roses are red,
violets are blue,
elaine, ommi, gina
i just can't beat you.
but of course when i see
the balls (fish) of ommi
i'll remember that we
were cheated by bobbie.
for she will be there
tasting balls. that's not fair!
before even the queen
gets to enter the scene.

The queen goes before you
She gets to see, smell and taste it's true,
And if you stay in her good graces
She might save one or two.
Omni's the best
We know this is true
What will he say when meets you two?

Talking Re: cooks restaurant


Some roses are yellow, and some roses are white
There are balls just for batting, and others you bite.
It's clearly been stated day after day
For the ones that are jewels, a price you must pay.
I'm willing to do it, the money I've got,
For Ommi has told us that his really are hot.
I'll sacrifice time, though I'm just a bit leery..
They'll be nothing left after Bobbie and sherry.
Those two ladies are first, then Gina and I..
By the time that we get there, I can hear Ommi sigh..
"They took all that I had, I have no more balls
The phone is on mute, I can't take all these calls.
A fish has just so many, there's nothing can I do..
They gobbled them up, not one left for you!"
And sadly we'll leave, our dreams up in smoke
Off to the next stop to have rum and coke.
Ommi, my friend, though we've never met...
I'll lay you odds, it's a very good bet
Because of this board, because of this fun
You'll be getting a crowd when we all are done!!

yes ommi will get cooks a crowd and deserves it

so gather round owners, chefs, and what ever
bring us your balls, compete so you never
can say that we slighted you or what you cook
bring them to us for a taste and a look

sincerely it would be my fondest wish
to get to taste fishballs in every dish

Talking Re: cooks restaurant

I agree sherry...

It seems a quandary we have on our hand
About our beautiful island with the white sand..
Contestants we need, so lend us your ear..
It could be fun, you have nothing to fear.
The cooks, and the chefs, the owners, too
Are you listening to me, I’m talking to you!
Must we go to the island, and write on the walls..
“Are you brave enough to show us your balls?”
We’ll sign you up, but the rules are the rules..
We ask for nothing, just show us your jewels.
The decision is ours, we pick the winner..
We’ll feel them and rub them, and eat them for dinner.
It’s up to us to determine their size
Nothing gets by us, so they’ll be no lies.
So gather your courage, put modesty aside..
They do you no good if they always hide.
Ayo I must say, I think it is time,
I may be banned if I continue this rhyme.
I’m walking a fine line, of that I am sure
Can’t count the times I’ve done it before!
Yet I continue, I trudge one more mile..
Hoping and praying that I made you smile.

I Love Aruba Re: cooks restaurant

I wanted to come up with some clever little poem, but since I'm neither a queen or a teacher I couln't top any of yours. We did get a chance to eat at Cooks this evening and I daresay it was WONDERFUL. The restaurant is beautiful and Ommi is just a fantastic person. When the fishballs arrived at our table, both DH and I said at the same time, "My those are big balls!" Elaine and Sherry, they were delectable and tasty. Yum, yum. Seriously, they were really good!! It was a wonderful meal and very reasonably priced. I had the medium portion of lobster thermidor and DH had the barricuda. Besides the fact that both meals were excellently prepared, the presentation was out of this world. It is a restaurant that I would definately go to again. In fact, we will probalby take our friends there next week when they arrive. We had our picture taken with Ommi and when I get home, I'll have my daughter help me post it.

When I said Ommi had some big balls, I meant BIG. DH was just as impressed as me. We each ate one. You certainly couldn't just pop one in your mouth. I would say 2 balls was plenty as an appetizer for 2 people. They were about the size of a tennis ball. They came with a wonderful sauce and several slices of plantain. Really good!

From far they came yet how close they shared,
Both balls they ate with no shame.

Satisfied they definitely were,
From their expression you confirmed because they were out of words.

The Balls...Them Balls...Them Balls...
That's all she wrote in awe.

DH and Bobbie, I just had to dedicate this little poem to you. It was great meeting you and talking to you. We had quite some laughs. We'll see you next week and we'll chat some more.

To get off the subject of balls, I had a lovely dinner at Cook's 3 weeks ago, I started wih a delicious glass of red wine, then escargot for appetizer and as the main course the 12 oz. rib eye which was cooked to perfection. There were lot's of vegetables which came on the plate. Ommi would have to tell you what the veggies were as I don't remember. The only one I do remember is the potato which looked like a pear. It was soooo good.

Ommi & I had a nice talk. Before even introducing myself, I asked Ommi "how are your balls". Here we go again with the balls. Heidi, Ommi's wife was there that night. A beautiful lady. Their two adoralble children came in with their grandparents. So cute.

I recommend that you give Cook's a try. It's right up the street (opposite side) after El Gaucho's. I was there on a Friday night when it's was live entertainment which was very good.

Thank you Liz,

It was a pleasure meeting you and talking to you. I'm glad you enjoyed your dinner. The vegies are fresh Gold Beets with Fresh Red Beets accompanied by Fresh Baby Spinach in fresh tarragon garlic sauce and fresh corn. The pear was spinach breaded mashed potato shaped into a pear deep fried then topped with a fresh spinach leaf.

Vegies have changed a little. Instead of the Red Beets and corn we now have fresh baby corn with real and fresh baby carrot. Gold beets and spinach are still served.

Not to forget...the balls are still available. Just the other night alone we served 36 pairs.

sitting in our refrigerator are two gigantic balls. we will take a picture of them later. that along with enough leftovers for our lunch make it hard to decide which to eat first. ok, yeah, we are going to taste balls for lunch. gigantic balls. really big balls. the comments about them will be reserved until we get to taste them but suffice it to say the are round and perfectly formed along with being very heavy and of great color.

now on to the meal itself. run, don't walk, to cooks. there were 3 of us for dinner and we all got fish. murray and i had red snapper in garlic sauce. the other diner had grouper. besides the portions being huge and the plate running over with food, it was the best piece of fish we had on the island. everything on the plate is edible including the garnish.

cooks is a little hard to find but it is within a block of el goucho and peanuts and far superior to almost every restaurant we normally go to. an added bonus is a parking lot right next to it. no in town battle to find room for your car.

the report on the balls will be later today or at latest tomorrow.

I need to say, it was our pleasure and honor to have Sherry and Murray visit us at our restaurant. I enjoyed a lot our conversations. They are wonderfull people and it was truely an honor for me to meet them. Hopefully we can arrange a bar hopping, restaurant hopping or ball hopping on their next trip.

I need to mention that Sherry and I are working on a great activity for August, which all of you will enjoy very much. I think as soon as we are ready we will announce. So, stay tuned to VisitAruba.com.

besides being a really nice guy with great balls, ommi also has a great waitstaff that actually seems to have fun working there. add on to that a singer that really impressed us and a totally beautiful restaurant and we are hooked.

ommi, don't give too much away yet. i promise you on this board will be first to know if what we are trying to plan works out.

Please be informed that tickets for Saturday's event are sold out since yesterday.
This is amazing because we did only 1 week of local promotion.
For those who reserved their tickets we have them here. As soon as you call to inform us where you are staying at we will deliver or you may pick them up at Cooks Restaurant.

For those who did not get the chance to make it for this event...don't worry. At the end of August or the first weekend of October we will have another event with another local professional.

Keep visiting this board for your information and/or visit us at www.cooksrestaurant.com for your updates.

Hi Ommi!!
Hi Elain,

That is exactly the plan. We are planning on a regular event each month. Each month will be with a different artist and the entertainment will be different as well.

In addition, if things go well, we will open Cooks Sky Terrace. This will be an outdoor terrace on the top floor overlooking the Cruise Ship port. This will make it possible for us to put in an elevator that will go to both floors. The elevator will enable everyone who have difficulties with our stairs to be able to enjoy everything we have to offer at the restaurant.

Maybe I am telling too much, but there is a lot more to come, so, stay tuned to VisitAruba.com and our website www.cooksrestaurant.com.

just a quick note for those that don't read the blogs. we stopped by to visit ommi last night and he says he is preparing a special delicacies menu that will be coming soon. we got the opportunity to try a traditional aruban cream soup. it was amazing. if it is a sample of things to come, we will be trying many things on the new menu.

back to cooks. this time murray's stomach was in better shape so we actually stayed for dinner.

started with a shrimp cocktail. the shrimp were huge and perfectly cooked. we followed it with our favorite meal there which is red snapper. it is the biggest, tastiest fish we have eaten on the island. it also has enough garnishing veggies to fill even the biggest appetite.

now comes dessert. ommi picked the desserts and i am not sure what he calls my chocolate creation but it is wonderful. murray was served tiramisu cheese cake. cooks is the only place on the island that serves it. that is a shame because i, who hate tiramisu, have to say it was delicious.

Sherry, you will not believe this, I just saw the picture of Ommi on this post and Ommi is a dead ringer for me! You could hardly tell the difference between us, except he is younger, has a little more hair and a smaller stomach. Seriously.

Sherry, it was our pleasure serving you and Murray here at Cooks. I enjoyed our conversation a lot and I wished there was enough time to chat a bit longer.

Regarding the Shrimps, that is not the only thing that is big in size at Cooks. Remember those Fish Balls? Our dishes as you noted can keep anyone in food for the next day as well.

The chocolate creation is a flourless chocolate cake. It is not a mousse instead it is real chocolate, like a chocolate cake should be.

We are looking forward to your next visit.

I Love Aruba Re: cooks restaurant

Although time occasionally stands still, my ticker's getting closer. With summer almost over, the holidays not that far away, it'll be here before I know it. I, too, can't wait to meet you and your family!

I may start a contest asking what name I should put my reservation in, and since I'm there a month, I can use more then one!!
