We always bring a cooler full of frozen things,cold cuts, NY steaks and homemade pasta sauce, chops and homemade entrees, I make here and freeze half. The food stays frozen untill we get to Divi where I put it in our freezer there. I pack it tight,NO DRY ICE, the airlines won't let it, then we tape it up with duct tape and lable it and send it with our the rest of our bags and check them thru, "Knock on wood" they always have arrived with us, and the cooler comes in handy for the beach and wet clothes on the way home. The resturants are reasonable and wonderful on Bonaire, but sometimes in 3 wks we like to stay"at home" We bar-B-que too!

FYI All cuts of meat, roasts, chops, etc (as well as some of the best NY strip steaks are availabe here (I roasted a 12 pound turkey yesterday). You have to buy in bulk,however. 12 or 13 one inch sirloins run abut nafl 100 ($60)
|By Robert Deal on Tuesday, August 22, 2000 - 4:43 pm:|
I agree with Michael. We have always done well with roasts and steaks, especially the Argentine beef fron Consales...yes the cuts are a bit different sometimes, but Argentine flank steak for the grill is something I try to find even here in the States! We do bring some large vacumm-packed packages of cold cuts with us for sandwiches, though...just a personal preference.
