() We here at stupidDOPE are always on the hunt for the freshest foods whilst traveling. After taking a break from catching some sun at the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino we decided to try our luck at something from the sea. We hit the jackpot with a variation on ceviche that knocked our socks off. Tuna Tiradito, the way Ever de Pena designs it, encapsulates the spirit of Aruba in each of the ingredients he utilizes. From handcrafted aji amarillo sauce all the way down to the amaranth microgreens, your palate is guaranteed to notify you of the fresh, sweet, and salty flavors that Aruba is known for. And let’s just take a minute to appreciate Ever de Pena’s attention to mouthfeel detail, because it is unmatched. It’s actually pretty unreal that he uses ingredients in multiple formats, such as fresh cilantro and it’s oil counterpart. The sweet potato puree also paired swimmingly with it’s dehydrated equivalent. So, the next time you check into the Aruba Marriott & Stellaris Casino in Aruba, make sure to try the Tuna Tiradito! Your tongue will thank you later. Much love to Kwame Garcia for his incredibly dope beat.
