For cheap, tasty late-night bites before or after a night of dancing and drinking, Curaçaoans hit the the truk'i pans ("bread trucks"). No visit to Curaçao is complete without a sampler from these food trucks. You can find them dotted around downtown Willemstad and on the side of the road all over the island. Most open around 10pm and serve food into the wee hours, sometimes 3 or 4am. Prices are dirt-cheap, but the food is cooked to order and is pretty much guaranteed to be oversizes, filling, and grease-laden—all the better to soak up any surplus alcohol sloshing around in your bloodstream. You can get anything from cheeseburgers to lomitos (steak sandwiches) to barbecue chicken or ribs.
