Capital and largest city in Suriname
If you are the type of person that likes fusion kitchen, you are in luck. The Surinamese cuisine reflects its cultural diversity. Suriname is home to an incredible array of world cuisines, from India, Java, China, The Netherlands… Better still, the different groups have influenced one another over time, giving rise to a ‘melting pot’. African, Jewish, Portuguese, Lebanese and even Amerindian flavours have been grafted on to Creole roots.
To mention but a few examples, the emblematic dishes are Roti (buttered Indian Chapati, usually filled with chicken, potatoes and vegetables), Indonesian Nasi Goreng, Chinese Bakmi (wheat noodles with pork in soy sauce) and, last but not least, Pom (a kind of meat pie with chicken).
