Although keshi yena–which consists of a large, round ball of cheese stuffed with spiced meat that is either steamed or baked–is widely known as the national dish in Curaçao, with the level of multiculturalism in the country, there’s a literal melting pot of dishes that will excite the palate of the average world traveller.
